  • New Pokemon
  • 13 more unknowns by lesser-known second-party devs

Excited by any? Anything not accounted for?


  1. Hmmm…other than the ones that say 3DS on them, I wonder if the rest are for Wii.

  2. Considering Alpha Dream have never made a home console game, I’d say their mystery project is most likely a 3DS game, perhaps another Mario and Luigi game.

    I am curious to what Retro Studios are working on, and to what this ‘new Pokemon game’ is.

  3. Layton, Zelda, Kirby, Paper Mario, Mariokart, Animal Crossing and Rhythm Heaven are all on my Gotta-get list.

  4. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3DS !

  5. PAPER MARIO 3DS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ……I love the Paper Mario series.

    When do you think PM3DS will come out?

    …… Hopefully tomorrow.

  6. Uh, I’m looking foward to Professor Layton 4, and that title that Retro Studios is working on…maybe a new sequel to Earthbound? 😀

  7. i would love a sequel to f-zero i have been waiting for that forever
    anyways my list is
    super mario
    and another pokemon already? if its an actual new one im all for it but if its another remake ill probably skip it

  8. Professor Layton is developed by Level 5. Nintendo only publishes it here and in Europe.

  9. If anything, I want Chibi-Robo 3DS.

  10. it’s gonna be a good year. 🙂

  11. Zelda: Skyward Sword and Pikman sound great to me. If they could give me one more first party Wii game before the end of this generation I’d be really happy.

  12. Skyward Sword. A new Zelda game, I’m all for it!
    I’m surprised and perhaps a little disappointed at the lack of “new” titles though… Xenoblade Chronicles and the wii motion and rhythm games are the 0nly games on there (at least that actually have a name) that aren’t some sort of remake of an older game

  13. New Kirby game on Wii? Why not 3DS?
    Anyway, I might just look into Rhythm Heaven for Wii. And do I even need to mention Skyward Sword?

  14. Count me in for Animal Crossing 3D (I never felt a console version worked right for the amount of active attention the game needs), a Pokémon 3D, and Pikmin 3!!

  15. I need some more 3DS games soon! I went out and bought a GBA game because i disliked steel diver so much, been back on the lite ever since.

  16. And no one mentions Super Mario 3DS in the comments. Lol. That game is something I’m really looking forward to.

  17. @InvisibleMan how do you type in bold???

  18. As i happen to know about some projects for 3ds that is probably not even listed amongst the ones listed only guess is that it is going to be an avalanche of games comming towards christmas. Most of these aren’t original titles though since moste 3rd party developers have not had any possibilitys to get their hands on any dev-kits until quite recently.
