    I’m going to be the oddball here and say that, of the games on this list, I’m actually most excited about FreakyForms Deluxe! The original FreakyForms remains one of the most astonishing titles I’ve ever played, and its *still* one of my very favorite 3DS games. It’s an eShop gem and Nintendo’s most under-appreciated first-party release. The only thing missing was a bit more *game* in it to go along with the amazing creation/collecting. I was hoping for a Brawl-like fighting system, but dungeons’ll do. 🙂

    Of course, I’m also looking forward to Paper Mario, Epic Mickey and Prof. Layton!

    Freaky Forms Deluxe is a Spore Clone. WHERE’S MY ACE ATTORNEY VS PROFESSOR LAYTON GAME?

  3. EdEN says:

    A great list overall, and I’m sure there are a lot of games not included.

    @Bailey: If Layton 3DS sells great, it will prompt Nintendo and Capcom to release the crossover here. On that note, I also want a new Ace Attorney game on 3DS.

  4. Richard says:

    @ Bailey: Good comparison, and Nintendo meets Spore is my idea of a perfect game! 🙂 FreakForms (the original) is like Spore with a wackier sense of humor. It’s like Spore meets Yoshi’s Island. I loved Spore’s creation tools, but the game left me a bit cold. Besides, you can’t build jet-propelled, mustachioed cement truck minotaurs in Spore.

    Paper Mario Sticker Star is what I’m looking forward to the most. Just can’t say no to a 2-d mustachioed plumber. His stache points are obviously over 9,000.

    Though, I’m excited about Professor Layton and Paper Mario, I was really hoping there would be a Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon release date by now.

  7. Richard says:

    @ Lord Lemmy: Unfortunately, Luigi’s Mansion has been delayed until the “first half” of 2013.

  8. Lord Lemmy says:

    @ Richard: Really?! That sucks… Meh, at least it’s probably to make it better. And I already have it pre-ordered too!
