Which OTHER games are you looking forward to in 2011?


Most of us are eagerly anticipating the arrival of Zelda and Mario (on foot and kart) as the Holidays approach. Are any less-discussed 2011 games on your radar? I have a very short list, all on DS or 3DS, and all but one come with a big IF….

Professor Layton and the Last Specter (Oct. 17) — This one’s an instant buy for me.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights (Dec. 6) — If it’s at least half as entertaining as Professor Layton, I’m aboard.

Pokemon Rumble Blast (Oct. 24) — The previews look fun. I’m hoping it’s got some depth.

The Adventures of TinTin (Dec. 6) Though it’s a long shot, I hope this one bucks the movie game curse while capturing the fun of the books.

Sonic Generations (?) If it actually gets released before 2012, this could be the Sonic game we’ve been waiting for since the 16 bit days.

How about you? Are you planning to purchase any titles without plumbers or rupees for your Wii, DS or 3DS in 2011?


  1. Let’s see….

    Batman: Arkham Asylum
    Professor Layton and the Last Specter
    Maybe Uncharted 3.
    Kirby’s Return to Dreamland
    Possibly a Pokemon title, I’m thinking Pokemon White.
    And maybe Resident Evil 4.

    So yeah, there’s my list…at least what I can think of.

  2. Kirby’s Return to Dreamland… Huh, pretty sure that’s it.. (besides the Zelda/Mario’s)

  3. Sonic Generations is coming out November 1st in NA, and on the 3rd and 4th elsewhere. I hope it is enough of a success to have it become a launch title for the WiiU, because after playing (and liking) Sonic Colors, I would like to try Generations as well.

  4. Skyrim, BF3, Kingdoms of Amalur:Reconing (at least i think that’s the name of it).

  5. @ GameCollector44:

    Holy crud, I forgot Layton was coming out this week!!! Thanks–I’ve updated the post accordingly!

  6. Batman Arkham City
    Uncharted 3
    Skyward Sword
    Alines game for the DS
    Going to import Xenoblades

  7. Honestly, I tried the Sonic Generations demo, and I can say one thing: Classic Sonic levels are likely going to be most awesome.

  8. Kirby’s Return to Dreamland all the way!! SO excited!! 😀

  9. BF3
    Batman: AC
    Old Republic
    want to play Fallout: Vegas

    and prob check out modern warfare 3

    …I think that’s it?

    Also, I believe that Generations’ 3DS version is launching in 2012.

  17. Cave Story!!! 😀

  18. 1) UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception.
    2) BATMAN: Arkham City.
    3) ZELDA: Skyward Sword.
    4) MW3 or BF3 (depending on the better single player, I’ll have Uncharted 3 for multiplayer)
    5) KIRBY’s Return to Dreamland

  19. @Sal

    You are going to wait for long time for the Grinder.

    There were rumours that the game was canned.

  20. Professor Layton!!!!! I still like my DSi better than my 3DS, and this is the last game.

    Oh, and I’ll be more excited about Skyward Sword after I beat Layton.

  21. Checked into Pokemon Rumble Blast, pretty sure that’s gonna be a good one. 🙂 Though I do like me some action RPG’s!

  22. there is only skyrim

  23. Kirby: Return to Dreamland
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Skyward Sword
    Mario Kart 7
    Animal Crossing
    Luigi’s Mansion
    Paper Mario

  24. Well, on Nintendo systems I was hoping to get Xenoblade Chronicles, which has the highest critic score of all games right now for the Wii… But, it seems like Nintendo doesn’t want my money, because there are no plans to bringing it into the U.S.! Oh, and I’m interested in Kirby: Mass Attack.

    Other than that, I only want Halo: 10th Anniversary Edition for 2011.

    NOW, for 2012, however, I am really looking forward to Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2, but that’s another year…

  25. I can’t believe no one has mentioned this so far: Rhythm Heaven for Wii, people!
