Things have finally become a bit more clear as to what Nintendo’s upcoming software line-up will look like.  Today the company has issued release date  information on it’s upcoming titles in the first quarter. 

Wii U:

Of note for Nintendo’s newest console is Lego City Undercover dated for March 18th.  Developed by TT Fusion and published by Nintendo, it’s a sandbox style crime drama set in the Lego universe.  A kid-friendly alternative to the Grand Theft Auto series, players take on the role of Chase McCain as he hunts down the evil doers of his town. 

Also of note for the Wii U is Aliens: Colonial Marines still being listed as Q1, and Rayman Legends said to be released on February 26th.

3DS:

The 3DS has a few gems to look forward to in the coming months.  Of note are:

  • Fire Emblem Awakening (February 4th)
  • Brain Age: Concentration Training  (February 10th)
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed  (February 12th)
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate  (March 5th)
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate  (March 19th)
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity  (March 24th)
  • Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon  (March 24th)
  • Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins  (April 21st)

Via the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS, Capcom is releasing Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D sometime in Q1.  Also, players can download demos of the new Fire Emblem and Brain Age games on January 17th and January 24th respectivly. 

 Dark Moon

Perhaps most exciting (to me at least) is that Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is about two months away.  Nintendo has deprived us of the sequel to Luigi’s GameCube launch title for entirely too long.  But who cares what I think?  Tell us below which titles you are excited for.  And keep checking Only Single Player for updates on all of Nintendo’s upcoming titles.

Jeff Scott
A life long Nintendo fan and lover of all things games, Jeff Scott, couldn't be more excited to be writing for OnlySP. When he isn't working the dreaded 9 to 5, he enjoys catching up on movies, great television, and oh yeah - family time when he can fit it in (kidding, honey!). He hopes to blossom from occasional to full time writer at some point. If he doesn't embarrass himself on this site first...

  1. wow.. the wii u a zero-titles-machine.. first they released the 3ds one whole year too early so it pretty much was useful as a brick (as a matter of fact: still is to this day) and then they released the wii u with JUST THE SAME NOTHINGNESS for the willing users. i find their approach a little bit crappy, to be honest. just to be the first ones to release new hardware they are releasing their stuff without any supplemental software, games or other stuff. talk about audacity of hype. and i thought sony and microsoft screwed up this gen.
