    Today Kotaku posted the rest if this years 2012 line up for NDS, DSi, 3DS & eShop. They failed to say it what region though.

    A lot of the dates are just confirmations of what we already know, but there are a few other bits like Luigi's Mansion 3DS won't be out at all, CastleVania is missing and a confirmation that Nintendo's excellent WiiWare game Fluidity is getting a eShop sequel.

    Note: F#$@ Activision for bringing back Bratz and F#$@ Ubisoft for more Imagine games...I thought that series was dead.

    Zero's Escape and Layton are the only games that looks good to me.

    Epic Mickey might catch my eye but overall its an poor list.

    What is Nightsky?
    I'm an amature astronomer so I am hoping this is some kind of sky map... and wow a lot of these games sound like they are going to suck.

    Yeah and there are still unannounced stuff getting revealed in autumn according to Nintendo.

    I can't believe we're getting Mystical Ninja on the eShop, I'm getting it just to support the series, even though it's the localized gameboy game that sucked.
    I'm really hoping that Mystical Ninja isn't dead and that Konami will surprise us in the future.

    Also does anyone remember the Contra 5 3DS teaser?
    They haven't mentioned anything about it since they first revealed the project.

    I died a little on the inside when I saw this. The Transformers games couldn't get any worse...


    A pretty awesome indie platformer.

    The Adventure Time game is pretty solid looking. Normally I'd pirate it but A) I hate playing on my current DS since it's so shitty and B) the special edition looks great. If it wasn't for me needing cash for so much other shit currently I'd probably buy a cheap 3DS and the collector's edition of that game. Then pirate the DS one.

    The game itself looks like a 7/10 but for fans like me I'm sure it'll be a 8.

    I wish it would have voice acting though.

    Paper Mario, Zero's Escape, Layton, Harvest Moon, Code of princess(Huge fan of guardian heroes), Epic Mickey, and Castlevania are all games I'm looking forward too.
    I just hope Castlevania doesn't miss the 2012 window

    Zero Escape will be a day-one purchase for me.

    The list isn't super strong, but hopefully it's just because the WiiU launch is so close (eg they need to split work between 3DS and WiiU).

    I wish Aksys gave more Jake Hunter ports to the DS.

    Underrated game IMO

    Wario Land 2 will get some unsung praise from me, am happy to see we are getting small trickles of games over the year rather than a clusterfuck of titles

    It is a weak line up. Hope to see more than this. But on that list I'll take a closer look on these:
