This Is Nintendo of Europe’s Release List For The Year

By Ishaan . July 1, 2011 . 1:10am

Nintendo of Europe just put out a release list for upcoming games for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi for the remainder of the year. Amongst the releases mentioned are some interesting points of note:


  • 3D Classics Xevious will release in Europe this July.

  • Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar is slated for September.

  • Star Fox 64 3D is also slated for September. Europe gets it two days before U.S.


You can find the full list below. Keep in mind that it isn’t all-conclusive. Rising Star Games also picked up Rune Factory 3, although that game doesn’t have a release date.

    Sigh, this 3DS release list looks pretty barren overall. Should I try my luck with Doctor Lautrec?

      Europe has Tales of Abyss and One Piece coming to 3DS in November. Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Kid Icarus, Dr Lautrec, MGS3: Snake Eater and StarFox 64 are of course, also planned for this year in Europe.Pretty beefy line up if you ask me.

        Super Mario 3D, Mario Kart 2D and Kid Icarus are all just vaguely floating around at the end of year, we don’t even fully know if we’ll get the Marios this year and at E3 everyone only talks about American release dates. Snake Eater 3D takes a bit of a hit when you remember it’s going up against a HD variant in the MGS Collection, too.

        I’ll eat my hat if Namco will actually give us Tales of the Abyss this year, and One Piece depends on whether or not you like the show. All in all, it’s a pretty flimsy line-up that solely depends on Nintendo getting their act together. Which, if the past is any indication, isn’t very likely.

          Yeah I won’t be getting MGS3 on 3DS. I’ll be picking up the HD Collection. But the title is still there for those who don’t own a PS3 or 360. It was confirmed that Tales of Abyss will come out on the 10th of November in Europe yesterday. Personally, Ill be picking up all the games I mentioned in my previous post. For me the line up is strong enough considering its the 3DS’ first year. Next year is when things will get a lot more serious. After all, Vita is coming out very soon.

          Abyss has been confirmed for November 10. Although, of course, a delay is not out of the question.

          But that’s more than four months from now. I was thinking of getting something, you know, a bit sooner than that.

  • What about Professor Layton and the Last Specter? 

    • Probably in Q4 as part of their christmas lineup.

      The topic title and description seem to be wrong, as all lists lack the Q4 months.

  • SirRichard

    I’m not optimistic about the 3DS line-up, honestly. Nintendo trying to help the third-parties get a foothold has really shot the thing in the foot a bit, and it still doesn’t have much of interest. 

    Things will turn around when we hit that glorious streak of Kid Icarus and Nintendo’s E3 announcements, to be sure, but until then it’s not a very promising line-up.

    NOE at the rescue of nintendo honor.

  • As of right now it seems we are getting more of 3DS, and Kirby on Wii. Seems far to me! Unless the winter months shows something different.

  • Anybody else find this disappointing? I do see a few of quality quality titles on the list, but… not too many…

  • What about Rhythm Tengoku Wii? It isn’t coming out here? :o

  • Glad to see Dr Lautrec is still on schedule – I’m looking forward to hearing more about that game.
