By Spencer . July 28, 2011 . 1:29am

Eager to bring Nintendo fans to the 3DS, Nintendo’s upcoming first party line up is packed with familiar franchises. Star Fox 64 will come out on September 9 in North America. Super Mario 3D Land will follow in November and Mario Kart 7 will race into stores this December. Kid Icarus: Uprising has a vague "holiday season" release window.


Here’s Nintendo’s first party 3DS lineup in pictures.

  • I’ll be serious.

    Because of the order the title is in, I thought there was going to be a 3D Classic of Super Mario Land for the Gameboy available in November.

  • malek86

    Super Mario Land 3D for me!

    And then something from the third parties, hopefully.

  • That muscle dude with the huge blade creeps me out. Well, in the context of a Kid Icarus game at least.

    • puchinri

      Lol, I had to check again that it was for Kid Icarus. (But I like his look~.)

  •  Super Mario Land?! Don’t tease me like that! It’s Super Mario 3D, sadly, nothing to do with the Land series.

    • mario54671

      No, it’s actually called “Super Mario 3D Land.”  Super Mario 3D was the tentative title.

    • Wario basically hijacked that series (Wario Land was Land 3).  I would like to see what Mario does in this series in the meantime, I demand another game set in Sarasaland very least.

      • Code

        Wario hijacked it all! Neither me or Wario have any regrets though.

  • puchinri

    So. Frickin. Excited. Ugh, and with that price cut, I just have to get a 3DS. 
    Why you so good at taking my moneyz Ninty? ;u;

    • Exkaiser

      They’ve had thirty years of practice, that’s why!

      • puchinri

        Lol, good point!

  • Mario Kart 7 for December, let us hope it doesnt see an unfortunate delay into the next year. I hope they have a listing of their third party games and release dates for this winter too?

  • NTyron52

    Well, my Nintendo DS doesn’t work anymore unfortunately… I better buy this one then. I’m looking forward for these games so far, especially Kid Icarus. Also, am I seeing an underwater level in this new Mario Kart? That’s some pretty neat stuff!

    • Exkaiser

      Yep, one of the gimmicks of the new Mario Kart is that there are now underwater segments in some levels where the carts sprout propellers to navigate.

      It’s also got a pretty neat-looking kart customization system.

    • Even if your Nintendo DS did work, you would still need to purchase a 3DS to play these games. :P

      • NTyron52

        Yeah I know that… I’m just saying I’ll buy this game when I buy my 3DS! :)

  • Great now I need a job just great.

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Star Fox 64, Super Mario Land 3D, and Mario Kart 7 all come out this fall….
    My poor wallet……

    • kylehyde

      I know how you feel. In my case the DS is going to secure that I won’t have some extra cash for the fall and holiday season.

  • Zonic505

    I think Nintendo’s calling it Super Mario 3D Land, not Land 3D. Weird, I know.

    But awesome, this is looking like I’ll be asking for a good amount of games for Xmas.

  • Thanks Nintendo. Now, I’ll spend money later on to buy those games on the 3DS. Mario games were all I ever ask for on this system mainly. Good thing it isn’t released in September/October. Disgaea 4, Kirby Mass Attack, Solarobo, and Pokemon Rumble Blast comes out in those upcoming Months. Not to mention, I have to import Xillia. I’m not quite sure about Kirby: Return to Dreamland release date though. Supposedly, it’s released around the fourth quarter of 2011.

    Isn’t Zelda Skyward sword supposed to be released around that time too? What I finally need is that announcement to Paper Mario 3DS and Luigi Mansion 2. See, I’m not trying to be rude or anything, but Nintendo still gets a quarter of my wallet when they release what they’re known for.

  • Rarutos

    Super Mario 3D Land is such an odd name! Also, it’s odd to see Nintendo numbering Mario Kart like that. :o

    Odd, but interesting… I was expecting Super Mario 3D Land to be called Super Mario Dimensions or something, and Mario Kart 7 to be Mario Kart… 3D.

  • It has Land in the title, I expect crazy worlds and enemies now.

    Mario Kart 7 is such an out of place name.  I like it more than just slapping “3D” in the title… I know I’ll call it Mario Kart Seven.  At least it sounds fancy.

  • They’re honestly not calling it Mario Kart 7 are they?
