These Games Will Hit Nintendo Systems In Europe This Year

By Ishaan . August 17, 2011 . 9:00am

Nintendo of Europe just shot out a release list for the remainder of the year. Note that the list isn’t exhaustive and appears to be missing games like Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar and Rune Factory 3, which were due out in September, last we heard.


Oh, and I suppose we should mention that The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower are officially confirmed for a 2012 European release as well. They’re at the very bottom of the list.


Read more stories about & & & & on Siliconera.

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Wait… wait… WHAT DO I SEE THERE!? The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower!?

  • Croix

    Zelda, Layton, Layton-esque titles, and RPGs. Looking good, NoE.

  • TempestTwin

    Just when I thought Skyward Sword, Kirby’s Advnture Wii and XenoBlade was the last wii games I would be getting, they announce The last Story and Pandoras Tower. Looks like the wii has more life in it then I thought it did.

    • Shinji Kazuya

      My thoughts exactly.

  • Go Vacation! in autumn already. Good, good!
    Once NoE is done with LS and PT, I wonder what they’ll do next. I hear there’s some good norse mythology sword game.

    On the not so bright side:
    Still no Inazuma Eleven 2? I though there were rumors of a release in early 2012.

  • Suppa Man

    Wow….seriously? Europe gets all the good RPGs? No love for America :(

    • Guest

      maybe if it was a FPS RPG…

    • SirRichard

      We aren’t getting the Devil Survivor games!

      Not quite sure if that’s an even trade, but it’s something!

      • landlock

        Well you should have already played the “meat” of the game on the DS the extras are nice but there’s no hurry. Ghostlight are bound to do it sooner or later.

        Of course we’ll be playing a imported version of devil survivor 2 by then but still.

        •  Well, we would have if we had got the first game at all.

      • AzureNova

        No. -_-

      • It shouldn’t be an even trade.  1st party is supposed to go full force in support, NoA isn’t doing their job in providing entertainment for RPG fans when they clearly have the games.

  • NOA would be lucky to even have HALF of what NOE is offering to all platforms

  • No Devil Survivor Overclock this year for Europe? Kill me now, I lost interest in the game. I guess I’ll go play Xenoblade :P

    • FlamingSausage

      Ghostlight is still considering to localize it, so keep your thumbs up.

  • FX102A

    Ace Combat 3D
    Professor Layton
    Last Story
    Pandora’s Tower
    LoZ Skyward Sword
    Super Mario 3D Land
    Mario Kart 7
    Starfox 64 3D
    Tales of the Abyss 3D
    Metroid II 3D

    Looks like I’ll be giving my credit card a damn good workout these next few months.

    Might see what Dr Lautrec has to offer.

    Xenoblade should have arrived by the time I get back from my weekend wedding in Austria, but I bet it won’t fit in my mailbox and I’ll have to pick it up Tuesday morning. Damn my delivery office for midday closing times.

    • Suicunesol

      Sorry to disappoint you, but I don’t think Metroid II is going to be a 3D classic. It’ll just be a VC re-release.

  • FlamingSausage

    Why is Tales of the Abyss on Q4? I thought it was announced to release November 10th in Europe and Australia?

    • LynxAmali

      Is that not Q4?

      • FlamingSausage

        Yeah I know, I just thought it should be listed with the exact release date. Could be a typo, though.

        • or they could have changed the release date. Ghostlight did it with Agarest Zero due to manufacture issue.

  • Guest

    DS list is non existent, nothing on 3DS that makes me want to buy the handheld, and only thing on Wii thats good is Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora’s Tower which the U.S. still doesn’t have a solid confirmation on yet…

  • Darkrise

    Wow… Last Story AND Pandora’s Tower? Seriously wth is NOA doing…

    • Don’t forget they got Xenoblade too….><

      • AzureNova

        I’d honestly rather have Last Story and Pandora’s Tower instead.

    • Bakuryukun

      This isn’t even the first time that NoA has pulled this crap.

      We didn’t get Mother (Earthbound 0) or Final Fantay II/III for the NES.

      We didn’t get Tales of Phantasia, Terranigma, or Seiken Densetsu 3 for SNES.

      We didn’t get Mother 3 on GBA.

      • Ryos

        I have that quote at work and unfortunately, it seems like Reggie abides by that quote too. :(

    • You know something if they will not release them here i mean in north america i will Hack my wii and download the games, thats what you want NOA? :@ 

  • La Mulana, cool title.

  • SirRichard

    Holy crap, I didn’t think November could get MORE packed. Every system has a big-seller, all around the middle of the month, and then there’s all the multiplatform stuff. Better start picking and choosing now, I guess…

    And also, good on ya, Nintendo of Europe, it’s encouraging to see The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower listed. You legends.

  • Disney Universe? I think I’ve heard of it once

  • No release date for Paper Mario 3DS and Animal Crossing 3DS yet, huh?

    Nintendo has to spare everybody’s wallets a little, eh? ;)

  • fanoultimate

    Thanks goodness, the 3ds is finally getting some games… although looks like Nintendo is comming again with the craptastic idea of putting “3ds” on the titles… same happened with Nintendo 64, same happened with DS

    • Yeah, it’s real creative slapping “3DS” on the end of games isn’t it? So clever.

      Although Mario Kart is called Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS. That’s just baffling, considering they’ve never numbered the games before.

  • We all these anticipated games it looks like the wii is gonna go out with a bang!

  • The news of Pandora’s Tower coming in English has made my day with big happiness!
    I think I’m one of the fewest people who wants Pandora’s Tower more than both Xenoblade and The Last Story.

    I don’t see Shinobi 3DS on the list, it seems NoE will not get it.

    • You’re absolutely not alone!! I want Pandora’s Tower more than Xenoblade and TLS too!! Even though I still want the latter ones badly XD

  • I’m sad NoA doesn’t treat me this good.

  • AzureNova

    Sigh, looks like I might have to import a Wii along with Last Story and Pandora’s Tower. NoA, know that at the moment I am very dissapoint. <— Not a typo)

    • Import the games but don’t import the hardware. Make your current system
      region free instead. All you need is an SD card and some free software.

  • Pretty good lineup: Xenoblade, the new Zelda, Tales of the Abyss, The Last Story and the Pandora’s Tower are must have. Xenoblade bundle was just shipped! ;)~

  • Happy Feet 2
    What on earth did I miss?!

  • Phoenix_Apollo

    Of course they’re getting Pandora’s Tower. Of course they are.

  • Learii

    are these also for NA or no?

    • Ryos

      Unless Nintendo of Europe took over Nintendo of America (and these days, that’d be great!), it’s just those lucky Europeans…

  • Good news, I just hope Nintendo keeps the japanese track for TLS & Pandora’s Tower, like Xenoblade !! :)

  • 2012 for TLS and Pandora’s Tower? I guess I can wait a little longer…
