The Nintendo 3DS has recently seen an upturn in its fortunes thanks to the release of some big game titles for the device. Now today Nintendo has announced its early 2012 release schedule for a variety of its consoles.

There is some good looking titles coming for the 3DS with Resident Evil Revelations coming on January 27th, and according to Eurogamer this coincides with the launch of the Circle Pad Pro add-on. The same month also sees CRUSH 3D from Sega and 3D Game Collection from Mastertronic. One month later will see the release of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for the 3DS.

The likes of Mario Tennis and Luigi’s Mansion 2 only get 2012 release time frames and nothing more specific. The previous DS model lineup is not forgotten with Antipole, Doodle Fie, and Hidden Object Show promised for next month.

It may be getting replaced next year by a new model but the Wii also has some good titles to look forward to. January sees the release of Boom Street with The Last Story coming a month later. Mario Party 9 lands on the console in March along with PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond.

Sometime during the first quarter of next year Winter Sports 2012 will become available along with We Sing Pop. Other Wii newbie’s include Pandora’s Tower, Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise, and We Sing 80′s.

DS owners in Europe will surprisingly be getting Inazuma Eleven 2, but Nintendo hasn’t given any details of Animal Crossing, Paper Mario or Monster Hunter Tri G though. Use the link for the full list of games. Is there anything that you like the look of?
