Aside from unveiling the brand new Wii U console at E3 2011, Nintendo also reserved a key portion of their press conference to inform the world of the current software plans for the 3DS handheld system. We have a list of new games to show you now, as well as a teaser trailer showing brand new gameplay.
Most of you are looking forward to the release of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D next week starting from June 19th, but after E3 there’s probably a lot of other 3DS games that you’re looking forward to.
Upcoming new games unveiled at E3 include Super Mario 3DS, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 3DS, Luigis Mansion 2, Star Fox 64 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising. These are all developed by Nintendo of course, but there were far more titles on the way from third-party publishers.
These include Resident Evil Mercenaries (which you already knew about), Mario and Sonic at the 2012 Olympics, Ace Combat 3D, Tetris, Cave Story 3D, Resident Evil Revelations, Driver Renegade, Pacman & Galaga Dimensions, Tekken 3D and finally Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D which you also already know is coming.
That is a pretty strong lineup of both first party and third party titles you would have to agree. The big question is though, will the Sony PS Vita be able to compete with this or does Nintendo have the upper hand? We’ll be studying this aspect in greater detail soon. Check out the trailer below and then let us know your thoughts the new games on the way for the 3DS.
