While Paper Mario has a release date in USA, Nintendo Europe still hasnt announced any release date... worst, they still call it Paper Mario, with tentative title. :eek:
Did I missed something ? When NoE is supposed to tell us a release date ? I mean, it will be barely release in less than 2 months in USA..

Better not be. It's the next 3DS game I plan on getting, and aside from Luigi's Mansion, the only upcoming 3DS game I'm interested in.

I can understand that Nintendo doesn't want to steal the thunder from the Wii U, but from an EU perspective Vita does actually have a more interesting Fall lineup than 3DS with games like AC3 Liberation, LBP, NFS:MW, PS All-Stars, Fifa and CoD. Could be interesting to see if Nintendos strategy backfires and the handheld sales situation (slightly) changes.

Shadow Dragon's December release date was announced early October-ish, so there's still hope!

You would think that Nintendo doesn't want to give Vita too much breathing room on christmas market but 3DS Fall lineup isn't all that convincing...

In fairness, Layton will probably sell more than Paper Mario in the EU.

Sticker Star had better come over, though.

Layton to me seems like a game that mostly sells to the already installed userbase though while Paper Mario can be a true system seller. Layton is great, don't get me wrong, but I can't see many people buying a 3DS just because of that.

Im still wondering if Nintendo of Europe will release their line up, like Nintendo America did. You know, schedule with release dates for retail and eshop games.

I'm not sure how interested I am any more after learning more about how it's essentially being de-RPGified.

So, I sent a mail to Nintendo, but usual answer:
Thank you for your email.


Nintendo has no official announcement about your query at this time.

So, I'm in Europe with a US 3DS. Can I still download from the US eShop? I was looking forward to playing this on the plane ride back :(

No Luigi's Mansion in 2012 saddened me but I could deal with it as Paper Mario was still coming out.

But if this doesn't make 2012 either then I'll be pretty annoyed :/ think it's because it's such a text heavy game and there's more languages to translate to? I just don't see any reasoning to delay it so far beyond US release, but then again as a PAL person I'm fairly used to it by now.

NoE is probably in total chaos mode right now with all the localizations required for the Wii U titles and then having to localize Layton and Paper Mario in 5 languages at the same time is surely producing some sweat on their brows right now.

Maybe but there's just no excuse. I mean, Paper Mario is the only first party game on 3DS this holidays.

Clearly they are delaying Sticker Star and bringing the totally not niche Fire Emblem forward to the end of this year as the big Christmas game for mega sales with an upcoming announcement soon, ah a man can dream.
Seriously though i've had enough Mario on the 3DS in the last 12 months, I can't actually bring myself to be upset if this news were true, even so I expect it's coming otherwise we're left with something in the region of bugger all for the 3DS.

At least 2013 should be a great year for the 3DS huh?

Layton, Epic Mickey, Devil Survivor and VLR are the only retail games I shall be buying on 3DS for the end of the year.

I hope it's not. I'd really like to buy Layton in October with Extreme Escape, and Paper mario and Epic Mickey in November...

Same for me. But its kinda stupid to delay those games to make 2013 artificially looking good.

Devil survivor too has no release date yet...neither Overclocked or DS2.
