Nintendo 3DS:

Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone! (Oct. 1) (Trailer)– Users of any artistic skill level can learn painting and drawing techniques that can be applied to real-life art projects, with optional, additional lessons available for purchase. The game also lets users share and download certain game content via SpotPass.

Crosswords Plus (Oct. 1) (Trailer) – More than 1,000 professionally designed crossword puzzles will challenge players at any skill level. They can also receive and share bonus puzzles via StreetPass or connect their Nintendo 3DS to the Internet to receive free additional puzzles via SpotPass. The game also includes other game play modes such as Wordsearch, Anagrams and the new Word of the Day.

Sparkle Snapshots 3D (Oct. 18) – Launching exclusively in the Nintendo eShop, this downloadable game is a fun photography application that lets you personalize your 2D photos by adding 3D layers of stickers, ribbons, pens and other effects. Users can then share creations wirelessly with friends or transfer them to an SD card and email them.

Skylanders Giants from Activision Publishing, Inc. (Oct. 21) – Fans can look forward to more than 20 new inter-action figures to collect, including Giants that are twice the size of regular Skylanders and new LightCore Skylanders that light up both in the game and in real life when they are placed on the Portal of Power.

Style Savvy: Trendsetters (Oct. 22) (Trailer) – Players can run their very own full-scale fashion shop and spark a fashion revolution by helping customers keep up with current trends, buying new clothes for their customizable store and sharing their creations with their friends online.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (Oct. 28) (Trailer)– Experienced fans and newcomers to the Professor Layton series can solve dozens of fascinating puzzles as they work their way through a new mystery storyline. Players can even download one additional puzzle per day for 365 days, starting on game launch day, at no additional charge.

Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! (Nov. 5) – Players can create their own creatures and use them to explore a planet that they customize. Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! contains new features not found in the original downloadable title, such as dungeons to explore, enhanced creating capabilities with more parts to choose from and new special powers that can be used to further personalize the creatures. The game also features Download Play, which allows players to share the creative experience with friends who do not have a copy of the game.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star (Nov. 11) – Nintendo’s classic Paper Mario franchise gets a fresh 3D look in its hand-held debut. Stickers are the backbone of Mario’s newest adventure in which players use stickers found in the game to not only win battles, but to solve puzzles as well.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

aw, looking at the 3rd party line-up, I guess its impossible for Atlus to announce Etrian Odyssey IV for 2012. I really want the game this year *sigh* guess we'll just have to wait next year along with Soul Hackers.

Cave Story? Is that the 3DS retail title going to the eShop, or have the ported the original game to 3DS natively?

I'm kind of interested in Style Savvy. I always spend a long time on character customization in games that have them, heh. It's an eShop release, so hopefully it will be priced reasonably, but this is a Nintendo release, soooo ... hmm.

I wonder whether Dark Moon will be delayed in PAL regions as well, since we already got both Art Academy and Freakyforms.
Really? NOA why you suck :(

Iwata is right to be worried about 3DS outside Japan, man that lineup is thin. (although 2 Mario games will certainly still help, don't know how much of an impact Pokemon will have on 3DS)

I don't understand Nintendo, you have the perfect opportunity to release Luigi's Mansion around Halloween, did something happen?

Oh well, at least we get Paper mario early :\

Its just a partial list - not all titles are included. Would suck if Castlevania wasnt a 2012 title.

With a weak lineup like this for an entire year, I guess both handhelds deserve to fail. WTF are Sony and Nintendo doing?

Ugh at no LM until 2013. Looking at that list, dare I say 3DS 2012's first half>fall lineup this year?

It's a partial list right? That's always the case with these first lists.

I'm kinda happy Luigi's Mansion got delayed. More money for Paper Mario, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, Castlevania, Epic Mickey and Devil Survivor Overclocked. Well, assuming Euro land will receive these titles at the end of the year as well.

Look for me on the local news, I'll be the guy arrested for trying to burn down a Nintendo exec's house.

Historically Nintendo has always struggled to support 2 systems. When the DS came along, the Gamecube died, when the Wii arrived the DS was left up to third parties, with the 3DS the Wii entered oblivion, and now the 3DS must struggle on while the WiiU has their attention.

Sony at least grew it's stables over the years to offer a fair glut of content on 2 systems at once (even though I'm expecting far more at Gamescom), I mean the backend of this year has LBP Vita, Battle Royale, and Sly Cooper on Vita.
