Nintendo Reveals The 2012’s 3DS Release Schedule, Look For Kid Icarus, Tekken and MGS 3D This Winter

The 3DS is finally get a shot of games. Nintendo’s next-gen 3D gaming handheld has so far not seen the sort of success as its predecessors. It’s not a mystery why, though. There aren’t many games worth buying. But that’s sort of slated to change early next year.

Nintendo just issued a press release detailing the release schedule of upcoming 3DS games. The entire list is after the jump but Kid Icarus: Uprising is the only Nintendo title on the list. Others like Luigi’s Mansion 2 apparently isn’t ready despite being a big part of Nintendo’s showing at E3 last June. Other highlights include Resident Evil Revelations (Feb. 7), Metal Gear Solid 3D (Q1), and Tekken 3D Prime Edition (February). Will these titles cause the 3DS to instant skyrocket to success? Probably not, but gamers will finally have something other than Zelda and Mario Kart to play.
