This morning Nintendo Australia has dated and announced windows for a bunch of Nintendo 3DS titles for 2012 and beyond. The big one though is the release date for Paper Mario: Sticker Star which is set to be released on the 8th of December. That’s around the same time date (even before with time zones) as Japan and Europe. Nintendo America get it a month earlier however.
As the name suggests Paper Mario: Sticker Star introduces stickers into the Paper Mario world. Stickers are found all around the game world and can be peeled off and applied to characters to boost powers or give special moves. You’ll even be able make stickers from items found in game. ‘Paper Mario’ was one of the original titles announced alongside the Nintendo 3DS over two years ago, it’s great to finally have a date.
So what else is coming?
The White Nintendo 3DS XL is also coming to Australia and it will have Mario Kart 7 pre-installed on the SD card. That’s out on December 6th.
Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique will also be out on November 17th as well and will be available like Paper Mario: Sticker Star from retail and the eShop. Nintendo Australia has also confirmed that we’ll be getting Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (from them) before March 2013 and that Virtue’s Last Reward and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked will also be out this year.
Nintendo has confrmed a bunch of eShop titles that will be making their way here before the end of the year. For November we’ll be getting Pokedex Pro 3D (November 8th), Fallblox, Hydroventure: Spin Cycle and Air Porter. For December we have Denpa Men: They Came by Wave and Nano Assault EX.
Phew. Who’s buying what then?
