Nintendo 3DS At Comic-Con 2012

As we know, the brand-new Nintendo 3DS XL will be on sale before we know it- are you planning on buying one? I’m not as I find the console too big for my teeny little hands and spindly fingers. The XL version of the Nintendo handheld (both DS and 3DS) I’ve never purchased but for those of you that have- you are in for a treat with the new games coming out.

It’s Comic-Con from the 12th to the 15th July 2012 and Nintendo have shown up with  the goods once again. There’s more games being showcased for the the 3DS than anything else but there’s still quite a hefty list for the three Nintendo consoles. From New Super Mario Bros 2 and Luigi’s Mansion 2: Dark Moon for the 3DS to Kirby’s Dream Collection for the Wii. There’s sadly no Wii U presence, so no Super Mario Bros Wii U to play for those of you attending the con. But without further ado, here’s both the press release fresh from Comic-Con and the list of games Nintendo shall be showing off.
