Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumor: Possible Release Dates for Animal Crossing 3D & Luigi's Mansion 2?

Tagged games:

 

Let's end the night with a few rumors, shall we?

Someone's uploaded a photo of Gamestop's current Nintendo 3DS schedule, or at least what they're claiming to be Gamestop's schedule (you can never tell these days).

According, to this supposed schedule Crush 3D is a GameStop exclusive, Mario Tennis is coming out on May 20th, Heroes of Ruin is coming out on July 1st, and Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion 2 are both coming out on August 2nd.

If you haven't gotten the hint by now, you should take this news with a large grain of salt.

Even if this is Gamestop's official schedule, it is by no means Nintendo's. I find it incredibly unlikely that Luigi's Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing are going to share a release date; if anything that's just an estimate Nintendo is giving Gamestop, mere placeholders.

I don't think the release dates of all of these titles will be revealed at GDC tomorrow, but some might. If not, we'll just have to wait and use these placeholder's as speculation for what quarter we should expect some of these games.

What do you all think about this? Nintendo does have a good size booth at GDC as we have seen. I can see Animal Crossing and Luigis Mansion coming out in the same month. Just not on the same day. I keep saying, this first half of the year is going to have some great games for Nintendo systems. Even the Wii is getting in on the action.

Both are just placeholder dates....If not, I better start saving up some money now because those are 2 of the titles on the 3DS I'm looking forward to the most.



I thought LM2 was going to be released early 2012.

Lots of videos, screenshots and news coming for both games. Luigi more than Animal Crossing. They have both been announced for a long time and in development for a hot minute now. So they both very well could be coming out soon. I am surprised that there was no word on Paper Mario 3D, but like the article says, GDC starts tomorrow!

I guess it just depends on what you consider early?

Well, just keep in mind, Nintendo do take their times with their games before releasing them. They generally have longer production times than other companies because they don't like doing the release day patches. :P

I'm predicting Animal Crossing will be October-November. I predict either Luigi's Mansion or Super Paper Mario coming out this June-July and the other one hitting this holiday season (probably Luigi's Mansion).

Of course then again, Nintendo don't generally need to veer away from the double releases because their fans do buy the games at some point if not on launch day, then during the holiday season. BUT, August is generally viewed as the last month of the summer dry spell and Nintendo does need to make sure they have a big title for the holidays.

Janurary can be early in the year. So cann March. Even June can cut it. August is not early by any conventional sense of the word.



Love and tolerate.

I like the way you think Salnax! But for some reason I think you are just planning the coming months game threads. :)

I know they do take forever. I remember how long I waited for the N64 Animal Crossing in America.........GC.

I'm kind of glad they have waited this long on Animal Crossing. I can justify borrowing my bf's 3DS for Super Mario 3D but we're both going to be playing the hell out of Animal Crossing when it comes out for the 3DS. Wide World was one of my favorite DS games.

Well now that you are done moving and your finances are back in order you can pick one up as well!
