Nintendo Dates a Bunch of 3DS Games, Delays New "Luigi's Mansion"

The rest of 2012 is paved in portable games, from Paper Mario to Pokémon

Nintendo offered a loaded forecast for the rest of 2012, which includes a bunch of portable games for both Nintendo 3DS and DS. Some of the highlights include the aforementioned date for Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (October 28), as well as the date for Paper Mario: Sticker Star, which hits 3DS on November 11.

 

Unfortunately, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon isn't listed, because Mario's bro won't be hunting (and running from) ghosts until "the first half of 2013." Here's the full list of upcoming titles, including eShop releases.
