Nintendo announces Wii U and Nintendo 3DS software line-up for early 2013
Following the release of Wii U Nintendo looks ahead at what new software is on the horizon for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL players to enjoy this Christmas, into the new year and beyond. With a diverse range of games for both platforms soon to launch there will be something for every Nintendo 3DS and Wii U owner to enjoy.
Those Wii U players who just want to carry on the party season into 2013 can do so with SiNG PARTY which launches on 19th January 2013. SiNG PARTY is an all-new singing and dancing game that lets singers face the crowd and will create an instant party in your living room thanks to the Wii U GamePad. Players will be able to continue their Wii U experience as they take on the role of ace cop Chase McCain and use a mixture of parkour skills, special undercover disguises and the unique functionality of the Wii U GamePad to investigate a huge open world as LEGO City: Undercover makes its way to Australia and New Zealand in early 2013. If you want to take a sneak peak into Q2 then only one word is needed….Pikmin. Pikmin 3 is on its way to Wii U in Q2 2013, so keep an eye out for more news in the near future.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS simultaneously, in March 2013. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the most expansive Monster Hunter yet, with more than 2000 new weapons and pieces of armour to collect as well as many new monsters to hunt. With the Wii U version supporting 1080p Full HD and online multiplayer and the Nintendo 3DS version utilising 3D visuals and providing local multiplayer there will be a unique and stunning world for players familiar with the series or new to it to explore and enjoy. Players who own a copy of each version can even carry their save data from one version to the other and vice versa.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star launched at the start of this month for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL players to enjoy before Christmas. Fans won’t have to wait too long before Mario’s brother Luigi makes an appearance as in March 2013 Luigi’s Mansion 2 will make its debut. It’s up to Luigi, armed with his ghost-grabbing Poltergust 5000 vacuum cleaner, to explore a number of spooky mansions and capture all types of ghosts that run amok. These ghosts won’t give up without a fight though and there are some fiendish puzzles to solve along the way.
Taking a sneak peak into Q2, two games which have proved popular in Japan are making their way over to Australia and New Zealand. Animal Crossing (Temp name) for Nintendo 3DS and Fire Emblem: Awakening will be launching in Australia and New Zealand in Q2 2013, so continue to keep an eye out as more details on these games will be revealed.
