New ‘Paper Mario’ & ‘Professor Layton’ 3DS Games to Ignite Holiday Sales with Fall Release Dates
Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask will indeed hit the 3DS this fall, adding depth to the slim roster of games for Nintendo’s 3D handheld system.
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask will hit shelves first on Oct. 28, giving puzzle gamers a new adventure just in time for Halloween. This is one of the most rewarding Professor Layton games to buy yet. Nintendo will be giving gamers one new puzzle every day for 365 days, starting with the game’s release. These downloads will be free. If you hate how game publishers have been milking gamers for additional dollars through DLC, then you’ll definitely be thankful for this little bonus from Nintendo.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star hits shelves on Nov. 11 – just in time for the Holiday. Right now, it’s the leading first party game for the 3DS this holiday season. Perhaps Nintendo is offering some breathing room for gamers in the hopes that consumers flock to the Wii U.
Oddly enough, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon still doesn’t have a release date – even though it was announced last year. Hopefully, this means that the developers are making the game more robust and giving gamers more reason to actually use handheld console’s 3D functionality.
Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion from Disney Interactive is currently the last and biggest 3DS title to launch in advance of Black Friday. It hits shelves on Nov. 18. Skylanders fans will get to start collecting their Giants on Oct 21 when Skylanders Giants hits shelves.
