E3 2012: Take a closer look at the upcoming 3DS lineup

June 6, 2012

New Super Mario Bros. 2 includes two-player simultaneous okay throughout the full suite of levels, we learned during Wednesday night’s Nintendo 3DS event. The game, out August 19, also has that focus on coins talked about earlier this week.

We got a more in-depth look at Paper Mario: Sticker Star‘s sticker system, with powerups and special moves taking up space on your sheet. The game also scraps the experience system, with progression tied to completing quests and discovering secrets.

More notes:

  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate, by Spanish developer Mercury Steam, will hit this fall.
  • Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will be available in the eShop as well as retail when it releases later this year.
  • Monster Tale developer DreamRift’s Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion got some screen time, but not much in the way of new developments. Out this holiday.
