The lights are on
Nintendo revealed in an investor relations briefing today that the 3DS Mario Golf title in the works at Camelot has been pushed back to 2014. Mario Golf World Tour was originally slated for this summer, but Nintendo has moved its release into a 2014 3DS release schedule that needs the help more than the strong near-term calendar.
“Nintendo 3DS has been gaining momentum since March of this year due to our back-to-back releases of key titles," said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in the presentation. "I think we have been able to take advantage of Nintendo’s unique position of being able to provide markets with a strong first-party software lineup to energize its hardware sales. Some worry that an intensive release pace this year might result in a poor first-party software lineup next year. However, our internal software development teams are now at a stage where we can expect software launches without too many intervals. We still have many unannounced game titles. Therefore, we expect to release a sufficient number of first-party titles for the platform next year as well.”
The slide shown above details the 3DS first-party lineup for the next year or so, and this year looks to end strong with Mario & Luigi, Pokemon, and Zelda all shipping for the system. Next year, 3DS owners can look forward to Yoshi’s New Island, the newly delayed Mario Golf: World Tour, and the just-announced Super Smash Bros.

At least we get Link Between Worlds!
NO!!! Looks like I'm waiting till 2014 to get a WIIU.
wooowwwwwww nintendo. whatever I just want the new pokemon
You know this really doesn't up set me, it would if it was the new Zelda game though.
Oh, well. I'm not much of a fan of sports games anyway.
can a nugga get a WiiU release...jeez it doesnt always have to be one or the other, Nintendo....you CAN release a game on both consoles..
Why Why didn't Nintendo just release the damn Wii U this holiday season instead? Hell, all the games are finally coming out..... a year later. Pretty disappointed with them. I guess the good news is there will be games haha
How about something we want? I'm all for a 3D remake but I won't pay 40 bucks, I'm not all that crazy about Animal Crossing and Mystery Dungeon gets pretty boring and repetitive after a while.
I thought 2013 was going to be really really great by now but it looks like I have to wait until next year, and most likely I'll be be saying this next year.
It's good to see the lineup though.
WOAH! WHY! but still, Nintendo will have another awesome game releases next year!
Well, that sucks.
Nintendo looks like most of their games will be released in October. I think the biggest release will be the new Pokemon games and many people will now have to buy a 3DS to play it. Smart play by Nintendo.
