It's good to have things to look forward to, and this year has a lot to look forward to. Just don't get too hyped, keep expectations low so you'll be even more amazed. And now here's my list.


Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

It's like a studio Ghibli Video Game, which is very high praise. I loved what I played at Comic Con so I know I'll get this eventually.


Fire Emblem Awakening

The demo sold me on the game. I like how the units interact more with the added features, and I've heard the support system has been greatly enhanced. Also, Marth and Roy are in this, as DLC. 


The Cave

An interesting game that looks like it could have a lot of replay value. Also, it's probably going to be hilarious from what the trailers have shown.


Etrain Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan

I haven't played that many dungeon crawlers, but this looks interesting. And it's from Atlus, so buying it is part of my plan to get Pers- I mean to support one of my favorite companies. No secondary motive involving the localization of a certain PSP remake at all. Jokes aside, I am looking forward to this.


Rayman Legends

I played the demo and loved it. And it looks great from the trailers anyway.


Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm

I've been waiting for this since I beat the campaign in Wings of Liberty, curse you climatic yet not fully resolving ending. Kerrigan's one of my favorite Starcraft characters anyway, so I'm hoping we get to see an in depth look at how she's dealt with everything that's happened. And there's the new units and all of those multiplayer changes.


Lego City: Undercover

Open world Lego game, need I repeat that. It looks like it'll have the Lego charm combined with great open world gameplay.


Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

The original Luigi's Mansion was one of the greatest Gamecube games. It's nice to see Luigi finally getting some respect. 


Soul Hackers

Another great Atlus game that I'm looking forward to. The gameplay seems good and the plot sounds interesting.


Disney Infinity

There's no way I'm getting every figure for this game, but I'm going to enjoy playing it with whatever ones I do get.


Pokemon Y

It's Pokemon, why shouldn't I be excited. I've enjoyed every mainline Pokemon game so far and this one won't be any different.


Animal Crossing: New Leaf

I love Animal Crossing, and this looks great. Being able to customize the town and swim are going to make this even better.


Lego Marvel Superheroes

I like Marvel Comics and the Lego Video Games, so this of course has my attention.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

I like Final Fantasy XIII *cue gasps of shock and angry mob* but whether or not I get this game depends on if I beat Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 before it comes out. The time system sounds very interesting and reminds me of Majora's Mask.


Pandora's Tower

A Zelda inspired game with relationship values of key importance, thank you XSeed for localizing this game. It's the Rainfall game that interested me the most.


Pikmin 3

I've been waiting for this game for so long that I'm worried it'll end up being delayed and delayed until it's canceled despite the various trailers.


Tales of Xillia

I'm looking forward to this, I loved Tales of Graces F and this looks just as great.


The Wonderful 101

This game seemed interesting from when it was announced with it's Pikmin like gameplay. And then I played a demo at Comic Con and liked it even more.


Hopefully this year game releases will be reasonably spread out instead of being clustered into the holiday sales season, though I doubt it will happen. Seriously, don't game developers realize how empty some months are, there's no way I'll get half of these games if the release schedule ends up like last years.
