Nintendo 3DS game delayed to first half of next year, several other titles set for release on DS and 3DS before end of 2012.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for the Nintendo 3DS won't materialize in the Americas until the first half of 2013, Nintendo revealed today in an update on upcoming releases for handheld systems. The game's year-end release window, which was previously set for this year's holiday season, is survived by several other titles for the 3DS and DS.
Pokemon Black and White Version 2 will hit the Nintendo DS October 8. Skylanders Giants upsizes the series' staple "inter action figures" on October 21. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask will mark the puzzle-solving professor's first 3DS appearance on October 28. Mario returns to his 2.5-dimensional world in Paper Mario: Sticker Star on November 11, and highlights from the calendar close out with Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion on November 18.

That's kind of a bummer. I am really looking forward to this game. Even more so because I never played the first one. Oh well I guess at least I will be playing Paper Mario and Epic Mickey on the 3DS before the year is out. They'll give me some more to play while I wait for this. jnerd84.blogspot
Sheez! I still gotta finish Xenoblade and start/finish The Last Story.
Anyone know how far from the end I am starting from the Re-Entry point of the Mechon Factory? I know I still need to get the 5th Skill tree unlocked for all.
Sheez! I still gotta finish Xenoblade from the Mechon factory re-entry forward and start/finish The Last Story.
Anyone know how far from the ending I am on Xenoblade?
The only game I'll get for DS & 3DS for the remainder of the year are New Super Mario Bros. 2, Pokemon White 2, Code of Princess (releasing October 9th 2012), and Paper Mario: Sticker Star. As much as I am excited for each of Nintendo's offering, I just couldn't ignore Atlus first RPG offering.
I'm all for a stalling, since the first Luigi's Mansion pretty much scared the crap out of me, granted, that was a while ago, but nonetheless....
At this rate I might actually be able to get through my backlog of unplayed games before 2013, woohoo!
At this rate, the Vita might actually get some worthwile games.
Why do handhelds suck this generation?
THANK YOU! Because the game looks totally incomplete, there is no unique ghost with a back story like the original. The ghost in the trailer looked generic as well. Delaying is the best decision.
As long is the delay is for polishing the game, I have no problem with it.
I'll have Paper Mario to hold me over until this game is released.
