Nintendo's 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo presence was largely dominated by the unveiling of its newest console, the Wii U, and talk of its newest handheld, the 3DS. Of course, the company still has two viable platforms in the Wii and DS, and Nintendo has now offered a look at its upcoming lineup for those two platforms.

And still the Kirbys come…
And still the Kirbys come…

Of particular note, Nintendo confirmed that Kirby Mass Attack for the DS will be available on September 19. Described as a side-scrolling real-time strategy game, Kirby Mass Attack superficially plays as a platformer. However, instead of running and jumping, players use the stylus to guide their troop of puffballs to safety.

Nintendo also dated Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident for June 27. Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2, which has been out in Japan since April 2010, will arrive on August 28. Nintendo also confirmed holiday launches for Kirby Wii and Fortune Street.
