I am mostly into Shooters and adventure games, but I like many other genres if they are good.

But looking at the IGN release date, it looks like there aren't too many games coming out that interest me.

Are there going to be announcements of games in the future? Anything, whether it be 3rd party or first party games. Where is the Metroid announcement, for example. Anyways, your thoughts on this would be interesting.

There's Castlevania, Fire Emblem, and Luigi's Mansion as far as I know. They'll probably announce a couple more games via Nintendo Direct later in the year.

Shooters? Probably not. Adventure? Luigi's Mansion: DM is different sort of adventure game, but it would fall under that category better than any other. Other than that, Paper Mario will (probably) be a very great RPG that you really, really shouldn't dismiss. To be honest, not much else has been announced that I think you'd be remotely interested in. As for future announcements, of course there will be future announcements, but none of us would know when those are going to be announced. I would expect a Retro Studios (Metroid) announcement soon, but probably for Wii U, not 3DS, though I could be wrong.

Castlevania, Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, Monster Hunter 4, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy and Super Smash Bros. are all the confirmed ones. We also know that a Majora's Mask remake, a Link to the Past remake or a Link to the Past sequel will come to the 3DS. Also a brand new Zleda will come as well, but we don't know any idea when. Also Beyond the Labrynth and Monster Hunter 3G could both see localizations, we can't be sure. Capcom has expressed interest in creating another Resident Evil for the 3DS and there were rumors that a new Resident Evil will be released. Also Capcom has said they have no reason not to make Street Fighter X Tekken for the 3DS and have expressed interest in doing so. For shooters I think we'll probably eventually see Call of Duty, nothings announced for this year, but Activision tends to wait until only a couple months before confirming Call of Duty for Nintendo consoles. We don't have confirmations for the Wii or Wii-U either, but I think we'll see it on one of the consoles, probably the Wii-U. Conduit 3DS was also confirmed and gameplay was shown, it looked actually really good for the small chunk shown. HVS has gone quiet, but its not officially cancelled and HVS has recently said they haven't gone under, so hopefully its still planned. Square Enix has expressed interest in remaking Final Fantasy V and VI for 3DS. Final Fantasy III and IV were remade on the DS. I think a lot of DS sequels will be made for 3DS, like Golden Sun, TWEWY and Advance Wars. Expect a lot of new IPs and surprising titles to come as well. The 3DS so far has much more third party support then the DS actually, and the first party support has been pretty much on par with the DS. Also games like Pokemon are pretty much confirmed eventually to come to 3DS. Games like Metroid and Donkey Kong will probably come. I would like to see a brand new Star Fox as well.

I haven't heard anything about EX Troopers in a while, but if it leaves Japan, it ought to scratch the shooter itch rather well. Otherwise, Castlevania is on it's way, and I'd give it about a 50/50 shot as to whether the new Army of Two game is going to have a handheld release, and if it does, I'd wager another 50/50 shot as to whether it'll be on 3ds or Vita.

Besides what they mention, all I can think of is Code of Princess, which I think looks really cool :)

I am not at all surprised that no one mentioned super smash bros. 4. It's coming out for the 3DS and Wii U (with communication between the two) with rumored custom characters on the 3DS that you can apparently send to the Wii U, and it's a freaking Smash Bros game for crying out loud! It's grand enough that they made it on the 3DS, but on the Wii U too?

Yes there is a petition going for majoras mask and miamoto said they will probably make it but not until after zelda 3ds which miamoto has stated might be a sequal to link to the past.

Miyamoto said that he will make one of those 3, along with a completely new Zelda for 3DS.

A sequal to link to the past wouldn't be new?
