European DS Fans, These Are Your Big Games of 2011

Another release list incoming

While the 3DS is receiving most of the limelight, there are still a few interesting titles heading to DS in Europe over the coming months, as Nintendo Europe's most up-to-date release schedule shows.

The machine's upcoming catalogue offers a blend of popular and niche projects, from Solatorobo: Red the Hunter to the fourth game in the popular puzzle series, Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call (known as Professor Layton and the Last Specter elsewhere).

On the DSiWare front, Nintendo has announced Jagged Alliance from Cypronia — the team behind Crazy Cheebo: Puzzle Party and Ice Hockey Slovakia 2011 — and a summer release for Digital Leisure's Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp.

Here's what the 2D DS has to offer Europeans in the coming months.

In addition to the above variety of titles, Nintendo also has a treat for Mario fans later in the year. Players will be spoilt for choice as not one, but two Mario games are brought to life in stunning 3D on Nintendo 3DS - Mario Kart™ (temp) and Super Mario ™ (temp). Nintendo DS owners will also see the return of master puzzler Professor Layton in Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call™ (Nintendo) while The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword (Nintendo) and Kirby™ Wii (Nintendo) launch on Wii in 2011.
