Still no Samurai thingy thing? Weird!

(also, why are Zen Studios bothering with a Solitaire game??)

Zen made eight Marvel tables, if I remember correctly. I wonder which of those they'll be putting across to the 3DS version. Or maybe they'll go with four to start with, with the other four for DLC. Ah, pointless speculation...

I thought Zen Studios was to focus on DLC for their current pinball game. Why is Marvel Pinball 3D an original game instead of DLC? Or is it a part of Zen Pinball and I'm missing something?

Excellent quality list, but no Sakura Samurai is disappointing. 3D Solitaire doesn't really get my blood pumping, but every one of the others looks interesting. Disappointing that a lot of the Q1 releases are now Q2 though. Block Factory and VVVVVV should also be out soon, it's weird that they're not on this list...
EDIT: Since 3D Solitaire is made by Zen Studios, it could still turn out pretty good!

Surely there's more than this on the way for the near future?
Good to see Mutant Mudds there, but we need Sakura Samurai and VVVVVV. :O

Picross DS and Picross 3D for DS were two of my favourite puzzle games - can't wait for the new one.

No VVVVVV, Sakura Samurai and Cave Story really annoys me though!!! :(

I don't want a half cooked game, but some indication of ETA would be really welcome :(

Hope Marvel Pinball hits the U.S. soon as well, but seeing as how long it took us to get Zen Pinball in comparison to EUR, it could be awhile. It'll be worth it though, Zen Pinball was fantastic.

Ah, Picross e is coming! And Mutant mudds! As for The rolling western: I thought it wasn't out?! And now it is?! Can anybody explain?

Update: Ok, it's really out today. But very expensive (10 Euro)! I'll wait for the reviews!

Looks good except for missing VVVVVV and especially Sakura Samurai (i want this game yesterday).
I hope Art of Balance TOUCH! consists of original levels and is not just a port of the WiiWare game.
Also quite a relief to finally have a sign of Picross E heading westward.
