Nintendo Australia Goes Release Date Crazy

Paper Mario dated, new 3DS XL bundle announced

Nintendo of Australia has today confirmed some details on upcoming 3DS games such as Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, as well as a bunch of new downloadable games coming to the Nintendo eShop.

Paper Mario: Sticker star will be available in Australia and New Zealand on the 8th of December - you can find our hands-on impressions of the game here. This is a day after Europe and almost a whole month after North America.

Released a whole two days before Paper Mario is the new Nintendo 3DS XL White, which will come with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed directly on the unit. This comes in line with the recently announced bundle in Europe, however, no news on the Pikachu 3DS XL, unfortunately.

Also, we now know that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will ship in Australia before March 2013, and Fallblox is definitely coming out in the next couple of months.

With the Wii U coming out in Australia on the 30th of November, it looks like Nintendo is giving Australians plenty of reasons to spend some serious dollars. What will you be picking up this holiday season?
