Luigi's Mansion 2, Castlevania and Brain Training Coming Spring 2013 in Europe and North America

Posted by Martin Watts

Better start saving now

In its Nintendo Direct presentations earlier today, Nintendo gave a better indication of when western gamers can expect to play a few upcoming 3DS titles: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate and Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? (Brain Age: Concentration Training in North America).

Europeans will be able to get their hands on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate and Luigi's Mansion in March 2013, though there's no specific date announced for either of these titles just yet. Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training, on the other hand, will be available to test your mind matter in all-new ways from 8th March 2013.

North American 3DS owners, however, have less specific information regarding these titles right now; all three are simply slated for a spring 2013 release at the moment.

With several games bunched into the same release window, will you be saving up your hard-earned cash to get your hands on all of these titles when they release next year?

March and April will be a great time for 3DS owners: Luigi's Mansion, Castlevania, Harmo Knight and Monster Hunter Tri G in March and Fire Emblem in April. God I can't wait to finally play those games!

It's Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Harmoknight for me, and maybe Fire Emblem Awakening. I expect the release dates will be very close to the European range, so I'm not worried about that.

@Marioldent: It could be that its called LM2 in Europe and Dark Moon in NA.

I looking foward to LM:DM even though I never played the first one and Castlevania as well.

I expect Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon to arrive in NA sometime in March 2013 as well. So I should be set with Fire Emblem: Awakening in February and then this in March. However, it's still a mystery when I'll get my hands on Animal Crossing: New Leaf. :O

So Fire Emblem's coming in February, Luigi's Mansion will arrive in the Spring and Animal Crossing will probably be released sometime in the Summer? Prudent of Nintendo to spread out their bigger releases like that.

I'll get Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, the first Luigi's Mansion was the first game I played for the Gamecube back in the day, also the 3DS just outsold the gamecube, the gamecube is still awesome.

I hoped we would see Luigi's mansion 2 in Januari or Februari, but it seems we need to wait a little longer sadly!

One last thing: It seems the Kirby collection is still coming to Europe! The site of the specialized shop I sometimes visit says the game arrives in 2013! So there is still hope!
