I'll be picking them all up on launch day besides Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.




It's kind of odd, but funny to me seeing as how BOTH Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Animal Crossing: New Leaf are in a 4 day and 6 day radius from the North America release dates. I do feel bad that Australia has to wait a bit to get Fire Emblem: Awakening though. I may not have bought the game, but I have heard some good things about it as of lately.

Pretty horrible timing for Luigi's Mansion.
It joins Lego City as a game that I can't play straight away because I'm too busy with Monster Hunter.

Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing for me! BTW it's not called Dark Moon over here, just simple old Luigi's Mansion 2.

Damn, won't be picking up Luigi's Mansion 2 on launch day then, given I'm getting Lego City: Undercover. I'll probably get Fire Emblem: Awakening on launch day though.



BenAV said:

I didn't really notice that it's just Luigi's Mansion 2 here till now.
That's good, I like that much better than Dark Moon.

My pre-order for Fire Emblem: Awakening is ready!

@RetroGBHippie - mate! Give FE:SS another go and don't let your ego stop you picking "Easy" - that's what I'm doing and I'm loving the game

P.S. Thanks for the Aussie news, BTW, Andy

I'll definately be getting Luigi's Mansion 2. Maybe Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. Not interested in the Mystery Dungeon series.

I have Luigi's Mansion 2 and Animal crossing pre ordered. I thinking of getting the fire emblem 3DS bundle if comes out here. I won't be getting Pokemon though.

Most of these titles are basically the same day Europe gets them thanks to our time difference

I'll get Animal Crossing, maybe Mystery Dungeon. I've never been any good at Fire Emblem though

Aussie dates don't matter to me. If it's much cheaper on ozgameshop, the local retailers can suck it.

Can't wait for Animal Crossing, something to past time and my youngest can play.

Woah! Mystery Dungeon is released three days before my birthday! XD
It's GREAT to hear some Australian news!



TheAdza said:

Was hoping for March release of FE. Oh well, all big games to look forward to.





Yeah. It's really weird when you think of it about the whole title of the game. IMO, it should be called [ Luigi's Mansion 2 ] OVERALL in all regions. But with the US , they have to crap on us here by putting in a subtitle in the form of Dark Moon. Yet another reason I sometimes question NOA's marketing strategies here in North America.

@RetroGBHippie92 Also, Awakening has a Casual mode that you can chose to play with so that your units come back after you beat the chapter if they die.
