Note to self: Set aside all money for 2010.

Although the DS's showing at E3 was nowhere near as expansive as some of us would have liked, Nintendo still came out of it with a few nice treats lined up for us in the next twelve months. Well, today they got a little more specific with their timings, letting us know exactly when we can buy those mouthwatering new pocket titles - although sadly some dates are more exact than others.

Bear in mind that these are all North American release dates, and that they are subject to change, within reason - don't expect to see Golden Sun DS bumped up to pre-Christmas.

Fossil Fighters - Aug. 10, 2009
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box - Aug. 24, 2009
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - Fall 2009
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Fall 2009
Style Savvy - Holiday 2009
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - Holiday 2009
Glory of Heracles - 2010
Golden Sun DS - 2010
WarioWare D.I.Y. - TBD
Picross 3D - TBD

The good news of course is that Picross 3D is now on Nintendo of America's release schedule, a cheering thought for all of us dying to get our hands on the cubic mindbender, and it's nice to see the next Professor Layton game due out as early as August. That said, the fact we won't be playing Golden Sun DS until next year is... almost too much to bear.
