It's release date madness today, as Nintendo's American and European wings have announced countless release dates for Wii, DS and 3DS games.

For North America, the biggest news is Kid Icarus: Uprising's release date of 23rd March, but there's a bit more to discover in the list below; Rayman Origins is on course for a release in the first quarter, for instance.

As before Nintendo remarks this is a partial list of upcoming games, so if your favourite game — let's say, just for instance, Animal Crossing — isn't there, don't panic.
