Not long to go 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?
