Nintendo: "This is the year of 3DS"

The next 12 months will be crucial in the success of 3DS, says Nintendo.

The firm believes this is the year that it will upgrade customers from DS to its latest portable, thanks to a major year of releases, headlined by Luigi’s Mansion, Animal Crossing, Brain Training, The Legend of Zelda and Pokemon.

The company told MCV that these games will be backed by significant marketing campaigns that include TV advertising. (3DS, Industry, Nintendo)

I'll be getting Animal Crossing, Zelda: A Link to the Past 2, Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Pokemon Y, and a couple others I can't think of right now. It's going to be a pretty good year.

Brand new console just launched not even 6 months ago and yet they're calling this the year of the 3ds? Hey Nintendo, you do remember launching a new console last year right? And it's currently sitting on store shelves with the same launch games?
