Nintendo has dropped a bob-omb of release dates for 2009 (via Videogamer
). While mostly vague launch windows -- some of which will still likely be missed -- New Play Control! Pikmin
and Mario Tennis
will hit Europe February 6 and March 3, respectively, with the US getting both sometime in March. Other notable titles include Pokemon Platinum
(March 22 for US, sometime 2009 for Europe) and Punch-Out!!
(first half of 2009 for both regions).
Additionally, the Big N said Europeans will be able to welcome the DSi into their homes sometime this spring or summer -- not exactly the most narrow window there, and nothing we haven't already heard since president Satoru Iwata said the portable would be launching worldwide by summer 2009
. Check out the the full list for Europe and US after the break.
Note: titles without release dates are already available in the respective region. DS
