The Nintendo 3DS's 2012 is already looking rosy with new versions of Mario Tennis, Paper Mario and Animal Crossing planned for a 2012 release—at least in Japan.


Nintendo unveiled the new Mario Tennis at its 3DS Conference 2011, showing gameplay footage alongside new footage of Paper Mario and Animal Crossing for its 3D handheld. The company also has a new Tomodachi Collection, an all-new Fire Emblem and another Style Savvy game in the works for the 3DS.
