Nintendo laid out its game plan for the Nintendo 3DS well into 2012 at a press conference in Tokyo today, showering us with new games and new media for its 3D handheld. Let's catch up.

In this gallery, you'll see gameplay video of 3DS entries of Paper Mario, Mario Tennis, Animal Crossing, and Fire Emblem, plus extended gameplay of Kid Icarus Uprising and a new horror game called Shinrei Camera. Curiosity seekers may want to dive in further for previews of the new Tomodachi Collection, a 3DS sequel to a wildly popular Nintendo DS game that never left Japan, and Girls Mode, the follow-up to the game that came to the States as Style Savvy.

This is just the Nintendo stuff! We'll have more video soon, but if you missed them earlier, here are new trailers for Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land.
