Oh shit funky barn 3d!!!!

stealth20k (on 15 April 2012)

I have no desire to. Just because they entered dates doesnt mean the titles are popular or good. In fact most of them are titles Ive never even heard of and are destined to be shovelware

stealth20k (on 15 April 2012)

That list is really incorrect and just plain lazy how about pokemon conquest, agarest 2, gungir all in june? How about growlanser in july? How about many other titles And how do you figure type zero is tba in the US?

ioi (on 15 April 2012)

"Planned" and "announced" are two entirely different things. There are dozens upon dozens of games that developers have said they have planned, but officially "announced" as for certain, going-to-be-released titles, that's a different story. We'll probably hear about all sorts of them at E3.

Doesn't Black and White 2 have a fall 2012 release date for NA?

axumblade (on 15 April 2012)

Diablo 3, Starhawk, Gravity Rush, the last story, Borderlands 2, bioshock infinite, GTA5, tomb raider, assassins creed 3, animal crossing, luigis mansion, paper mario, are all on my hype list...and don't get me started on the tba games since some have been pushed till 2013 already....and I was wondering where the games were...

happydolphin (on 15 April 2012)

Wii-ew, wii-ew, wii-ew, wii-ew!! Well, I'm just happy the next gen is in :D And, anyone else amazed at the breadth of Wii software coming out this year? Mist of Pandaria will be so interesting to watch. Apparently the game as a pokémon-esque system apart from the usual quest system. It will be huge. Also looking forward to Diablo III and Epic Mickey 2.

PikaPikachu (on 15 April 2012)

already preordered Grand Theft Auto 5, Pokemon Black and White 2 and Tomb raider :)

ali_manslayer (on 15 April 2012)

StarHawk, Max Payne 3, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, The Last Guardian, Darksiders II, Anarchy Reigns looking forward to those

Nem (on 17 April 2012)

Dragons Dogma, Kingdom hearts 3D, Fire emblem, Resident Evil 6 and Guild Wars 2 are the ones im aiming for.

thewastedyouth (on 16 April 2012)

I hate most of the games, damn and another Crysis. That was fast

homer (on 16 April 2012)

Whoever made the graphic for this article must have hated the ps3. There are literally 0 box art covers for it on the picture.

the_dengle (on 16 April 2012)

05/22 - RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D (3DS)

UnknownFact (on 16 April 2012)

So many games, so little time...

the_dengle (on 16 April 2012)

Guess you didn't get the memo. Resident Evil 6 was bumped up to October 2.

Gilmour (on 15 April 2012)

So many good games at the end of the year. Sucks to have low game budget.

stealth20k (on 15 April 2012)

Ok let me be kind again, even though I shouldnt Your missing REXX, class of heroes 2, grand knight history, fire emblem, ninokuni and after E3 you will probably be adding persona 4 golden, etrian IV, and type zero at the minimum And those arent even the rest I found

ioi (on 15 April 2012)

This isn't meant to be an exhaustive list, just the major releases. We could go on forever adding every single game - the ones you have listed here are very much niche titles.

stealth20k (on 15 April 2012)

I can say the ones you have up there are not only bad titles, they are generic.....

So I would think you would want to put the good but niche ones up there........

because quite honestly without them the list is sad.......

and just to prove your incorrect the last Fire emblem sold over 100k in the US, thats hardly niche

ioi (on 15 April 2012)

I haven't chosen which ones we put up - these just happen to be the titles that people have entered dates for in the database, i.e the more common and popular titles. Feel free to add the dates for those titles and they will show up next time we run one of these articles.

the_dengle (on 15 April 2012)

You forgot Atelier Meruru on May 25th, and will fall in hell for that. Also, since when is Medal of Honor : Warfighter coming to WiiU?

duckypwns (on 15 April 2012)

Mostly looking forward to Luigi's Mansion 2, KH3D, Pokemon Black / White 2, and Assassin's Creed 3.

butcherknife (on 15 April 2012)

Isn't Resistance Burning Skies for the PS Vita out this May 29?

stealth20k (on 15 April 2012)

that list is missing games man and has incorrect dates

duckypwns (on 15 April 2012)

Well maybe you should point them out. And I think they mostly list games people care about. I mean imagine if they put every shovelware game.

most of the titles for the wii u are under NDA, for example in that list ALIENS: colonial marines is confirmed for the wii u and is not writen there, stop the non-sense flaming
