While we pretty much know all about Nintendo's upcoming Switch and its launch lineup (for better or worse), the 3DS's lineup has been a little bit more up in the air, especially after Dragon Quest VIII's release last week. Until now, that is.
First up on the release docket is Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, the expanded 3DS port of Yoshi's Woolly World (which originally released on Wii U back in 2015) that features new stages and Poochy as a playable character. You won't have to wait long for this one -- it's coming next Friday (Feb. 3).
Two weeks after that on Feb. 16 comes Tank Troopers, an eShop-exclusive tank warfare game that supports up to six players battling against each other in team or free-for-all local multiplayer matches.
Jumping ahead to March 24 we have Mario Sports Superstars, which sees Mario and friends participating in five different sports: Golf, Soccer, Tennis, Baseball, and Horse Racing. Both local and online multiplayer will be supported. And if you didn't hear earlier, the game is not being solely developed by Camelot, surprisingly.
This will also be the first game to have its own amiibo cards (which add different bonuses to the gameplay) outside of an Animal Crossing title; the game comes bundled with one card, and additional blind packs of five will be sold for $4.99.
And, while not a Q1 title, we did receive word last week that the newly announced Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valencia will be releasing on May 21.
Expect to hear about Q2 releases sometime in March. At the moment, April seems to be wide open with no first-party releases scheduled, so hopefully something is planned for that month.
Also, the upcoming Pikmin game for 3DS that was revealed last Fall is still in the works for 2017, though no date has been finalized yet. It's possible that it might be a Summer or Fall release, though we'll have to wait and see.
Last but not least, two titles are joining the Nintendo Selects lineup and will now be available for $19.99. Those games are Kirby Triple Deluxe and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.
