The 3DS features are utilized to incorporate all new battle styles that take place in both the real world that requires cooperation with the brothers and Luigi’s dream world that can involve many Luigi’s helping Mario advance through levels.

Square Enix’s Bravely Default: Flying Fairy might be one of the more bizarre names for their RPGs, but it is coming to 3DS. Sometime in 2014. Yikes. The concept of skipping a turn in battle to have a chance to do more damage in later rounds is very intriguing. Also added to the 2014 roster is Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy for 3DS.
Shin Megami Tensei IV for 3DS hits July 16 and Atlus has revealed the first shipment to include plenty of swag.

The Mushroom Kingdom has been a little too quiet lately, so it’s time for the Super Mario gang to have a party, a Mario Party! The series has been absent since 2008, but fret no more, on March 11 this year you can join in on all the mini game mayhem once again. After the break are 12 new screen shots released by Nintendo to help tie you over until then.
