Nintendo’s 3DS Conference reveals Monster Hunter 4, Kid Icarus delay, more

Nintendo’s 3DS Conference is over and while it was short on details, it was long on game announcements. All told, more than 20 titles were revealed including the next numbered game in the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter 4. Obviously, the Monster Hunter series is a much bigger deal in Japan than it is in the US, but it’s a major “get” for Nintendo all the same.

Nintendo had a few games of their own to announce at the show including an all-new Fire Emblem game, Mario Tennis 3DS and Culdcept 3DS (developed by Omiya Soft), all due next year.

In addition to a slew of new titles for the hardcore gamer, Nintendo revealed a new focus on “female gamers” for the 3DS with the reveal of the Misty Pink system seen to your left. The new color scheme will be available in Japan in October. This push for the female demographic will also include new Friend Collection and Style Savvy games in 2012.

In a bit of bad news, Kid Icarus: Uprising won’t make it out this year. Pit’s return will be released in 2012 instead.

Hit the jump for a complete list of everything Nintendo showed at their 3DS Conference, complete with tentative Japanese release dates. For some of these titles, an American release is a sure thing (or already announced). While for others, we’ll just have to hope for the best. Here we go. (more…)
