As well as some great movie tie-ins such as The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of the Unicorn and Captain America: Super Soldier, 3DS gamers are also scheduled to get their hands on some unique 3DS games, including James Noir: Hollywood Crimes, Dr. Lutrec and the Hidden Knights, Spiderman: Edge of Time, The Sims 3: Pets and NCIS 3D, to name but a few.
Nevertheless, there's more good news for fans of retro games and virtual board games, as both Mahjong 3D: Warriors of the Emperor and Tetris 3D will be making their debut on the 3DS console by the end of the month.
It may not be Mario Kart 7, but we reckon that this eclectic list of games will help to keep most 3DS gamers satisfied in the run up to Christmas. What's even better though, is that the Mini Gamers blogsite is dedicated to previewing and reviewing as many of the new games for you as is humanly possible.
Remember to check in with the Mini Gamers blogsite for more news on these games as it occurs.
