Release Date Schedule Updated

Nintendo announced today that Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for the 3DS is coming out on March 18. That got me thinking, what else is on the way? So I scoured a couple of sites, including GameStop and Nintendo’s press site to see what else is on the docket so far this year. Notably missing are eShop games as those often don’t have release dates too far from launch. Below is the updated list of games coming out for Nintendo systems. Which ones are you most excited for?
