Super Mario 3D Land for Nintendo 3DS dated

Mario Kart 7 also lined up for release…in Japan

Japanese gamers set to get Super Mario 3D Land and Nintendo 3DS soon.

Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, two of the most anticipated games for the Nintendo 3DS, have been slapped with release dates. Well, in Japan at least. Super Mario 3D Land hits shelves on 3 November, with Mario Kart 7 coming on 7 December.

The news was revealed by Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata, speaking ahead of this year’s Tokyo Games Show, which starts this Thursday, 15 September. Sadly, no news about a UK release date has been revealed, although you can expect to hear official word very soon.

Super Mario 3D Land is likely to make the 3DS a must-have for Christmas, with Mario Kart 7 also proving pretty tempting. The console’s price was slashed over the summer following poorer than expected sales.
