Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing 3DS Release Dates?

Both Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing 3DS lack an official release date, but if a GameStop posting is to be believed, that may just change. According to a picture taken of GameSpot’s future release calendar for the 3DS, both Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing 3DS are slated to release August 2, 2012 in North America. While this could simply be a placeholder date, we did report on a similar story that was in fact correct with the release of Mario Party 9.

It is also interesting to note that the cut off game from the list appears to be Paper Mario 3D, with the same release date of August 2, 2012, furthering the idea that these are simply placeholder dates.

Thanks to GoNintendo for the new story!

It’s traditional that they do this. Most placeholder dates from GameStop are usually the second day of the month, regardless of what day of the week it is. Since August 2, 2012 is a Thursday, that may be true for Japan and/or Australia. North America and Europe almost never release big first-party games on a Thursday.

Nope… not the date. They can’t be all be released on the same date. They must be estimates. If so, I’m going to guess in July… somewhere…

Like most Mario 3DS games, it’ll be $40.

If the Luigi’s Mansion 2 date is right, I’ll be pretty annoyed :x. It’s been pre-orderable from Game since January, and I would suspect it will release before June for sure :/.

I’m hoping that’s true, I’ve been dying to see LM2 come out. Earlier is always better though. =D

I can’t wait for LM2 and P.S. the new Mario Tennis for the 3DS is on the list too.

I am really looking for both of these games.
I like Luigi’s Mansion because of Luigi, and I like Animal Crossing since I like real life simulation games. 🙂

Gosh that seems like such a long time but I guess we will all have to wait. Hopefully this game is as good or better as the first one.
