Mario always seems to beat his brother at something or another, including release dates for 3DS games. Paper Mario: Sticker Star has been dated for November 11, while Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is not releasing until early 2013. It’s a bit of a wait, but this helps the green plumber beat the holiday rush.

Along with the two Mario (yes, Mario and Luigi’s last name is Mario) games, Nintendo has also released an extensive lineup of titles coming to their handheld. With the 3DS XL just a few days away from launch, these upcoming games might be the incentive you need to pick one up. One thing that worries us, though, is the lack of Animal Crossing. Also, where is Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate?
