5 games to keep you busy until Pokemon X and Y

Comment on site articles.

Can't wait until October? Marti Bennett chooses five games that Pokemon fans might enjoy on 3DS

Good news everyone! There's only just over nine months until Pokemon X and Y are released! What do you mean that's a long time to wait? Well yes, I guess you're right. I guess knowing a release date so far in advance does mean we have a painful wait.

When Animal Crossing comes out, I'll be absorbed into that, but in the meantime I've still to beat the Elite Four on Black 2. And I suppose Mario Kart 7 never gets old.
But as well as that, I've got Jetpack Joyride on two systems to complete.

Why has no one mentioned Fire Emblem: Awakening yet isn't that coming out in April?

Anyways, looking forward to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Fire Emblem and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokemon X and Y obviously :D .

"considering all the Mystery Dungeon games have been released in the UK,"

Seriously? Blazing/Stormy and Light Adventure Squad are out? When did the release of these three happen over here?

Wait, they didn't?

Oh...

Also:

"our Generation V to Generation IV games"

WOAHWOAHWOAH... Gen 5 to 4? BW to DP? The games aren't backwards compatible like THAT and never will be.

Animal Crossing should keep me busy from whenever the release date is and onwards, but I think that the main game I'll be playing until October is going to be Ni no Kuni on the PS3.

*checks my copy I sent Tom* Nope. Looks like Tom did some editing here. I wouldn't have said that about the Mystery Dungeon games as I am well aware of the Wii games, and in that generation sentence I used numbers instead of V and VI. It was supposed to say gen 5 to gen 6 (V to VI)

I fear we might not actually be seeing Animal Crossing until the end of the year, considering there was no sign of it in the American release schedule for the first half of this year. It's not impossible for it to be released before October, but that localisation could be a considerable setback.

9 months...excruciatingly long wait!
I really hope Animal Crossing comes out this summer. ShopTo has it placed as June, but of course, that's not accurate! I can't wait to play it! I'm also really looking forward to playing Luigi's Mansion. HarmoKnight looks really cool too!
Also looking forward to some WiiU games, like The Wonderful 101, Lego City Undercover and Pikmin 3.
Of course, the main thing that will be keeping me busy is all my Uni work *cries*
I haven't transferred all my Pokémon to one cartridge yet either. I had the full pokédex on Pokémon Diamond, and started transferring them all to Pokémon Black way back when, but then my exams were close and had little spare time. But I did manage to get most of them onto Pokémon Black, but never got round to finishing it off. I'm going to move them all to Black 2 soon.
I really hope they do make a quicker way, as it's way to slow at the moment. Someone else said, and I agree, the best way would to make an 3DS eshop storage app game that can take all your Pokémon, and then you put in your 3DS Pokémon X or Y and you can transfer them all from the box. So Pokémon Box 2.
Also, give us Meoletta!! They still need to distribute Meoletta in our country. Then we can finally complete the current National Pokédex (again) before the new one comes.

No Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon? That comes out this March too, and that could keep people playing until Pokemon X and Y are released in October.

I bought myself Black 2 for Christmas and have only just arrived at Route 4. Having played every generation, I'm determined to finish the Pokedex this time round! I've also got NSMB2 and the newest Professor Layton, both of which I haven't played yet.

...xD I thought the point of the editing was to remove any potential errors, not add a load more in... Probly worth kicking him then, or something...
