Aussie Nintendo gamers have no doubt been waiting for official local release dates of the publisher's final 2011 titles, given that the rest of the world seems to know theirs. To throw us a bone, Nintendo Australia has today confirmed confirmed the release dates for two of the three major end-of-year expected titles.
First we have The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The official website has been updated to reveal the game (standard and limited edition) will be available for purchase and pick-up on 24 November. Meanwhile Super Mario 3D Land for the Nintendo 3DS been confirmed for the exact same day, 24 November appearing on it's official website.
With these two games locked in, all that is left is Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS, which will be out in the United States and Europe by the end of the year. While we wait for confirmation of that date, why not check out our The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword hands-on preview? Make sure to look out for a Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land previews very soon.
