Officials from Nintendo of Europe have revealed the company’s full first party publishing line-up for the rest of the year, minus any titles that will be released for the forthcoming Wii console. As would be expected, the majority of titles are for the Nintendo DS, with the already-passed releases of Big Brain Academy and Electroplankton on July 7th the last major summer releases for the company until 42 All-Time Classics (aka Clubhouse Games) on September 29th. This is followed by the Nintendo DS Browser on October 6th and the English Training: Have Fun Improving Your Skills on October 13th. The relevance of this title to the British market is unclear, since in Japan, it is aimed at teaching English as a foreign language, but it has been listed by Nintendo UK, and may be of more interest to the rest of Europe if using the same concept. Other releases include Sudoku Master (aka Sudoku Gridmaster) on October 27th, Actionloop (aka Magnetica) on October 27th and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team, plus the Red Rescue Team version on Game Boy Advance and Mario Slam Basketball (aka Mario Hoops 3 on 3) on November 10th. Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is due on November 24th, the Artoon developed Yoshi’s Island 2 is scheduled for December 1st and new Nintendo DS and GameCube versions of Harvest Moon are indicated for some point in the fourth quarter. The GameCube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is also given a “Q4” release date, disproving rumors that the GameCube version of the game would only be sold in North America.
