The next game in the Brain Age series will arrive for 3DS in the US on February 10 under the name Brain Age: Concentration Training, while a release in Europe under the title Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? will arrive on March 8.

Nintendo says that the game will offer a new focus on expanding user attention span to keep up with the information overload from the internet and devices like smartphones.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which was previously announced for the first half of 2013, has now been confirmed for the year's second quarter in Europe, putting its projected release date between April and June. No new information was announced for the North American release.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon has now also been confirmed for a UK release in March along with Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - Mirror Of Fate. Meanwhile both games in North America were given the more ambiguous date of spring 2013.

The new release dates were revealed during the Nintendo Direct video conference earlier today, where it was also announced that Pikmin 3 will be delayed on Wii U.
