Nintendo: '2013 is the year of the 3DS'

Nintendo has declared that 2013 will be the "year of the 3DS".

The firm's UK marketing director Shelly Pearce said that this year's software lineup is the system's strongest yet.

"Our aim is obviously to upgrade as many DS owners as possible and with our strongest ever software lineup and with games which appeal to all of our different audiences, this year really is the year of 3DS," she told MCV.

Blockbuster releases Luigi's Mansion 2 and Fire Emblem: Awakening have already hit the 3D handheld this year and the system will play host to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokemon X and Y, and a follow-up to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

"3DS has really come into its own over the last two years. The 2013 software lineup is the strongest we've ever had and combined with a diverse back-catalogue that includes both Nintendo favourites like Mario, Professor Layton and Zelda as well as titles like Kid Icarus and Heroes of Ruin or New Style Boutique, there really is something for everyone," Pearce added.

Nintendo also promised to heavily promote the 3DS with extensive television and social media campaigns in 2013.
