In case you missed it yesterday, Nintendo capped off their dire-looking financial report with an updated list of all their upcoming games for the next year and beyond. While there weren’t any new reveals, the documentation at least confirms that nothing is getting pushed back from this year—or in the case of games like the 3DS Super Smash Bros. title, no new date’s been set.

Here’s a look at the full list, pulled from Nintendo’s quarterly brief:

  • Just Dance Wii 2 — 7/26/2012 (Wii)
  • Demon Training — 7/28/2012 (3DS)

  •

  • New Art Academy — 7/28/2012 (3DS)
  • Nintendo 3DS XL — 7/28/2012
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2 — 8/17/2012 (3DS)
  • Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure — Sept. 2012 (DS)
  • Inazuma Eleven Strikers — 9/28/2012 (Wii)
  • Pokémon Black 2 — 10/12/2012 (DS)
  • Pokémon White 2 — 10/12/2012 (DS)
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2 — 2012 (3DS)
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask — 2012 (3DS)
  • Animal Crossing — 2013 (3DS)
  • 
Fire Emblem — 2013 (3DS)
  • Paper Mario — TBD (3DS)

Frustratingly, there’s not a single Wii U title in the list, so Nintendo’s still playing it extremely close to the vest on their new console’s release date and launch line-up. It also seems like Nintendo of America’s leaving money on the table by not localizing Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure, especially considering the popular brand recognition and the DS’ huge install base.

Hopefully, we get a fuller list with some Wii U titles in Nintendo’s next investor report. And the Wii U should be announced by that time, with a large list of third-party titles accompanied by release dates.
