Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World coming Nov. 22

Both The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World will release on Nov. 22, Nintendo announced today. The two hotly anticipated franchise titles for 3DS and Wii U respectively joined a suddenly-populated holiday release calendar from Nintendo.

Nintendo will further overwhelm Nov. 22 with the launch of Mario Party: Island Tour for 3DS. Other dated games include Wii U platformer Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is now set for Dec. 6, and Wii Party U, which launches on Oct. 25 bundled with a Wii Remote Plus controller and stand for $50.

Delayed launch title Wii Fit U and athletic team-up Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will both launch "this holiday season." Nintendo said it will have more information on both titles at a later date.

What do you think of Nintendo's holiday line-up?

Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo.
