Today Nintendo announced the 1Q 2012 software lineups for the Wii and DS. The winter will see the release of several first-party games, including Kid Icarus: Uprising, Mario Party 9 and PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond.

3DS owners have the most to look forward to. In the coming months they'll receive not only Icarus but also Resident Evil Revelations, Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater, and TEKKEN 3D Prime Edition. In other words, the handheld will finally be receiving a lot of the "hardcore" titles that people have been waiting for.

The Wii and standard DS are obviously a bit older so their software lineups aren't so star-studded. In fact, the JRPG Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 is probably the only bright spot on the DS' radar. It's perhaps a not-so-subtle hint that you should upgrade your handheld...or hit up the bargain bin.

The full release schedule, broken down by platform, is below.
