Nintendo have unveiled their newest release schedule for the 3DS including confirmed dates for key titles Mario Tennis Open and Sega’s  Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure.

Unfortunately, the schedule is far from complete, since around half of the titles have no firm date attached to them other than a month or a quarter, but at least we can see what Nintendo have lined up for the handheld in the coming months. With the Vita likely to take at least some attention from them in the handheld marketplace, a statement of intent like this is probably a good idea.
