Sega dates and shifts 3DS line-up

Sega finalized its upcoming slate of Nintendo 3DS games today, confirming a few known release dates, moving one game closer, and nailing down another. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, previously set simply for February, has now been given a release date of February 14 in North America, and February 10 in Europe. Meanwhile CRUSH3D, which had previously been set for February 21, has been moved up to January 10 in North America and January 13 in Europe.

Sega's other two upcoming 3DS games, Shinobi and Sonic Generations, retained their release dates of November 15 and November 22, respectively. This gives Sega a tidy two games for this holiday season and two more to start next year. February is usually a slow time for sales, but the Mario & Sonic Olympic games are consistent hits for Sega, so the timing makes sense.
