Lego City: Undercover coming March 18, Monster Hunter on March 19, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on March 24

Nintendo is bringing Lego City: Undercover to the Wii U on March 18, with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate set to be released the following day for both Wii U and 3DS and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon hitting 3DS on March 24, helping to kick off Nintendo's spring 2013 lineup, the company announced today.

Four more titles are scheduled to hit the Wii U library in the first half of 2013, including Pikmin 3, Game & Wario, The Wonderful 101 and Wii Fit U. Specific launch dates will be announced at a later time, the company says. Criterion's Need for Speed: Most Wanted will also hit Nintendo's latest console on March 19 as well.

Nintendo will also begin offering a Wii U GamePad Accessory Set for $12 each beginning on Feb. 4. The set contains a screen protector for the GamePad to prevent smudging and an extra-large stylus for use with the screen.

The 3DS will also receive a handful of titles in the beginning of the year, including Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon on March 24, the direct sequel to the 2001 original Luigi's Mansion for the GameCube.

Additionally, a prequel title to Wii U's Lego City: Undercover will be released for 3DS on April 21. Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins will set up the main game's storyline, with players stepping into the shoes of protagonist Chase McCain during his days as a new cop.
