San Diego Comic-Con 2012 will mark the first public hands-on with the Nintendo 3DS XL, but the company isn't bringing the Wii U to the show.

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 will mark the first public hands-on in the US with the Nintendo 3DS XL, the company announced today.

Nintendo is supplementing its booth on the show floor (#5135) with a Nintendo Gaming Lounge, which will be located in the San Diego Ballroom of the Marriott Marquis & Marina Hotel, right next door to the convention. The Lounge is open to the public — you don't even need a Comic-Con badge to get in.

Wii, 3DS, and DS games will be shown at Nintendo's booth and in the Lounge, but curiously, the company will not have the Wii U — which is due out this fall — available to play.

Check out the full list of playable games below.
