Nintendo's second quarter lineup of 2011 has revealed two new first-party Wii games and the final release date for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

No matter how big of a submarine fan you are, one of the most anticipated titles announced for the Nintendo 3DS so far has been Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Nintendo was tight-lipped about when we'd see the remake of the classic N64 title, but with the recent announcement of the company's second quarter lineup for 2011comes a final release date for Link... in 3D.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which will add more content in the form of a master quest and other mystery additions, will be available in stores on June 19. That's a little over two months, if you want to count the seconds like me. Additionally, Nintendo dated a bunch of other titles, like Dead or Alive: Dimensons for May and Cave Story 3D for June 28.

Nintendo also did the unexpected and revealed two new first-party titles to be released on the Wii by the end of June. Wii Play: Motion is one, and it sounds like an upgrade of the original Wii Play. Wii Play was Nintendo's 9 mini-game bundle that also came with a Wii Remote, while Wii Play: Motion will be a 12 mini-game bundle that comes with a Wii Remote Plus. Nintendo says Wii Play: Motion will have players catching wind in umbrellas and smashing "garden pests" with a mallet.

The second first-party title coming out of Nintendo for the Wii this year is Mystery Case Files: Dust to Dust, another entry in the popular hidden-object franchise and the first on the Wii. Fans of hidden-object games should know what to expect here: moving through static scenes, finding hidden objects, picking up screwdrivers to loosen screws, etc. Dust to Dust will also feature a multiplayer component for co-op or competitive play.

The rest of the lineup is made up of titles such as Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Reader Rabbit Preschool through 2nd Grade, Conduit 2, Splinter Cell 3D, and Driver: Renegade. Whatever you may think about that, don't forget: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will be out on June 19. Here's the full list:
