Action-puzzler coming soon to the eShop

Nintendo detailed a number of 3DS eShop titles today, including Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move, a new action-puzzle game in which players slide tiles around to get familiar characters to pick up coins and avoid obstacles.

In addition to that main style of gameplay, there are minigames offered as well. Frankly, those -- especially the slingshot one with the rainbow-colored cube -- look like they could be just as much of a draw, if not more.

As someone who could never truly get into the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, this looks great, sounds great, and exactly how "soon" is "coming soon"? Inquiring minds must know!
