Thanks a lot, I updated my post! :) Now I wonder if the "hub world" and "learnable moves" criteria are a little too strict, though... As long as 3D Jump 'n' Runs invite you to explore huge worlds those shouldn't matter too much. I... will think about it (opinions are welcome ;) ).

Weird that you didn't mention the Ty the Tasmanian Tiger series.

"FreezeME" isn't an upcoming game anymore, right?
[EDIT] Here's another 3D platformer:

Is Poi even coming to the Wii U?

Oh, and don't forget Lucky's Tale for the Oculus Rift. Yes, I know: a 3D platformer game made only for VR systems?

And Super Mario 64 DS, which was a remake of the original one, but more different than you think.

And what used to be Microsoft Studios first succesful exclusive game Blinx.

I don't know if some of these Sonic games fall in your criteria-specific list: Sonic Adventure (Sega Dreamcast)/Sonic Adventure DX Director's Cut (GCN), Sonic Adventure 2 (Sega Dreamcast)/Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (GCN), Sonic Heroes (GCN, PS2, XBOX), Shadow the Hedgehog (PS2, GCN, XBOX) Sonic Unleashed (PS3, Wii, X360, PS2), Sonic Colors (Wii, Nintendo DS), Sonic Generations (PS3, X360, Windows, N3DS), and Sonic Lost World (Wii U, N3DS).


And...


As much as it pains me to say it but you have to include the bad ones as well. Which one? Bubsy 3D/Bubsy is 3D in Furbitten Planet/Bubsy 3D: Furbitten Planet (PSX), Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) (X360, PS3), and of course, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U). People might see the list that you created up there, and say that some of these are great and not bad, but there will always be people asking if there were bad 3D platformer games.

You also forgot these games in your upcoming list:

1. Psychonauts 2 (PS4/XBONE/Win/Mac/Linux)

2.

I'll try to give you a list of more upcoming 3D platformer games that I found later on.

After my playthrough on the recently released Wii U version of Oddworld: New'n'Tasty, I started to discover the other Oddworld games.

And I did find a 3D platformer, called "Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee". I don't know much about this game, but what I know is that it's a rather linear, puzzle-platformer in which you play Abe & the new character, Munch. It shouldn't hold up too well when you compare it to other 3D platformers (and especially the first two Oddworld games), but it's worth a mention!maybe someone played it and can provide more details on which criterias are met in this one.

I don't know if you have the 3D Pac-man games which are Pac-Man World (PSX, GBA), Pac-Man World 2 (PS2, GCN, Xbox, Win, GBA), and Pac-Man World 3 (PS2, GCN, Xbox, PSP, NDS, Win). And the everybody's least favorite 3D Pac-Man games which are Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures (PS3, X360, WiiU, N3DS, Win), and Pac-man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (PS3, X360, WiiU, N3DS).

And now here's the list that I gathered. I don't know if these fit in your criteria, but here they are:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

There was another 3D platformer PC game that I used to play when I was a kid, and that game was (Win, Mac OS, Linux). It had a sequel, but it was for the Xbox 360, called . Is a shame that by that time Garage Games lost the distribution rights to those two that it got discontinued and/or removed.

EDIT: I don't know about you, but I think this topic should be stickied.

I don't know if the Mercury games by Archer Maclean (Archer Maclean's Mercury [PSP], Mercury Meltdown [PSP]/Remix[PS2], and Mercury Meltdown Revolution [Wii]), which are 3D puzzle games but somehow look like a 3D platformer game, fit your criteria.

Let's not forget the Disney Infinity series, and the LEGO video game series (which are pretty much all of them).

Here's a listing the majority of the 3D platformer games.

Here's a with all the 3D platformers that are available on Steam, right now as we speak. Careful, 'cause some of them might be the same ones that are already listed up there (or in the Wikipedia page).
