Nintendo 3DS release details revealed

We've known about the 3DS for what seems like ages but now, finally, we have US launch details. The price for Americans is $249.99 and the release date is March 27, while Europeans will get it a few days earlier, on March 25th. European pricing, however, will be decided by retailers. It looks like £229.99 is the going rate in the UK, while the rest of Europe is looking at €249.99.
Nintendo is promising "30+" games to be available in the US during the launch window, more than 25 in Europe, with that window spanning between the actual launches in March and E3 in June. Sadly we're still in the dark regarding which games exactly will be available when the system drops in March. Many games were discussed, including Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D, Dead or Alive Dimensions, Rabbids 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations, a new Paper Mario, and an obligatory Madden game too. This is in addition to titles we already knew about, like Pilotwings Resort and Kid Icarus: Uprising. As for pricing, retailers are showing $40 to $50 per game.
Meanwhile, European gamers are going to be getting a taste of exclusive 3D video content from a variety of partners, most notable being EuroSport, which will be serve up depth-enabled sports footage to portable consoles. It's also told episodes of Shaun the Sheep, a new series from Wallace & Gromit creators Aardman, will be available as well. For now these deals look Europe-only, but here's to hoping American folks will get something similar.

  1. Wow. Still not too happy about that battery issue though. Might as well stick with my custom firmware PSP, you know?

  2. I'm really excited about the OOT 3DS port, and the new Paper Mario.

    The only thing I'm sad about is that the 3DS won't be shipping fully functional; meaning, it won't have all the promise features available at launch.

  3. It looks interesting, and the DS really does have some awesome games on it, so its inheriting an awesome lineage. Im just not sure about the 3d, and I try to give game systems a year to mature before deciding if its for me.

  4. When I was young, a new entertainment system came out every few years. There is no way that I can keep up with the new hardware that comes out now every season.

  13. Awesome. $50 bucks a game's a bit steep though. Still, you gotta go with the flow and if you wanna play all the latest games, you gotta buy all the newest gadgets. Good post!

  16. Gosh, I remember jamming on the Nintendo 8 bit back in the day. Was the best machine they ever came out with. I then blew money on the SEGA Saturn that went nowhere.
