At the Nintendo Conference, the 3DS’ pricing and launch details were finally unveiled. Well, almost. They’ve said that it will launch in Japan in February 26, 2011, and March for Europe and America. The Japanese price for the 3DS will be 25,000 yen, which approximates to $300 in US dollars. However, there is some speculation that it will be $250 for the American release date, but we’ll see.
The handheld is looking to have a godly library of games, with Ninja Gaiden, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pilot Wings, Mario Kart, a version of Metal Gear Solid 3, and so many more. You can bet that almost every developer is jumping at the chance to develop for it; oh, and let’s not forget Resident Evil: Revelations, which as you will see in the video is looking to be the top competitor for future dollars.
