Nintendo reveals all 18 3DS launch day titles Confirming previously unconfirmed lists, Nintendo has revealed all 18 launch titles for the upcoming 3DS handheld.
The device hits Japan this week and the U.S. on March 27th.

Says Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime:

Seeing 3D visuals without the need for special glasses is just one aspect of Nintendo 3DS. The real test of any system is whether the games and applications draw you in and keep you engaged. Through the launch window and beyond, Nintendo 3DS delivers.


The device will sell for $250 in Cosmos Black and Aqua Blue bundles that include a free charging dock and a 2GB SD card. Each 3DS comes with the games Face Raiders and AR Games pre-installed.

Three of the titles will be Nintendo-published, and all titles have an MSRP of $39.99:

- Pilotwings Resort
- Steel Diver
- nintendogs + cats


And third party published:

- Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition from CAPCOM
- The Sims 3 from EA
- Madden NFL Football from EA SPORTS
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
- LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars from LucasArts
- RIDGE RACER 3D from NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.
- Super Monkey Ball 3D from SEGA
- BUST-A-MOVE UNIVERSE from Square-Enix, Inc.
- SAMURAI WARRIORS: Chronicles from TECMO KOEI AMERICA Corp.
- Asphalt 3D from UBISOFT
- Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D from UBISOFT
- Rayman 3D from UBISOFT
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars from UBISOFT

You are right, there are only 16 games listed because Face Raiders and AR Games come pre-installed with each 3DS. I will update the article to reflect that and avoid future confusion, sorry!

well i was hoping to get my hands on that Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Remake it was shown as a tech demo...but id rather buy the PSP2 @ $300USD Not because i think Sony's a grand Lad ta play Pogo with but because of the PSP2 Raw power(if those specs hold true it going to be one hell of a device)

Beats the crap out of the original DS launch! I had nothing but the Metroid Prime Demo and Super Mario 64 for nearly nine months.

I probably will not get this on launch date, I'm going to wait and see if there are bundle deals or not. With the PSP2 lurking in the corner, it's a tough decision...


Peace!

The Thing that sucks about the 3DS is that you get 3-5 Hours Playtime (I'm Guessing 3 Hours in 3D Mode, and 5 Hours 2D Mode). Insult to Injury is that you cannot play it while it is being Charged. Placing it in the Charger shuts it off so it can charge quicker. Probably 2 to 3 Hours of Charge Time.

Seriously? You can't play while charging? I didn't know that... Wow, that's a real let down. I mean really? I know the 3DS got battery life issues, but since I game at home or office most of the time, outlet is not a problem.

Peace!
