Nintendo 3DS will be released in the U.S. in late March

Nintendo announced today that its 3DS system will be in stores March 27 of this year, and will cost $249.99. 

The Nintendo 3DS is a portable game console that is capable of producing 3D effects through the use of autostereoscopy. Autostereoscopy allows a user to experience 3D effects without glasses or headgear.  

The Nintendo 3DS was first announced on March 23, 2010, and was first seen on June 15 at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo. The system will feature backward compatibility with Nintendo DS series software, which includes the Nintendo DSi software.  

According to Gamasutra, Nintendo has confirmed 30 games that will be available for the launch of the 3DS. Twenty-five of these games have been confirmed for the United States so far, including Nintendogs & Cats, Steel Diver, Pilotwings Resort and Super Street Fighter IV 3D. 

Nintendo also noted that 3DS versions of Paper Mario, Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are in development.  

The new system will be released February 26 in Japan and March 27 in the United States.

RE: $250 is too expensive...

$250 seems alot but now that I think back, I I paid $250 for my PSP back at launch. I really did not like the orig DS at all as mostly all the games looked aweful that wasn't 2d sprite based, & I did not care for the the touchscreen. Just by looking at the visuals & graphics fidelity of some the 3DS games, this handheld is much much more powerful that the previous DS, & the SF IV games looks almost console quality. I won't buy one for myself but I am sure my daughter might want one, although, I am going to have to do more research about the machine damaging kids eyes. $250 is alot of money epsecially in these tough economic times for most families.
