Good Morning 3DS

Nintendo World 3DS Event
Nintendo’s Japanese 3DS event kicked off this weekend and Internet headlines erupted, particularly with the additional specs on the battery life – 3-5 hours when using the 3D in 3DS, and 5-8 hours when gaming the old fashioned way.

What’s interesting while slurping my coffee this morning is the list of titles slated for Spring and Summer 2011 via Nintendo’s 3DS page, which despite all the buzz Capcom has captured over the past few months show the biggest early contributors to the 3DS library so far as Ubisoft, Namco and Konami.

Ubisoft has 5 games listed – Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D as a February 26th launch title, and Spring 2011 showing Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, Splinter Cell 3D, Driver Renegade, and Rabbits Time Travel.

Another interesting tidbit is the initial launch pricing presently attached to February titles – Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle launches alongside the system for 5,980 Yen ($72 USD) while Ridge Racer 3D runs 6,090 Yen ($73.3 USD) – assuredly making Nintendogs + Cats a steal at 4,800 Yen ($58 USD) – keep in mind those are just USD conversions and not final US pricing.

Plenty more bits of info litter Nintendo’s Japanese 3DS Site, so check it out.

  1. Only a couple of more days until we have the Americas blowout on the 3DS. I’ll wait until the end of 2011 to get one since I’ve got a lot of games at the moment and not enough time but I do look forward to the release and pricing info.
