GameStop Listings Peg 3DS Titles At $40 To $50 In U.S.

Most Nintendo 3DS games will cost $US40, though two are listed at $US50 in a pre-order list GameStop is giving to customers who preorder the new handheld. Projected release dates are given for 26 titles, with the 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time confirmed for June 2.

Kotaku was sent this list by a reader; we have confirmed its information with multiple GameStop locations in different regions of the United States.

Only Dead or Alive Dimensions and Samurai Warriors Chronicles, set for release 12 days before the 3DS's were listed at $US49.99. The remainder, from Madden NFL Football 3D to Super Street Fighter IV to Kid Icarus: Uprising and Resident Evil: Mercenaries, are $US39.99.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for 3DS was specifically confirmed as a June 2 street date. All other games' dates are tentative and unconfirmed by their publisher. (3DS games' launch window has been defined as beginning March 27, and the list gives three titles with dates preceding that.)

    If only I didn't live in Australia... $60 games here I come.


      $60? RRP will be $69.95, if we're -lucky-. That's what DS games are currently at; I fully expect them to try to gouge us further and go for $79.95.

        I expect $100 -.-

    The only thing holding me back from importing is the 3DS Store region locking. I can see myself using it a lot.

    6 Nintendo A-grade franchises all on June 2?
    I find it hard to believe that Nintendo would crowd A-grade releases like that.
    But if they do... then that will be one expensive day for me =( Maybe I should plan a week off work... =)

    Why do I get the feeling these prices are a "because I can" thing, like $60+ HDMI cables. Tell the public it's better, they'll think it's justified that it's more expensive.
