Reggie Fils-Aime today defined the 3DS’ launch window as between March 27 and June 7, when E3 kicks off, and said that more than 30 games will be available to Nintendo 3DS owners over those two months or so.
So far Nintendo is only naming 23 of them in the US. Here they are:
Pilotwings Resort nintendogs + cats Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Madden NFL Football The Sims 3 Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Ridge Racer 3D Dual Pen Sports Super Monkey Ball 3D Thor: God of Thunder CRUSH 3D BUST-A-MOVE UNIVERSE Samurai Warriors Chronicles Dead or Alive Dimensions Asphalt 3D Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D Rayman 3D Rabbids Travel in Time
Nintendo says that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising and new instalments in the Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Paper Mario series, are also all in the works. I take that to mean that they won’t be hitting that “launch window.”
