Okay, this is somehow old news. The 3DS, according to a Twitter blog, might be released in 20 November 2010. The post was the following (the Twitter page has been removed):
Quote :
On November 20th, the 11 goods I designed for use with the 3DS will go on sale simultaneously. Those of you buying the 3DS, please buy them while you're at it! This will be officially announced on the homepage eventually, lol. Best regards.
Well, we have 3 sources (there might be others. I just met with these 3):
Bulbapedia, IGN and Kotaku

Nintendo 3DS Packaging revealed:
Quote :
You know the launch lineup. Now have a look at what Nintendo Japan's 3DS packaging looks like.

We snapped these pics at the Nintendo World event in Japan earlier today.




Nintendo put the Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black versions of the system on display in a small hardware corner of the event space. Joining the systems were system packaging and some dummy game cases.

It may be a bit difficult to see in the images, but the game cases are a lot thinner than DS game cases. They look closer to a DVD case in thickness.

Unfortunately, Nintendo did not have cases for actual games on display, but since the 3DS is launching in Japan in a little over a month, we presume box art should be coming soon.

Nintendo's 3DS Software Arsenal

Quote :
Nintendo's first public demonstration of the 3DS has kicked off in Japan, and we're starting to get a better picture of what's in store for the system in the coming months. As the event opened, Nintendo's Japanese 3DS site started to clarify some details about the system's software lineup - including which games will be present at launch.

Currently Nintendo has eight titles listed for the February 26 debut of its system overseas, including Nintendogs + Cats. What's perhaps most notable is that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Kid Icarus: Uprising are currently not slated to make launch. Ocarina is labeled as being a Spring 2011 release and Icarus is listed as Summer 2011. Though there was never any indication those particular games would in fact debut with the system, we certainly had our fingers crossed.

We're also hearing a few more details on Nintendo's first-party games. Steel Diver and Pilotwings are due in Spring 2011, with Star Fox coming later in the summer. Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Paper Mario are all TBD in the release date department.

Also worth noting is the pricing of these titles. Nintendogs has been set at 4800 yen (about $57) while other titles range from 5-6000 yen ($60 to $72). In Japan, a 4800 yen price point is common for DS software.

As you look through the below graphics, keep a few things in mind. This is a Japanese event, aimed at Japanese audiences. The United States launch software may be different. Also, some of the games here might not see an American release and some that aren't present (Madden) are definitely on the way. Nintendo's Japanese website also has more games listed that we don't have here because, well, we don't speak Japanese.

With that said... let's take a look at what's on the way.

Nintendo 3DS (Possibly) Region Locked

Quote :
Nintendo's much-anticipated 3DS handheld will apparently be region-locked, meaning that software will only work on hardware from the corresponding territory.

That could be bad news for anyone hoping to import the console upon its release in Japan on February 26, or those hoping to sample any of the games that won't make it over to their own shores.

Confirmation seemingly came from an email from Nintendo of Japan, spotted and translated by NeoGAF. While region-locking is historically commonplace on home consoles (Sony's PS3 a recent exception), handhelds have traditionally been free from the restriction – that is until the release of Nintendo's DSi and DSi XL which introduced the feature.

European and American customers may not have to wait too long for the release of the 3DS, however, with the current March release window for those territories expected to be narrowed down to a specific date next week.

Nintendo CEO Promises Continuous Stream of 3DS Releases

Quote :
Game consoles usually see a post launch software lull. But this won't happen with 3DS. Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata told Japan's Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper that plans are in place to make sure the 3DS gets a constant stream of software.

Said Iwata, "It's important that you be able to supply software with no pause. With the DS and Wii, following the titles that were released at launch, the momentum dropped when there was a gap in software releases. We're making plans so that this type of thing won't happen."

The 3DS is launching in Japan with eight games: Nintendogs + cats (available in three varieties), Winning Eleven 3DSoccer, Samurai Warriors Chronicle, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, Puzzle Bobble 3D, Ridge Racer 3D, Combat of the Dinosaur 3D and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.

We already know of two games that are due out shortly after launch in Japan Sega's Super Monkey Ball 3D will arrive on March 3. Tecmo Koei's Dead or Alive Dimensions will arrive on March 24.

Many of the games we sampled at Nintendo World, including Zelda Ocarina of Time, Steel Diver, Kid Icarus, and Pilot Wings looked pretty far along. With Iwata promising a constant software supply, perhaps we won't have to wait too long for these.
