Nintendo Confirms 3DS Launch Titles, Including Zelda and Street Fighter

Nintendo has confirmed that the 3DS handheld, the first gaming device to deliver three dimensional experiences without any glasses, will be launched on February 26, 2011 on the Japanese market and now the company has also unveiled the video games which will accompany the hardware and will attract long time Nintendo fans to it.

The ten titles which will arrive on the same date as the Nintendo 3DS in Japan are:

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D from Nintendo

Nintendogs + Cats from Nintendo

Pilotwings Resort (working title) from Nintendo

Pro Baseball Spirits from Konami

Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle from Level 5

Ridge Racer 3D from Namco Bandai

Samurai Warriors Chronicle from Tecmo Koei

Steel Diver from Nintendo

Super Monkey Ball (working title) from Sega

Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition from Capcom

Later in 2011 the platform is also set to get Kid Icarus: Uprising from Nintendo and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D - The Naked Sample from Konami

There are other games confirmed to be in development for the Nintendo 3DS which do not yet have launch dates and will probably arrive beginning with the second half of 2011:

Chocobo Racing 3D from Square Enix

Animal Crossing from Nintendo

Dead or Alive: Dimensions from Tecmo Koei

Paper Mario (working title) from Nintendo

Mario Kart (working title) from Nintendo

The line up seems quite strong, with a lot of the characters and story lines that are associated with Nintendo platforms set to move to three dimensions and to the 3DS device.

The presence of titles like Resident Evil, Dead or Alive, Metal Gear Solid and Samurai Warriors also means that more hardcore gamers might be interested to pick up the 3DS and titles created specifically for it to see what it has to offer despite the 25,000 Yen, which is the equivalent of about 300 dollars, to see what it has to offer.
