Nintendo Reveals Launch Day Lineup of 18 Nintendo 3DS Games
Posted on February 22, 2011
Nintendo has revealed a launch day lineup of 18 games for the Nintendo 3DS. The 3D portable gaming system debuts on March 27th. There will also be more games launching after March 27th and Nintendo expects there to be over 30 Nintendo 3DS games available before the E3 Expo in early June.
The following Nintendo-published 3Ds games, each available at a suggested retail price of $39.99, will be available on March 27th:
- Pilotwings Resort, an aerial adventure featuring airplanes, hang gliders and rocket belts. Players soar above tropical Wuhu Island in 3D as they complete missions or snap pictures.
- Steel Diver, a submarine game that involves strategy and combat. The 3D visuals give players the sensation that they are looking into a miniature aquarium as they control the sub's speed, depth and pitch, and fire torpedoes.
- Nintendogs + Cats, a game that lets players interact with realistic puppies - and kittens - in a variety of fun ways. There are three versions of the software, each with different starting breeds: French bulldog, toy poodle and golden retriever. But in each version players can unlock and enjoy more than 20 different breeds.
Other Nintendo 3DS games in the works for 2011 from Nintendo include The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising and new installments in the Mario Kart series.
