Well, we’ve been waiting to hear whether our top picks for 3DS would make it out on-launch for some time now, and Nintendo’s finally confirmed who made the cut – at least for Japan. Don’t hold your breath, though – the Day One list has only eight titles on it. We can be pretty sure there’ll be more to follow and probably a larger list for the worldwide launch in March, but suffice to say that you should prepare to be disappointed.
The launch titles are as follows:
- Nintendogs + cats
- Winning Eleven 3D Soccer
- Combat of Giants Dinosaur 3D
- Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
- Samurai Warriors Chronicle
- Puzzle Bobble 3D
- Ridge Racer 3D
- Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
Prices for these games were also confirmed, but without any real idea of a software cost comparison between Japan and other regions we should really wait until the worldwide events later this month rather than risk inducing a heart attack by speculating. Japanese handheld games tend to be priced drastically higher than in the West, so bear that in mind going forward.
