Now, be advised that “launch window” refers to the three-month window after the launch of the 3DS itself, so some of these games may not see the light of day until June. That’s just a worst-case scenario, though; we’ve got a solid release table for March already from some publishers.
Most of these games don’t have set-in-stone release dates yet, but we can rest assured that they’ll arrive pretty soon. Of course, these probably aren’t all of the titles that will come out in those three months (you’ll note we’re a few shy of 30), so there may be more announcements in the future that the publishers aren’t ready to make yet.
Nintendo’s list of launch window titles include, depressingly, only Pilotwings Resort, Steel Diver and Nintendogs + Cats (no Ocarina 3D or Kid Icarus…).
Ubisoft has pledged six games: Rayman 3D, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D, Asphalt 3D, Rabbids 3D, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes and Driver Renegade. Temco Koei’s got Dead or Alive Dimensions and Samurai Warriors Chronicles, Capcom’s got Street Fighter and Resident Evil: Mercenaries, Altus has Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, Squeenix will release Bust-a-Move Universe.
Other announced launch window titles include Madden NFL Football and The Sims 3 from Electronic Arts, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D by Konami, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars from LucasArts,
Super Monkey Ball 3D, Crush 3D, & Thor: God of Thunder by Sega, as well as a couple titles from Namco Bandai: Ridge Racer 3D & Dual Pen Sports.
You may commence the wailing and gnashing of teeth.
