Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of America have confirmed today that over 30 titles will be released on 3DS before E3 in June.

The news follows just-finished press events in Amsterdam and New York.

Out of the lot, however, Ubisoft is probably the strongest third-party publisher for the handheld’s launch period, with president Yves Guillemot confirming at the publisher’s European event that it would release eight of its own titles at the launch period.

The titles, first and third party, mentioned for the launch period by both Nintendo on the European and US sides include:

  • Animal Crossing
  • Asphalt 3D
  • Bust a Move Universe
  • Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D
  • Crush 3D
  • Dead or Alive: Dimensions
  • Dual Pen Sports
  • Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
  • Madden NFL Football
  • Mario Kart
  • Nintendogs + Cats
  • Paper Mario
  • PilotWings Resort
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
  • Rabbids: Travel in Time
  • Rayman 3D
  • Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
  • Ridge Racer 3D
  • Samuari Warriors: Chronicles
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked
  • Star Fox 64 3D
  • Steel Diver
  • Super Monkey Ball 3D
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  • The SIms 3
  • Thor: God of Thunder
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D

3DS launches for $249.99 in the US on March 27 and in Europe on March 25. It’s expected to be priced around the region of £219-£229.

    When is this ‘Launch Period’ that they talk about? Some of those titles didn’t appear on the day 1 list a while back.

    @10 – It’s not really specified, but I’m guessing it’s the same timeline between launch day and E3 that Nintendo mentioned

    Johnny, I think you’ve got your wires crossed. The likes of Animal Crossing, Paper Mario and Mario Kart won’t be out in the launch window.

    @11 well it seems the locking of games is case by case so the american game may work on an eu 3ds

    To be honest, I would rather but Kinect and a few games, than dish out £220 on a games console who’s appeal will probably wear off. But Ocarina of Time 3D might manage to change that…
