According to German newspaper Bild, Nintendo is set to announce a November 11 launch for 3DS in Japan.

It also mentions a spring 2011 launch for Europe for the price of €200.

Mario Kart 3D, Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle are also mentioned as launch titles for the European launch.

Nintendo’s said in the past 3DS will be in all major regions by the end of FY2011.

Any details for North America seems unlikely, judging by comments NoA gave over the weekend.

A November 20 Japanese release was previously mentioned by an ex-employee of peripheral maker Factory Keys.

We’re set to hear a Japanese release date of the hardware at least this Wednesday when Nintendo holds a special press event for the system, which its UK arm says will “discuss launch timings, price and shipment details.”
