Come March 27th in the States, what few Nintendo 3Dses not pre-ordered will disappear from store shelves with the kind of expected records usually reserved for Apple products. The launch lineup, long a mystery for the West, has finally been detailed by the Big N, and will include three first party titles – Pilotwings Resort, Nintendogs + cats, and Steel Diver. In addition to the Nintendo lineup, over a dozen third-party titles have been announced for the handheld (details after the jump.)

The portable powerhouse will also contain several pre-loaded applications, including six augmented reality cards, a Mii Maker, and Face Raiders, a manipulation tool for photos of the human face. All full release games will cost $40, the system itself selling for $250.

Disappointed to not see the Ocarina of Time remake listed? Or is this still the best launch lineup in recent memory? Dish below, E-Gs!

One thought on “Nintendo Details North American 3DS Launch Titles”

  1. This lineup sucks. I’m especially disappointed in the first party games. Nintendo must not give a shit if they aren’t devoting a Mario game to this platform. Hell if the platform was that good I would think a special 25th anniversary Zelda remake in 3D would be a game changer.

    This smells like Sony just expecting people to buy it because it has Playstation on it.

    I am excited to see the 3rd party support but when Sega has the best game on a Nintendo launch something is seriously wrong.
