18 launch titles for Nintendo 3DS

With 18 launch day titles and a tital of 30 games launching by early June, the Nintendo 3DS truly features something for everyone – when the system launches on March 27th 2011, gamers will be able to choose from a steady and diverse stream of games of all kinds.

When you wake up on March 27th and head off to your local store to pickup the new Nintendo 3DS you will be able to choose from the following Nintendo-published games:

  • Pilotwings Resort, an aerial adventure featuring airplanes, hang gliders and rocket belts. Players soar above tropical Wuhu Island in 3D as they complete missions or snap pictures.
  • Steel Diver, a submarine game that involves strategy and combat. The 3D visuals give players the sensation that they are looking into a miniature aquarium as they control the sub’s speed, depth and pitch, and fire torpedoes.
  • nintendogs + cats, a game that lets players interact with realistic puppies – and kittens – in a variety of fun ways.

Meanwhile as we’ve seen over the weeks there are many third-party publishers with a slate of games ready to go on March 27. These include:

* Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition from CAPCOM

As you can see, UBISOFT and EA are offering a particularly strong raft of titles for the platform.

Further Nintendo 3DS games in development for release during 2011 from Nintendo include The  Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DStar Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising and a new installment in the  Mario Kart series.
