Nintendo's 3DS launch lineup is finally announced for the UK

Finally Nintendo have released the list that a lot of us were waiting for, or at least I was, along with all the Nintendo fans out there, and that is the launch titles for the Nintendo 3DS in the UK. Sadly there are a lot of games missing from the list that a lot of soon to be 3DS owners were waiting for, but they can't release everything at once, especially if the games aren't actually finished yet.

You'll notice of the list there are actually three Nintendogs + Cats games being released, as they generally come in numbers, but other than those the only other Nintendo first party title is Pilotwings Resort. We've then got games from the likes of Capcom, EA, Konami, Namco Bandai, SEGA and Ubisoft. All giving us a nice variety of games to pick up on the launch of Nintendo's new console.

  • Pilotwings Resort
  • Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends
  • Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog & New Friends
  • Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
  • Samurai Warriors: Chronicles
  • The Sims 3
  • PES 2011 3D — Pro Evolution Soccer
  • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
  • Ridge Racer 3D
  • Super Monkey Ball 3D
  • Asphalt 3D
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell 3D
  • Rayman 3D

Still at two minds over buying the console I'm not so sure on if any of these games sway me over the edge, however if I had to pick the games I'd buy there would definitely be some umming over picking up Pilotwings Resort, a Nintendogs (because of the added cats) and Super Monkey Ball 3D as my main choices. Although I am looking forward to Resident Evil Mercenaries 3D, Steel Diver and of course Kid Icarus and Legend of Zelda: OoT, along with a whole host of other more obscure titles.

I am looking forward to seeing some more on Rayman 3D though, to see if it's worth picking up, although I was never a huge fan when I played Rayman 2 on the N64, as the original game was Rayman at his best. However if the console comes with the ARG games that's also a nice enticement for me still, especially after playing them over the weekend. Keep an eye on the Gamercast website for my upcoming second look at the 3DS, and see what I thought of some of its upcoming games.

The Nintendo 3DS is released on the 25th of March and has an RRP of £229.99 however you can find it up for pre-order on most sites between £195-£210.
