Reports are out that GAME stores are calling customers who pre-ordered the 3DS to tell them the available Day-1 launch titles for the system. There are the 11 titles being mentioned:

  • Nintendogs + Cats (3 versions)
  • Super Monkey Ball 3D
  • Asphault 3D
  • Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars
  • Super Street Fighter IV 3D
  • Rayman 3D
  • Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
  • Splinter Cell
  • Pro Evolution Soccer

Not a bad list overall in terms of variety. Nintendogs + Cats and Super Monkey Ball 3D will appeal to the casual crowd. For the mature crowd there’s Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell. And then we have a fighter, a racing game, a couple of platformers, and a sports title.

What’s curious is the lack of first-party titles. Where’s Zelda, Kid Icarus, or Pilotwings? Hopefully those will be out in the weeks following. Nintendo shouldn’t wait too long before bringing out more of their own published titles to highlight the best of what the system can do.

Also keep in mind that this list is not confirmed by any means, nor do we have a list of North American launch titles at this point.
