There was exciting news this morning for us North American folks who finally learned that the 3DS will be for sale starting March 27 for $249. The release date itself wasn’t much of a surprise, given Nintendo’s penchant for doing big releases on Sundays, and the 27th being the last Sunday in March. As for the price, I think it was a big plus for the company to keep price under $250.

We also learned quite a bit more at this morning’s live event. First of all, it will launch in 2 colors: Cosmo Black and Aqua Blue.


Included with the system will be a 2GB SD card and a charging cradle. We’ll also see some packed in software with the 3DS such as the Augmented Reality games, a Mii Maker, an Activity Log, and a Pedometer application. The device will also come with an enhanced Internet browser and a 3D video player for various content.
