Nintendo confirms 3DS day one game launches

Nintendo has just published a list of the 15 games that will be available on the day the 3DS lands in UK stores - 25 March.

We knew that over 30 games for the 3DS were going to hit the shops during the "launch window", but it's only now that we know for sure the titles that will be available on day one.

And those 15 games are: Pilotwings Resort, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, The Sims 3, PES 2011 3D, Lego Star War III The Clone Wars, Ridge Racer 3D, Super Monkey Ball 3D, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles, Asphalt 3D, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D, Rayman 3D and three variations of Nintendogs + cats.

Something for everyone really - hardcore games, family games, sports games - the only thing missing really is a Mario or Zelda title, but they'll both be along soon enough.

Nintendo also confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Mario Kart, Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, Steel Diver, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Madden NFL, Crush 3D, Thor: God of Thunder, Dead Or Alive: Dimensions, James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes, Driver Renegade 3D, Rabbids 3D and Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D will be available in Europe 1 week after the launch of the 3DS.
