Nintendo 3DS launching March 27, 2011

Nintendo plans on launching its 3DS -- the handheld video game system featuring 3-D technology with no glasses -- on March 27, 2011 and it will sell for $249.99. Thirty games will be available for the 3DS between the device's launch and this June's Electronic Entertainment Expo. See for the entire list, and other details.

The device will be available in either Cosmo Black or Aqua Blue and will come preloaded with a handful of games such as Face Raiders, which takes advantage of the 3DS cameras.

Among the more interesting features is the 3DS' ability to double as a pedometer. Players collect coins based on the number of steps taken, and can use them to collect content in compatible games or applications.

The dual-screen handheld features a lower touch-screen and an upper 3-D screen with a slider to adjust the 3-D effects. It also includes an inside camera and two outside cameras to take 3-D photos, as well as built-in motion and gyro sensors.

The 3DS will also add a Circle Pad for 360-degree motion. This should make titles such as Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV remake for the device a bit easier to control.
