Get Your Nintendo 3DS Release Dates Here

3DS owners are going to have a lot to choose from in "spring 2011."

3DS has something for everyone!

Nintendo and its third party cronies showed a bunch of games at the Nintendo Conference 2010 press event a couple of days back. So which of the games are going to be available for purchase on the system's stock-destroying February 26 launch date?

Unfortunately, no one actually announced final release dates for their games. All games were flagged with one of Spring 2011, Summer 2011, TBA 2011 or just a general TBA.

If the andriasang.com release calendar were actually being diligently updated, here's what the 3DS section would look like now:


  • Nintendogs + Cats (Nintendo)
  • Pilotwings Resort (Nintendo)
  • Steel Diver (Nintendo)
  • Zelda Ocarina of Time (Nintendo)
  • Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (Capcom)
  • Pro Baseball Spirits (Konami)
  • Ridge Racer 3D (Namco Bandai)
  • Samurai Warriors Chronicle (Tecmo Koei)
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask (Level-5)
  • Shanghai 3D Cube (Sunsoft)
  • Runabout for Nintendo 3DS (Rocket Company)
  • Cubic Ninja (AQ Interactive)
  • Fish On (ASCII Media Works)


  • Earthpedia (Gakken)

TBA 2011

  • Kid Icarus (Nintendo)
  • Medalot for Nintendo 3DS (Rocket Company)


  • Star Fox 64 3D (Nintendo)
  • Animal Crossing (Nintendo)
  • Paper Mario (Nintendo)
  • Mario Kart (Nintendo)
  • Chocobo Racing 3D (Square Enix)
  • Resident Evil Revelations (Capcom)
  • Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D (Capcom)
  • Dead or Alive Dimensions (Tecmo Koei)
  • 3D Beauty Clock (Beauty Clock -- not officially announced)

It's likely that the "spring" release time frame is just placeholder for all the launch games, so we can probably expect all the spring games to be released at or around the time of the system's February launch.
