GameGears Set To Retail Nintendo 3DS 18 March 2011 Under £200

Nintendo’s highly anticipated 3DS has been seen on GameGears sale pages with a RRP of £199.99, not only this but an advertised release date of March 18 is also listed.

Now while we have reported before on Nintendo’s latest 3D handheld, our thoughts were similar to that of Pocket-lint who expected a January 19 preview in Amsterdam, before the likes of us in Europe got our hands on it late February.

Well it seems as though Japan are being teased with a possible February 26 release which would mean that our wait could be longer than we thought. Prices for Japan are said to be roughly 25,000 yen, which equates to around £189, so GameGears listings seem pretty well on the money.

Nintendo’s World event in Tokyo set for January will pull the lid off a lot more details, but for now we have seen reports of games available through the next gen DS. Titles such as; Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 3D, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Ridge Racer 3D are just a few. Check out Pocket-lint for a run down of top games.

We will keep you updated after the Europe preview event on January 19 so stay tuned. Are you excited about the introduction of 3D into pocket gaming? Give us your thoughts.
