We didn't get a list of Day One releases for the Nintendo 3DS at last night's launch festivities, and equally today we're still anxiously waiting by our inbox for that all-important launch-day manifest.
While we wait though, we can ponder, and thanks to Nintendo of Europe, said pondering might come in pretty damn close to the actual local results when they arrive, as the European official 3DS launch list has been revealed (thanks Kotaku
Here's what the Euro Trash-Bags will have on launch day for Nintendo 3DS:
- nintendogs + cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends (Nintendo)
- nintendogs + cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends (Nintendo)
- nintendogs + cats: French Bulldog & New Friends (Nintendo)
- Pilotwings Resort (Nintendo)
- Asphalt 3D (Ubisoft)
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars (Ubisoft)
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (Ubisoft)
- Rayman 3D (Ubisoft)
- The Sims 3 (EA)
- Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (capcom)
- PES 2011 3D (Konami)
- Ridge Racer 3D (Namco Bandai)
- Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (Tecmo Koei)
- Super Monkey Ball 3D (SEGA)
- LEGO Star Wars III The Clone Wars (LucasArts)
That's a whopping 13 games at launch (if you only get one nintendogs + cats), and I'd put money on at least 90% of this list being exactly the same as what we'll see, if not a few more. Of course Nintendo have plenty of aces up their sleeve post-launch with the likes of Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Steel Diver, Mario Kart 3D, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario and my personal favourite, The legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
It's going to be a busy year.
