While Nintendo are remaining tight-lipped about release details surrounding their formidable new handheld revealed at this year's E3, Nintendo 3DS, analysts have been quick to throw their educated guesses in the ring with comments from Lazard Capital Markets over at Gamasutra
suggesting Nintendo will release the device towards the end of this year in Japan, and the rest of the world early-to-mid 2011. Nintendo did say they would bring the handheld to market before the end of their financial year in 2011, and they're known for releasing new hardware in Japan first, and usually around December.
As far as pricing goes, they have 3DS releasing at US$249-$299. EB Australia lists 3DS in pre-order form at AU$348 which is roughly inline with the US$299 price-point.
Of course we'll be chasing Nintendo of Australia for any info they can give us, so stay tuned for any and all info regarding Nintendo's new handheld, including our very own deeper hands-on from the show floor coming soon.
