Nintendo 3DS launching with 18 games in the US

The long-awaited Nintendo 3DS portable gaming console will finally reach our shores next month, and according to reports online, there will be 18 games available at launch. Not a very impressive number, in fact we would say decent at best – but with hit titles such as Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, Madden NFL Football, and Rayman 3D, gamers should find themselves busy until later this year when blockbuster games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D arrive. Nintendo has also mentioned that there will be at least 30 games available by early June. Games will cost $39.99 each – a possible deciding factor in how well they sell, considering that consumers have become accustomed to paying $1-$10 for fully featured games on their mobile devices. Then again, they don’t offer the same immersive gaming experience that the 3DS is touted to bring, so we’ll see. The Nintendo 3DS will retail for $249.99 and be in stores on March 27. Is anyone counting down the days until March 27 yet?
