But as Microsoft and Sony rarely learn (look at the line up for Kinect, and back to the launch games for 360, PS2, PS3 and PSP) it's the games that matter. And what games! Let's look, and try to wipe that drool from your mouth.

Note: Unless otherwise stated, all the screenshots below are from the actual 3DS games. Yes, even the Resident Evil one.


  • Kid Icarus: Uprising (long-rumored, now coming!)

  • Animal Crossing
  • Mario Kart (of course, but where's Smash Bros for feck's sake?)

  • Nintendogs + Cats (I'm mightily surprised this isn't on Wii yet)
  • Pilotwings Resort
  • Starfox 64/Lylat Wars Remake (in 3D? Whoa!)
  • Paper Mario (instantly making the system a must-buy for me)

  • Steel Diver (an original title)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Remake (in 3D! Although with the 3DS' power I would've preferred Wind Waker)


  • DJ Hero 3D


  • Resident Evil: Revelations (a new, original Resident Evil that is portable! With the PSP game AWOL and the DS version pretty sweet, I'm looking forward to this)

This is an actual picture from the 3DS game, honest

  • Super Street Fighter 4 3D (holy ****, that will be enough for a lot of people)


  • FIFA Soccer
  • Madden NFL
  • The Sims 3 (a good solid trio there)


  • Rock Band? (the title is unconfirmed, but Harmonix doing a 3D Rock Band seems pretty certain)


  • Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D - The Naked Sample (seriously? MGS3 in portable form and 3D?!)

  • Pro Evolution Soccer (that and FIFA? Wow)
  • Contra (yay)
  • Frogger (the last title I expected to see! The first game I ever played, y'know)


  • Professor Layton & The Mask of Miracle (hooray, but hurry up with the damn translations of the other games Nintendo, we're still waiting on the last two! Although 3's out September apparently)


  • Ridge Racer (Ridge Racer!!)
  • Dragon Ball
  • Gundam (!)
  • Pac-Man & Galaga (another two bizarre old-school appearances)
  • Super Robot Wars


  • Sonic The Hedgehog (no ****, but what will it look like? If it's just the first game or - eek - the hated 360/PS3 game, no one will care)

Sonic 4 - we imagine the 3DS version will look similar

  • Super Monkey Ball (that's more like it! In 3D and with the analogue stick and tilt-sensors, this could be perfect)


  • Kingdom Hearts (you buying it now?)

  • Final Fantasy (if it's a VII Remake a lot of Sony fanboys will be crying)
  • Dragon Quest
  • Chocobo Racing 3D (we're going to get a lot of games with '3D' in the title, aren't we? Like 'Super' and '64' in the SNES and N64 eras)


  • Dead or Alive 3D (holy 3D bobbling bosoms Batman!)

  • Dynasty Warriors
  • Ninja Gaiden (the DS version was great, so expect this one to be too)
  • Samurai Warriors 3D (how is this different to Dynasty Warriors?)


  • de Blob 2
  • Kung Fu Panda: Kaboom of Doom
  • Marvel Super Hero Squad Infinity Gauntlet
  • The Penguins of Madagascar
  • Puss N Boots (you better start impressing soon THQ instead of the churned-out Dreamworks crap)
  • Saint's Row (ahhh that's better)

  • Assassin's Creed: Lost Legacy (a game where Ezio tracks down all the crap Lost couldn't be bothered to explain perhaps? Hope so!)
  • Battle of Giants: Dinosaur Strike
  • Driver Renegade (a portable Driver? Let's hope it's good!)
  • Hollywood 61 (??)
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (yes!)
  • Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory (triple yes!!!)


  • Batman (Brave And The Bold? Lego? Arkham Asylum? The Dark Knight? Who knows!)

However, this was the Bat-symbol used at the press conference, which is most synonymous with the Tim Burton film

  • LEGO (... something. We assume Harry Potter or Clone Wars)


  • Cubic Ninja


  • Etrian Odyssey
  • Shin Megami Tensei:
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona


  • Asphalt GT (because the last DS one was so well received...)


  • Bomberman (a full 3D one could be really cool)
  • Deca Sports
  • Kororinpa


  • BloodRayne: The Shroud (another BloodRayne game? Ick)
  • A Boy and His Blob (the Wii remake of the classic game was excellent, looking forward to this)

From the Wii version

  • Face Racers: Photo Finish
  • Lion's Pride: Adventures on the Serengeti
  • Martha Stewart (???)
  • WonderWorld Amusement Park (hear that scraping sound? Yes, we're reaching the bottom of this barrel now)


  • BOKUJYOUMONOGATARI 3D (gesundheit!) UPDATE: I've been informed that this is Harvest Moon! Excellent, another great game series to add the pile!


  • Crash City GP
  • Super Robo


  • Carnival Games (that's it? Screw you Take Two)


  • Lovely Lisa 3D (please be a porn game)
  • Naruto Shippuden Action

That's everything announced for now (isn't that ****ing enough? I'm going to buy half the games on here!), but as the momentum builds towards the release date - still unconfirmed by the way, but likely to be early next year - you can bet on a load more and plenty of specifics on the games here. Plus I'll be very surprised if a proper Mario (Sunshine perhaps) and Zelda game don't turn up on it, and inevitably a Call of Duty.

    Thanks for the summarizing all the goodness that is going to be the 3DS. This is going to be a launch not to miss! I know I've said it before but playing these games in 3D is going to be the coolest thing ever. The early games are looking and playing great. I can just imagine the shit developers will come up with throughout the lifecycle of this system. Nintendo is always innovating!
