Play.com's November 2010 release date for Dragon Ball (3DS), which had suggested the 3DS handheld would be out this year, is "estimated", the online retailer has told Eurogamer.

According to Play.com, Dragon Ball (3DS) is due out on 19th November 2010 in the UK, which suggests the 3DS console will be released on or before that date.

However, Play.com told Eurogamer the online retailer has only "heard that's the estimated release date".

Play.com wouldn't reveal what organisation it heard the estimated date from, be it Dragon Ball publisher Namco Bandai or 3DS manufacturer Nintendo.

Play.com also lists Gundam (3DS) with a 25th March 2011 release date.

Nintendo hasn't priced or dated the 3DS. Indeed Nintendo has repeatedly dismissed recent retailer 3DS pricing and release date listings as "pure speculation".

However, Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime has gone on the record to say the handheld will be out in all "major markets" by 1st April 2011.
