Nintendo 3DS UK game launch line-up

The games available on day one.

15 games will be available to buy for the Nintendo 3DS when it launches in the UK on 25th March.

They are:

  • Pilotwings Resort
  • Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever
  • Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog
  • Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle
  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
  • The Sims 3
  • PES 2011 3D
  • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
  • Ridge Racer 3D
  • Super Monkey Ball 3D
  • Samurai Warriors: Chronicles
  • Asphalt 3D
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
  • Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D
  • Rayman 3D

Four first-party Nintendo games make the cut: Pilotwings Resort and three different Nintendogs + Cats games.

The rest of the list is made up by third-party games. Nintendo is keen to emphasise the support from publishers such as Ubisoft and Capcom for its glasses-free 3D handheld.

The Nintendo 3DS is available to pre-order from most UK shops for between £200 and £220.
