Nintendo Reveals 3DS First Look Titles

The Nintendo 3DS handheld release date is March 27 in the U.S., and will cost $249.99. The glasses-free 3D device will come in two shades at launch: "Cosmo Black" or "Aqua Blue." In the launch “window”, between March and June, there will be 25 different games available, including these first-party games: Pilot Wings Resort, Nintendogs + Cats, Steel Diver, Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Paper Mario and Star Fox 64 3D. (Correction: Earlier, we erroneously reported these games as "launch titles." They're actually due out sometime between March 27 and E3 in June.)

The 3DS will come with a game called Face Raiders installed, in which you take images of your face and add them to a shooting gallery.

The $249.99 price is a bit cheaper than I had thought, and the launch window line-up of games is pretty impressive -- who doesn't want to play 3D Pilot Wings? -- so I'm pretty impressed. What about you? Are you going to be lining up to purchase a 3DS?
