Nintendo 3DS Will Launch By March 2011, Design Not Final

Nintendo's just confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS will launch in all major markets by March 31, 2011. No word on pricing or who - Japan, Europe or America - gets to play first. One more thing, the 3DS' design might change.

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime:

"You know typically, at an E3, our engineers are looking for feedback. You know, we have an army of Nintendo representatives out on our show floor talking to attendees, getting reactions to everything in the device: the depth slider, the buttons, the sliding pad that is, essentially, an analog-type stick. These are things that we're looking to get reaction to, including the overall button placement. When we get all that feedback, then we'll finalise the design"

Don't expect a big change from what we saw at E3. At most, maybe we'll get some different materials here or a new colour there. [IndustryGamers via Engadget]
