Australia Misses Out on Steel Diver and Pilotwings at 3DS Launch
Posted by James Newton
Titles vaguely announced
Nintendo has announced its own titles that'll be available with the machine on 31st March, and it's a disappointing sight – European and North American launch game Pilotwings Resort and North American launch submarine outing Steel Diver are both absent, leaving Nintendogs + Cats and Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition as the two Nintendo titles at launch. It's worth remembering Nintendo of Australia has stated the release dates for Pilotwings and Steel Diver will be “confirmed at a later date”, meaning they may well squeeze into the launch window after all.
There is some good news though – Nintendo has confirmed the recommended retail price of 3DS software will stand at $69.95 AUS, the same price as regular DS software.
Third party software is yet to be officially announced, but many retailers are pegging a similar line-up to Europe, which goes like this:
- Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
- Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog & New Friends
- Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends
- Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends
- Ridge Racer 3D
- Samurai Warriors: Chronicles
- The Sims 3
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D
- Super Monkey Ball 3D
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D
- Rayman 3D
- Asphalt 3D
- Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars
