The wait for Kid Icarus: Uprising looms over us all

The discussion of whether Nintendo's 3DS will reach one of the Western territories before Christmas has been a back-and-forth affair. Will it, won't it, will it, won't it? Well, it won't.

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as showing the world his incredible skill at Donkey Kong Country Returns, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime announced the console would be launching next year before whipping out a unit to impress Mr Fallon.

Here's a short video of Reggie's appearance, showing a little more about the upcoming DK adventure as well as Reggie's casual talk-show look. Nice.

Are you disappointed to hear that the console will not be available in the next six months, or are you pleased it's getting the polished required to make it fulfil its clear potential?
