Nintendo 3DS has potentially amazing, wallet-crippling launch line-up, our pennies start to weep

Well kiss our grits and call us Sally May. We’ve already been told the Nintendo 3DS launch date and price, but now we’ve got a pretty firm idea of what games will be accompanying the system from day one, too. Below, you’ll find a video of the launch line-up, which includes The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3DS. Safe to say, next March is going to be pretty harsh on our impoverished wallets.

If all the games in the above video really do make the launch we’re screwed. C’mon…

Kid Icarus Uprising
Mario Kart 3DS
Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D: The Naked Sample
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Pilotwings Resorts
Paper Mario 3DS
Resident Evil Revelation
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries
Star Fox 64 3D
Animal Crossing 3DS

Above: Damn you Nintendo! DAMN YOU!

Yeah, if even half of these live up to their potential, we’ll be in organ-harvesting territory. We’ve offered them before, but if anyone’s in need of some semi abused livers, we’ll gladly listen to offers.

    What is there about the hype that you don't get? It's 3D-vision gaming with out the use for those stupid glasses. Depending on the success of this, we may see TV's using the same technology and Sony will be boned because what THEY are working on requires the use of the glasses to work. Not only is it 3D-vision gaming, but its on a Handheld. system.

    Aside from Kid Icarus and Animal Crossing, those are quite literally the games I wanna get at launch!
  • FNG - September 29, 2010 7:52 p.m.

    BTW, I doubt I'll ever use this in a car, I'd probably puke all over ze place.

  • shadowreaper72 - September 29, 2010 7:45 p.m.

    Holy Shit!!!!! A Nintendo gaming system thats actually worth buying? Im shocked!
  • sutrebla15 - September 29, 2010 6:27 p.m.

    *Looks at price* Profound sadness!
  • BonafideMyth - September 29, 2010 6:14 p.m.

    I'm sure many adult americans will shell out, but I doubt parents will. I can guess many parents will say "How many DS's(DSie?) do you already have. I don't find $300 to be worth it for something I'll only use in long car rides and trips but that's just me. I do wonder how the 3D looks while moving.

    How much are kidneys worth these days? The human body can survive with only one of those, right? /joking
  • GameManiac - September 29, 2010 5:34 p.m.

    Shit! Thank god my mom gets her 4-digit tax income at February, and I'll have at least $400 by its release, meaning that I can get the 3DS AND at least 2 games. Kid Icarus: Uprising and Ocarina of Time 3D!
  • Clovin64 - September 29, 2010 5:11 p.m.

    Damn, I just got a DS about a month ago. I''l wait till a remake of Final Fantasy V or VI gets announced for 3DS.
  • Bawheidbob - September 29, 2010 4:49 p.m.

    If games weigh in at £30+ i might have to think about giving it a miss. Might
