Europe Gets Nintendo 3DS A Few Days Before North America [Update]


DSC_0082 If you’re in Europe, you can pick up a Nintendo 3DS on March 25, two days before the handheld launches in North America. How much does it cost? You’ll have to check your local retailer because Nintendo of Europe didn’t announce a price.


This is probably a good time to mention, during Nintendo of America’s conference focus groups that used the Nintendo 3DS deemed the handheld’s price to be worth $300-$400 (yikes!). The Nintendo 3DS will retail for $249.99 in North America.


Update: Nintendo of Europe said to check local retailer for the price, so we did. UK retailer Game lists the price of the Nintendo 3DS as £229.99 ($368). Play is a tad less at £219.99 ($352).
