Official Nintendo 3DS launch date: March 25th

Nintendo held a press conference today where it announced the official release date for the 3DS handheld in the UK.

And the date to mark on your calendar is March 25th, not the 18th as some had previously suggested.

No price was confirmed for the handheld gaming console which does 3D without the need for any glasses. The Telegraph reports that Nintendo said retailers have been given a trade price, and it’s up to individual outlets how much they sell it for.

HMV has it up at £230, smack-bang in the middle of our last guess which was £200 to £250. Amazon hasn’t put a price up yet, and neither has The Hut or Play, but we expect their price tags will be along soon enough.

It seems that the hopes of those who wanted a £200 price (or even sub-£200) have been dashed, though, from the looks for HMV’s stance.
