Europe and US likely to get the 3DS in Spring of 2011.

Nintendo said a while back that it will announce the release date for the Nintendo 3DS on Sept. 29, which is this Wednesday. The German Bild Zeitung (Via Kotaku) reported in their Sunday print edition that the 3DS would launch on November 11th in Japan. The Bild Zeitung has not yet published this report online. Not sure what the reason for this is. A November launch of the Nintendo 3DS has been already rumored earlier. It is expected that Nintendo follows its often used pattern of releasing new products first in Japan and then later in the rest of the world.

The 3DS will not be under your Christmas tree. Most likely you will have to wait until Spring 2011 unless Nintendo is surprising us on Wednesday. Nintendo unveiled the 3D portable console back in July.

The Nintendo 3DS features a 3.53-inch top 3D screen and a 3.02-inch bottom touch screen. It has three cameras – one inner and two outer – to deliver the 3D effect and take 3D pictures. It includes a motion sensor, a gyro sensor and even a Slide Pad that allows 360-degree analog input. The 3D screen of the 3DS has 800x240 pixel resolution (400 pixels are allocated for each eye to enable 3D viewing).
