The one thing missing from all the Nintendo 3DS information was the games that we are going to be playing. The latest Nintendo handheld which is boasting it’s 3D ability without the use of glasses is going to have a total of 18 launch titles.
Here are the first party games available on launch day:
Pilotwings Resort, an aerial adventure featuring airplanes, hang gliders and rocket belts. Players soar above tropical Wuhu Island in 3D as they complete missions or snap pictures. Steel Diver, a submarine game that involves strategy and combat. The 3D visuals give players the sensation that they are looking into a miniature aquarium as they control the sub’s speed, depth and pitch, and fire torpedoes. nintendogs + cats, a game that lets players interact with realistic puppies – and kittens – in a variety of fun ways. There are three versions of the software, each with different starting breeds: French bulldog, toy poodle and golden retriever. But in each version players can unlock and enjoy more than 20 different breeds.
Yes, there’s only 3. Here’s the more extensive(and better) list of third party games:
Super Street Fighter® IV 3D Edition from CAPCOM The Sims™ 3 from EA Madden NFL Football from EA SPORTS Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D from Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. LEGO® Star Wars® III: The Clone Wars™ from LucasArts™ RIDGE RACER® 3D from NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. Super Monkey Ball™ 3D from SEGA BUST-A-MOVE UNIVERSE™ from Square-Enix, Inc.

Asphalt™ 3D from UBISOFT Combat of Giants™: Dinosaurs 3D from UBISOFT Rayman® 3D from UBISOFT Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Shadow Wars from UBISOFT
