3DS details revealed at Nintendo World

“Nintendo World” is on now. This is the Japanese leg of Nintendo’s get-to-know-the-3DS world tour, which will continue with an event held for the west January 19th.

The 3DS will come packaged with (at least in Japan) a 2GB SD card, 6 augmented reality cards, and include built-in software for the 3D cameras, Miis, and augmented reality games.

The most shocking news out of all this so far is the system’s battery life. 3-5 hours for 3DS games, although that may depend on where you’ve got the 3D slider positioned. The system will last 5-8 hours playing regular DS games, and take about 3 hours to charge.

Games set for the Japanese launch window include Winning Eleven 3DSoccer, Blazblue Continuum Shift II, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, Biohazard Mercenaries 3D, Dead or Alive Dimensions, Ocarina of Time 3D, nintendogs +cats, and Pilotwings Resort. Games to follow in the summer period include Project LovePlus, MGS Snake Eater, Kid Icarus, and StarFox 64 3D. Yet more games have less firm release dates, including Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

Screenshots of Ocarina of Time 3D show promise. The game looks distinctly cleaner from its original form. No word on added content, which is concerning.
