Coming soon?

A newspaper in Germany known as BILD, which has earned itself a reputation as a notorious spreader of rumors, has hinted that the 3DS will go on sale in Europe during the first quarter of 2011. The console will supposedly launch with a new Mario Kart and Professor Layton game, as well as the much-anticipated remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The article also mentions a Japanese release date of November 11, 2010, an idea which makes the rumor sound fairly holey.

The suggested price was  €200 (£169.99, $270).

This information is just a rumor, and should be regarded as such. However, you won’t have to wait long at all to find out if these rumors contain a hint of truth. According to Bloomberg, Nintendo will announce the release date and retail price of the 3DS on September 29th – that’s tomorrow!
