Nintendo just announced a February 26 ship date in Japan for ¥25,000 (about $298). It’ll then land in the US and Europe in March for an undisclosed amount. Launch colors are aqua blue or cosmo black. At a press event in Japan, Nintendo demonstrated the ability to take your picture using the 3DS’ front-facing camera and then automatically converting the image into a Mii — you can edit it too using Mii Studio on the 3DS. You can even merge two photos into a single image if you choose. Images can then be exported as QR codes in wireless “tag mode” or as a file to the bundled 2GB SD card.
Nintendo also announced a special edition Super Mario DSi LL (no hardware changes) set to launch for ¥18,000 in Japan on October 28th. It also confirmed that a Wii Remote Plus is in development (it’ll be announced at a date some time in the future) and a partnership with Fuji TV that will trial 3D video streaming to Nintendo’s new handheld. Finally, a virtual console-style store was show serving up downloadable Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games to the 3DS.
