The 3DS is just literally a few days away from launch. The execs know themselves that their hardware is only as good as their software. Recently, they revealed the first batch of games that will be coming to their 3D handheld. How did they fare well in the hands of reviewers?

 

 

 

 

Japanese magazine Famitsu was one such reviewer, and even before the 3DS hit the market, they already sent out what they thought about the games coming out for it. You'd be glad to know that most of the titles did get recent ratings, although none of them got a perfect score.

 

 

 

The top game, however, which garnered a 38/40 score, was Nintendogs + Cats. Coming in at a not-so-close second would at 34/40 would be Samurai Warriors Chronicles.

Nintendo's 3DS handheld officially sees the light of retail day on February 26th in Japan, March 25th in Europe, and March 27th in the US. We're expecting long queues and big events to herald its arrival, and of course, the much-needed jolt back into the heart of good ol' handheld competition.

 

 

 

After this, it's going to be Sony's turn to make their move. That should make things even more exciting once again.
