Newspaper Report Puts Nintendo 3DS Japan Launch At November 11

Germany’s Bild newspaper says that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in Japan on November 11. And who are we to question almighty Bild, the paper that recently asked how it’s supposed to be able to tell the difference between two different Japanese footballers? For real.

The report is black-and-white: on November 11 Nintendo will release the system in Japan. A European launch is set for springtime, 2011, with a price of €200, which is right around $270.

Launch titles are penciled in as Mario Kart 3DS, Professor Layton and the Mask of the Miracle (as if I know what that is), and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Us folk in North America will have to wait early in the new year.

Mind you, all of these dates are pure speculation; Nintendo is to host a press conference tomorrow which should clear some of this up.
