Reggie Fils-Aime Leaks 3DS Release Date



In an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show, Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime indicated when we'll see the 3DS in North America.

Reggie Fils-Aime was on the Jimmy Fallon show this week to promote the Resident Evil [http://www.amazon.com/Wii-Sports-Resort-Black-Nintendo/dp/B003EH0BQ4/ref=sr_tr_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1277589111&sr=8-1] in 2010.

While Fallon was shooting peanuts and getting Diddy Kong's head bashed in, he said that the Nintendo DS was his "favorite system out there" and expressed interest in the 3DS. Fallon asked when it was coming out, and Fils-Aime replied: "It's coming out next year." The comment was made somewhat in passing, so there isn't an indication if this means it'll be out next year in North America only or if Japan will be lucky enough to see it this holiday season. Considering how shows like Fallon's are rehearsed, it was probably planned, but either way now we know when to generally expect the system.

Fils-Aime then whipped out a 3DS and got in a nice jab at Sony, saying he knew Fallon "did a little 3D yesterday," referring to a 3D demo of watch the video [http://www.amazon.com/Killzone-3-Playstation/dp/B002I0K6DG/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1277589987&sr=1-1] of the Killzone 3 demo, Fils-Aime might have missed how Fallon nearly messed himself, but hey that's what these guys do.

Fallon also really loved the 3DS, saying: "Oh my gosh, you've done it! Of course Nintendo would do it!" I hope to have the same reaction when I get my hands on a 3DS in 2011.

The presenter of that show is so fake it's painful to watch. He's obviously been told what to say and has no interest in video games whatsoever.

I agree with above, this obviously looked like faked enthusiasm.

Either way, 2011? You know I don't have patience, especially when kick-ass games like Gears of War 3 comes out in april 2011? Still, this 3DS technology is fucking amazing and it's still in production, imagine how awesome it will be if they paid much attention to detail.

"How do I jump?" "Press A"

Goddamn...he's supposed to be a Nintendo fan?

Donkey Kong remake looks like rubbish. Coop is fine, but have we really only come this far in 15 or so years?

C'mon.

Can't wait to get my hands on a 3DS and see what it's like.

Wait a sec....Fils-Aime, is that French for paedophilia?

You should have seen when he was interviewing Cliffy B when he announced Gears 3... he had a couple of guests that he was obviously interested in and then Cliffy B comes on and he just starts looking bored and gives him about half as much time as his other guests...

But that's both a shame and a blessing. I want to play it as soon as I can, but at least now I'll have more time to save up.

EDIT: Ugh... he heard a rumor that there was a 3D Nintendo DS coming out soon? You mean the one that they spend a quarter of their E3 press conference talking about?

Actually Fallon loves games. He expressed genuine surprise when he saw Killzone in 3D. He has celebrities on all the time (he played Tiger Woods on Wii golf and beat him). Also if you don't remember CliffyB debuted Gears of War 3 on his show

I don't mind waiting till next year. I recently got a Gameboy Micro and there are several Advance games I want to buy and play before this is released. Besides, it gives me time to save up for it.

Wow......DKC Returns looks great!
I feel good about Retro Studios doing this game.

As for the news about the 3DS.

This will give me the time i need to amass the small fortune ill need for it and the plethora of games i will get at launch.
