Fils-Aime: No 3DS in 2010

Best throw those hopes for a 2010 Nintendo 3DS launch that rumor earlier in the week gave right out the window; while demoing the new Donkey Kong on Jimmy Fallon last night (video below), Nintendo of America boss man Reggie Fils-Aime gave the 3D-enabled handheld a 2011 launch window.

The earlier rumor originated from a UK retail source and Fallon is a US show, granted, but it seems unlikely that EU/NA releases would fall into different years. Launching in Japan earlier is nothing new for Nintendo however, so a 2010 launch there may well happen; news for Tokyo Game Show 2010, perhaps.
