Updated / 3DS priced at $250, launches March 27th in US, 25th in EU

Update: The Euro date is in as well: March 25th. No pricing from Nintendo, but HMV lists it for £229.99 in the UK.

Original story: The speculation stops here; Nintendo’s 3DS has an American release date and price.

The news came from the company’s press conference today, confirming that the system will retail at $249.99. It launches on March 27th 2011 (which rather oddly is a Sunday).

So there you have it, setup that pre-order and start ticking off the days; the DS’s successor is just over two months away.
