Rumor: 3DS Release Date Is March 11, 2011

Until yesterday, the 3DS was not listed with a release outside of Japan. However, according to a reader of the Official Nintendo Magazine, there is a date listed for the European and U.S. releases! The date listed is March 11th of next year, which would make sense given the February 26th release in Japan.

The reader over at who caught this interesting detail acknowledges that it’s possible this could be an estimation, a misprint, or some other type of error. But if it’s not, this is big news.

The folks over at VGTribune have uploaded scans of the magazine article as proof, and are supposed to be uploading a video as more proof later on.
