Nintendo 3DS event set for January 19th

Invites sent out for US Nintendo 3DS showcase

3DS UK release date and pricing to be revealed next month?

Nintendo is set show off the 3DS in New York on January 19th as the first formal invites for a special preview event are sent out.

COO of Nintendo of America Reggie Fils-Aime is set to give a presentation at the press-only event which will also include "hands-on game play" and "demos" of the glasses-free 3D gaming device.

A similar event is set to take place in Holland on the same day for European folk to get a closer look at the 3DS and hopefully find out more about launch titles.

The 3DS is primed to launch in Japan first on February 26th 2011 with a price tag of 25,000 yen (£194), but a US and European 3DS launch date has yet to be confirmed by Nintendo. We fully expect all those issues to be cleared up on January 19th.
