3DS date, cost unveiled in September

Nintendo reveals all on the 29th - are Mar 2011 and $249 rumours true?

Nintendo has confirmed to Bloomberg Japan that it will finally reveal pricing and availability details for its upcoming 3DS handheld on September 29.

While the device was unveiled at E3 last month and Nintendo has stated it will be available in 2011, there has been no concrete confirmation of a global release.

The price, meanwhile, has seen only speculation thus far - with analysts predicting an RRP of $249-299.

Nintendo spokesman Yasushi Hiroshi Minagawa also told Bloomberg that the much-anticipated date and cost reveal would be made in Japan.
