German paper puts date and price on 3DS

Bild says 3DS on Japanese shelves November 11, Europe in Spring, 2011 at €200

German newspaper Bild has published a story giving release dates and pricing for Nintendo's new 3DS handheld, claiming that the machine will be available in Japan on November 11, 2010 and Europe in the Spring of 2011, priced at €200 (£170.19).

The paper has made predictions before, correctly pre-empting Satoro Iwata's announcement of the Wii-mote with a story in 2005. However, Bild - the best selling newspaper in Europe - doesn't have the best reputation for accountable reporting, focusing largely on tabloid stories.

Nintendo has said previously that 3DS would be released in 2011, and is expected to confirm exact dates and prices at a press conference on Wednesday.

Several titles were also listed as being 3DS's launch games: Mario Kart 3D, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle.

No source was given for the 3DS pricing and release information by Bild, which was noticed and reported via NeoGAF.
