Nintendo 3DS Coming Out Party

Last night, Nintendo held a press conference to announce the official details of their upcoming 3DS. The system will launch in Japan on February 26, 2011 and March in the U.S. The new handheld will have a Gameboy and Gameboy Color Virtual Console service to download classic games like Mario Land and Link's Awakening. Capcom has announced two new Resident Evil games, Mega Man Legends 3(!), and SSF4: 3D Edition for the system.

SSF4:3D will take advantage of the system's previously-announced Tag Mode to match players up in automatically-occurring battles. It is unclear what affects the outcome of these battles, as well as what is earned from participating in them. Perhaps taunts and colors are unlocked by Tag Mode. The game will include all 35 characters from the console release and will presumably be available at or around the 3DS launch. A trailer explaining the new features (in Japanese) is all the information we have right now.
