Reggie speaks about the 3DS, stating that the system will not be available this year.
While on the Jimmy Fallon television show last night, Reggie Fils-Aimes stated that the Nintendo 3DS will not be available in North America this year. Instead it will launch in 2011.
It is unknown if Reggie was just referring to only North America. Judging by how Nintendo has been releasing its handhelds lately, it is likely that a European launch will be close to the North American debut. As for Japan, gamers will have to wait until Nintendo confirms a specific date.
