The price and release date of the 3DS for the Japanese launch was revealed today at the Nintendo 2010 conference. Nintendo 3DS consoles will be available for purchase in Japan on the 26th of February 2011, with the west getting their units in early March. Priced at 25,000 yen, or USD $300, it's not exactly cheap. However, it's possible the North American and European editions could be slightly cheaper as this is the pricing for the Japanese 3DS's only. It will ship in two colors, Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black.
