Iwata promises a steady stream of games for the 3DS

3DS games will not be in short supply

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has made some important promises regarding releases for their new handheld, the 3DS.

Iwata explained in an interview with Nihon Keizai Shimbun (translated via Andriasang) explained that games will not be in short supply for the 3DS.

He said: "It's important that you be able to supply software with no pause. With the DS and Wii, following the titles that were released at launch, the momentum dropped when there was a gap in software releases. We're making plans so that this type of thing won't happen."

The 3DS launches in Japan with eight titles being available from day one including Super Street Fighter IV 3D, Ridge Racer 3D and Nintendogs + Cats. Future releases include Metal Gear Solid 3, at least one Resident Evil title and a brand new Kid Icarus title.
