Australia sees 3DS release on March 31


Nintendo detailed its plans for the Australian launch of the 3DS today at an event in Sydney. The device will be available March 31, just four days after the North American release date, at a price of AU$349.95 (around US$354). It'll be available in Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black, the same two colors available everywhere else.

Strangely, the Australian 3DS won't have StreetPass (which allows 3DS systems to wirelessly communicate with one another) or SpotPass (through which the 3DS seeks available wireless signals for automatic downloads of content) when the device is first available. Those will be released as an update late this year or in early 2012.
