The Nintendo 3DS launch in Japan is exactly one month away for those in North America. But for an initial release, the gaming platform is already a sold out.

The which  made its in last Saturday is definitely a sold out. However, most of them were pre-orders only. Still, there are some stores in with the same-day units that drew the line up to 1,000. The stocks ran out fast by 9:00 in the morning, so most people were out of luck. Good thing, Nintendo officially announced that it will ship 1.5 million units to Japanese shops by March 31.

More over, the Nintendo 3DS package includes the following :

  • Nintendogs + cats (available in three versions)
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
  • Combat of Giants Dinosaur 3D
  • Ridge Racer 3D, Samurai Warriors Chronicle
  • Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
  • Winning Eleven 3D
  • Puzzle Bobble 3D.

Retailers all over Tokyo added demo kiosks to build up to the system’s launch. These kiosks allowed gamers to sample the Nintendo 3DS game titles. For the unfortunate ones who did not get a Nintendo 3DS of their own, other shops list new shipment time frame as TBA.

Do you have your own Nintendo 3DS now? How’s your initial impression?
