Nintendo 3DS pre-orders taken at GameStop

GameStop has begun taking pre-orders for the Nintendo 3DS, despite the 3D-capable gaming handheld not being expected to show up in US stores until March 2011. The reservations – which can currently only be made in-store; the GameStop 3DS information page only allows you to opt in to email alerts – require a roughly $25 deposit.

According to original tipster (and GameStop employee) wwm0nkey, the 3DS is showing up in the retailer’s systems as SKU 020132. Final pricing for the new Nintendo handheld is currently unknown, though in Japan it will retail at the equivalent of around $299.
