During a press event held earlier today, the folks at Nintendo of America (finally) loosened their lips regarding the soon-to-be-released 3DS system.
Specifically, they revealed that the system will hit the streets in North America on March 27--which means we'll be getting it one month later than the Japanese and two days later than Europeans. Two colors will be available at that time, Aqua Blue and Cosmo Black, and both will carry the same price tag ($249.99).

The system is available for pre-order at Amazon.com, so head over there if you just have to have one at launch.
