Nintendo Nintendo of America unveiled the game lineup for its new 3DS gaming system Wednesday, allowing users to play 3-dimensional games with the option of linking wirelessly to other players nearby.

The system goes on sale March 27 for $249.99, featuring games such as Super Street Fighter 4, The Legend of Zelda, Madden NFL and Lego Star Wars, with at least 30 games set to be released before the summer.

The device opens up to reveal two screens -– one with 3-D video that doesn’t require special glasses and can be adjusted or turned off, and a touch screen with an adjustable stylus. A motion sensor and a gyro sensor can adjust the screens as players tilt the device.

There’s also a 3-D camera built in.

The 3DS, which will be available in aqua blue or cosmo black, can also sense other systems nearby and launch games with them using the StreetPass function.
