Nintendo wasn't kidding when it said that the 3DS would have a ton of third party support: Metal Gear Solid, Assassin's Creed, Final Fantasy and more are coming to the handheld alongside old Nintendo classics.

I just got off the phone with Greg Tito, who was in the audience for Nintendo's E3 2010 press conference. I asked him about Nintendo's recently unveiled 3DS handheld. His words? "It's 3D. I don't know how, but it works." (Look for a hands-on soon!)

Nintendo has promised that the handheld will enjoy significant first-and-third-party support when it launches, and judging by the press kit, it wasn't kidding. The full lineup is massive: From Nintendo itself, we get the revival of classic franchises like PilotWings and StarFox (not to mention Kid Icarus). From the third party publishers? We get a whole lot of stuff - MGS, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, and a lot more.

Good lord. Nintendo killed it this year, and the 3DS is looking mighty impressive. Keep an eye out for hands-on impressions. The screen you see here is from the apparent MGS3 remake Snake Eater 3D: "The Naked Sample," and boy that looks nice for a handheld, don't it?

See more 3DS games on the Nintendo site.
