With the most third-party Nintendo 3DS titles available at launch, Ubisoft will be releasing Asphalt 3D, Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, and Rayman 3D, with several more titles launching over the next few months.

The titles available at retail on the March 25, 2011 launch of the Nintendo 3DS are:

Asphalt 3D: Asphalt 3D is a racing game that features authentically modeled licensed supercars. Players use the Nintendo 3DS accelerometer feature to power a wide range of more than 40 high-performance cars and motorcycles to race through 17 exotic locations including Cape Town, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo. Get behind the wheel of vehicles from prestigious manufacturers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ducati to engage in a variety of high-speed challenges and micro challenges beyond the normal race: cash attack, vigilante, high-speed chase, drift, time trial, duel and leader of the pack. Up to six players can challenge each other in local wireless mode. Complete StreetPass features include Viral Ghost, Rankings and StreetPass PayTable. Comprehensive tuning options help players achieve peak performance for vehicles that have been selected. Players can use the replay feature to relive all of those hair-raising moments just experienced in their last race.

Combat of Giants Dinosaurs 3D: This 3D take on the popular kids’ franchise mixes exploration and customization with real-time combat. The player is tasked to show mastery in defeating enemies during real-time combat sessions and unite forces to restore peace on the ancient land. In combat, the player can choose between six real-time actions such as fencing, blocking, evading, hitting, pushing and combo. With the new “Ring Out” tactical combat feature, players can push their opponents out of the ring. The player roams the Jurassic world in full 3D and feels the depth of the breathtaking landscapes such as the Jungle, Desert and Volcano Mountain, and obtains special rewards by interacting with other living creatures and by crushing trees and rocks. They can collect bones to unlock new special playable characters and find items to strengthen their dinosaur and learn cool facts. Players can choose their favorite dinosaur from breeds such as T-Rex, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor, Triceratops, Ankylosaurus and Baryonyx and customize it with various color options and stripe patterns.

Rayman 3D: An adaptation of the acclaimed Rayman 2 original game on Dreamcast, Rayman 3D gives players the opportunity to rediscover the adventures of Rayman in a deeper and optimized universe. The player progresses in a 3D world through forty-five areas set across thirteen dangerous regions of Rayman’s world to defeat unmerciful enemies, including Admiral Razorbeard and the Henchman. In the game, players can run, climb, jump, swim, fly, loop-the-loop and even water-ski. Additionally, Rayman still has his famous ability to fly as a helicopter using his hair!

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars: As the commander of the Ghosts, the most elite special operations fighting force in the world, the mission is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, the player must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era “Dead Hand” bases that Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. The player has access to full resources to build, train and equip its team using increasingly high-tech weapons and armor.
