Those in North America hoping for a holiday 2010 release for the Nintendo 3DS? Tough luck.

Friday night on talk show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was asked when the company's upcoming glasses-free 3D portable will be release. His reply?

"Next year."

When the portable was initially revealed, Nintendo said it would be released in Japan before March 2011. No clarification if that is a global launch or just North America.
