No Legend of Zelda in Nintendo 3DS Launch List?

You want Nintendo's 3DS launch list, we've got it. But you want The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS remake, you can't have it. Not on launch day, anyway.

You can, on the other hand, have some Star Wars, Street Fighter, Ridge Racer, Rayman, nintendogs, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon when Nintendo's no-glasses-3D games handheld launches in the U.S. on March 25.

Here's the complete list with publishers in parentheses. We're looking at 13 games total, or 11 if you count nintendogs once.

Pilotwings Resort (Nintendo)
nintendogs + cats Golden Retriever & New Friends (Nintendo)
nintendogs + cats French Bulldog & New Friends (Nintendo)
nintendogs + cats Toy Poodle & New Friends (Nintendo)
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (Capcom)
The Sims 3 (Electronic Arts)
Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D (Konami)
LEGO Star Wars III The Clone Wars (LucasArts)
Ridge Racer 3D (Namco Bandai)
Super Monkey Ball 3D (Sega)
Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (Tecmo Koei)
Asphalt 3D (Ubisoft)
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars (Ubisoft)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D (Ubisoft)
Rayman 3D (Ubisoft)

What's missing? Zelda. Metal Gear Solid. Kid Icarus. Resident Evil. Madden. You know, all the really cool stuff. Look for most of those later in 2011. Zelda's rumored to ship after E3, for instance.

In the meantime, what's there seems reasonable if unadventurous: The sporty flight simulation. The fighter. The sports and racing games. The platformer. The military-themed shooter and stealth game. The category-elusive but familiar remainder.

What do you think? Any of those catch your eye? Enough to buy a system at launch?
