Nintendo 3DS ad almost shows off 3D

1 min read


Nintendo’s soon-to-be-released 3D handheld is an amazing device, but the nature of its 3D effects make it terribly difficult to advocate in print or online. It’s just one of those things you have to see for yourself. As such, advertising for the device completely fails to make the impact it should – because it’s just impossible to show off the pretty damned incredible 3D effect on a standard screen.

Instead, all you get to see is videos and pictures of what look like slightly upgraded DS games. This first US 3DS commercial nearly, nearly succeeds in showing off the 3DS’ titular effects. Check it out, after the jump.
