Nintendo Announces New 3D DS

52 second read


Nintendo’s just announced that they’ll be releasing a new Nintendo DS to be released in March of next year. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata made the announcement earlier in a an investor call.

You can have a look at the translated press release here, but it’s scant with regards to details, except for one thing…

Apparently the new handheld, tentatively called the Nintendo 3DS will feature 3D – and it won’t require you to do your mobile, public gaming with a set of silly glasses on either. Thank heavens.

According to the press release the device will allow you to play 3D games with the “naked eye,” as well as it being backwards compatible. there’s no information on what’ll be under the handheld’s hood – but expect a whole lot more info at E3 in June.

Let’s just hope it’s better than the ill-advised, crimson, and headache-inducing Virtual Boy.

    At rAge last year, I tested out a nifty device for PSP that basically sat like a raised lens/thing above the PSP’s screen. At first it looked like it was only there to magnify the screen, but then they showed it to me and the thing uses some funny crap in the glass to split the images and it converted the games to 3D.

    I played a snowboarding game and a racing game with it and it was actually really cool, I wonder if the DS will be using similar technology?

    Nintendo’s version of 3d , where you have to tilt the screen to see the effect.
