Nintendo 3DS Details Revealed


Announced yesterday, the Nintendo 3DS will be released in Japan this coming February for the yen equivalent of $300 USD.

The 3DS box will include a charging stand, AC adapter, touch pen, 2GB SD memory card, and manuals. Its upper screen will be 3.53 inches wide with 3D support (with no need for glasses) and a 800x240 resolution (400 pixels per eye for 3D viewing), while the lower screen is just 3.02 inches wide and 320x240 pixels. 

The system includes a 3D camera, slide pad for controlling the depth of the 3D display, a motion sensor, and a gyro sensor. When in sleep mode, the 3DS will grab info from your surrounding Nintendo Zone and wireless access points, accumulating game demos and data, game videos, and other information, and can also transfer data with other 3DS systems while asleep.

Backwards compatibility was of course included, giving the player the ability to play DS and DSi games, and even transfer downloaded games (like DSi Ware) from their regular Nintendo DS. Previously, DS games were tied to the system it was downloaded to and unable to be played on other DS systems. However, Nintendo did point out that there would be a limited amount of transfers allowed, and not all software could be transferred. There will also be Mii integration.

Best of all, the 3DS will have its own Virtual Console for Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games! This is something fans have been asking for on the DS ever since the Wii put out its Virtual Console.
