Nintendo Introduced Portable 3D Gaming With No Glasses
Nintendo introduced and gave the world the first look at their new immersive portable system called the Nintendo 3DS, that lets people enjoy games in 3D, without the need of special glasses or equipment. They’ve also announced a list of upcoming new games with a completely revamped look and feel.
Nintendo Video Game Designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, said that the additional dimension of depth in 3D makes it easier for players to judge distances while giving developers a new tool to create games and experience that play with both height and depth.
The new Nintendo 3DS will come with a 3.53 inch top screen, a 3.02 inch bottom touch screen, three cameras, one of which is inner, and two of which are outer, in order to deliver the particular 3D effect and even take 3D pictures. The new immersive handheld also includes a motion sensor, a gyro sensor and a Slide Pad that allows a 360-degree analog input.
At the E3 Expo, Nintendo also showcased a variety of games and applications for their new Nintendo 3DS that will reinvent the experience of some of the most played games in the industry. The games included are:
* Kid Icarus: Uprising, the long-awaited franchise follow-up to the NESTM classic.
* Mario Kart, which shows off the potential of driving and tossing bananas in 3D.
* Nintendogs + cats, a new version of the best-selling nintendogs franchise that lets players interact even more with their virtual puppies – and kittens
* PilotWings Resort, a flying simulation that lets players soar above Wuhu Island.
* Animal Crossing, a new installment of the charming community-building franchise.
* StarFox 64 3D, a game that demonstrates the true distance and depth of outer space using Nintendo’s well-known franchise.
* Steel Diver, a new submarine-navigation game from Nintendo.
* Paper Mario, which brings paper-based 2D environments to life.
Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nintendo of America, Cammie Dunaway, said that if the video game industry had an All-Star team, Nintendo’s games would fill the starting lineup. He also said that the combination of advanced interface and engaging gameplay broadens their appeal to all audiences, and that this is evidenced perfectly at the E3 Expo this year by the incredible new experience and controls that Wii MotionPlus brings to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
