Yeah, the company that brought you the Wii, is now bringing you hand-held 3D gaming. On March 27th the Nintendo 3DS will go on sale. Retail price will be $250 and will be available in two colors, Black and Aqua Blue. Nintendo is setting it’s goals pretty high for this little gem. They expect to sell four million units by March 31st as well as 15 million games in the same time frame. Lofty? A bit, but we think this will probably do that with the device launching in Japan on February 26th. Pre-order yours today.
Nintendo 3DS comes with a 3.53-inch top screen and a 3.02-inch bottom touch screen. It has three cameras — one inner and two outer — to deliver the 3D effect and take 3D pictures. It includes a motion sensor, a gyro sensor and even a slide pad that allows 360-degree analog input.
Nintendo DS games will play in both 2D or 3D, as the slide pad that allows gamers to control the depth, or “parallax barrier,” of the on-screen action. Nintendo will support the new system with new iterations of franchises like Mario Kart, Paper Mario, StarFox, and Animal Crossing. Some of the third-party games shipping for the portable device include EA Sports’ Madden NFL Football, Capcom’s Resident Evil Revelations, Activision’s DJ Hero 3D, and Namco Bandai’s Ridge Racer.
