Nintendo is the king when it comes to gaming innovation. Nintendo as a company has been a pioneer when it comes to portable gaming since the 80’s up through the 90’s with their Game & Watch line of handheld games. Nintendo, which was founded more than 100 years ago, is still a leader in innovation when it comes to console gaming. Now, the company is still proving they are a market leader and a trendsetter with the introduction of the Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo 3DS is the latest portable gaming console from Nintendo. As the name suggests, the console will feature games that you can play in 3D. If you have seen James Cameron’s Avatar in IMAX then you know exactly what kind of 3D element you will experience with the 3DS. However, the big difference is that your orientation with the 3D effect will always be correct since you are holding it in a handheld. In addition, you don’t even need 3D glasses to experience the 3D effect, unlike your movie experience. If you don’t like the 3D effect for some reason, you can turn it off with the depth slider accessory.

The Nintendo 3DS is in the same skew as the DS line of nintendo switch game portable gaming handheld. This means that you can play Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games with full backward compatibility. However, let me tell you that backward compatible games will not be played in 3D. The 3DS is head and shoulders above the Game Boy and the DSi when it comes to power and features. That said, the machine has basically the same structure as the DS or DSi. It has a top screen and a lower LCD touchscreen that can be manipulated with a stylus. Not only that, the 3DS has two outer cameras that can see in marvelous 3D almost like human eyes.

The feature set and improvements in the Nintendo 3DS just goes on and on. Do you know that the controller for the 3DS has also been improved? If you look at the upper left side of the bottom screen, you will see the Circle Pad analog controller. This controller was made for fast control and precision when it comes to playing 3D games.

You will also surely appreciate the wireless capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS. It features wireless data transfers at 2.4 Ghz and it can also connect seamlessly with wireless hotspots and WLAN access points. This awesome piece of hardware is also expandable using SDHC cards. It even comes with a 2 GB SD card for free.
