    Nintendo announces Nintendo DS successor: Handheld to be able to produce 3D effects

    Nintendo Co., Ltd. has released an official statement announcing plans to release a new handheld console, tentatively given the name "Nintendo 3DS." The new console is said to produce 3D effects without the need for glasses, and it is also said to be backwards compatible with the library of Nintendo DS and DSi titles.

    Right, right... that new japanese DSi game that just came out looked very nice by using the cameras for depth... I wonder how this will be applied in the "3DS".

    Also, can I point out that there is small error in the article?
    ...a bigger DSi, the Nintendo DSi XL (known as the "Nintendo DSi XL" in Japan) was released.
    Its known as the DSi LL in Japan.

    Is it just me or does "Nintendo 3DS" make it sound more like there's three duel screens rather than duel screens that produce 3d...? xD
    this should be really obvious but, I really don't post here anymore. I pop in from time to time, but I really don't care.

    I was thinking the same thing...

    Anyways, there's a video of a 3d looking DSi game hadn't noticed before, (I'm sure I'm just a huge Slowpoke but...) I didn't know this kind of 3d look was already available on the DSi

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5QSclrIdlE

    Looks pretty cool

    'Three duel screens'? That's not grammatically correct. 'Dual' (with an a) means two, so you're saying 'three two screens'.

    The 3DS will have two screens, but in 3D, as the 'DS' (dual screen) does.

    It had damn well better be backwards compatible. I simply won't buy one if it isn't

    It is backwards compatible with all DS games.

    I sure hope gen 5 will be for the regular DS like they said and that it won't even have special bonus when played on 3DS
    I really liked the idea that I won't have to buy a new console just to play gen 5 (or to enjoy all the games' features)

    I suppose Gen V will be on DS, but the third version and possible remakes will likely be on the 3DS.

    I hope that will be the case... I just want at least the first pair of games to be completely for the regular DS (which means no extra for playing it on 3DS)
    I already got sick of all the event Poké that unlock special stuff in the game that really should've been there normally... I don't want to buy a brand new console that will cost a lot of money that I don't have just to unlock something in the game or to see it better =\
    The best would be to make the third version a 3DS exclusive and just leave the original pair for the regular DS
    I will be seriously annoyed if they'll all of a sudden delay gen 5 and release it to the 3DS (although I'd be happy for the DP anime to continue a little longer...)

    Reality Check Time.
    I went to http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/www.nintendo.com and searched Nintendo 3DS. There were no results. I can only think of one word now: FAKE! The DS has always been 3D capable, ever since its first game, Super Mario 64 DS. Why would they claim 3D support as a new feature when it was always available?

    ...

    My quest for information on the next generation Nintendo hand-held system continues.

    Aren't delays usually unexpected? I doubt the anime would be able to pull it off very well (since it takes six months to create episodes). If the the 5th gen games were delayed until 3ds came out, the anime would have to take a hiatus until the games came out.

    If the delay was on purpose and expected (six months or more ago) the anime might be able to continue longer, perhaps enough to have a 20 or so episode about the BF. Not sure what Dawn would do if she was a main character since 20 episodes is not nearly enough for contests as well as BF. I mean sure it's entirely possible but not likely. Since we're looking at only 5 episodes for any possible evolutions/fillers (actual fillers).

    5 episodes for BF
    5 Episodes for Contests
    5 episodes for GF
    5 episodes for randomness.
    ..............................

    Anyway until more information is known about the 3ds I'm going to remain apprehensive about it. The "3d without glasses" sounds pretty neat, I just hope that isn't all good for. Hopefully the possible graphics will blow DS graphics out of the water.

    Edit:

    Isn't a nintendo.com an English site, why would it be on there Pokemon.com doesn't even acknowledge Zoroark/Zorua? And did you even bother to check the source on bulbanews? It's a PDF file on nintendo.co.jp (a better source than nintendo.com since they're likely to have stuff known sooner).

    The DS has always been 3D capable, ever since its first game, Super Mario 64 DS. Why would they claim 3D support as a new feature when it was always available?
    I'm not sure you understand "3d without glasses". While apparently the DSi has a good view on the subject (I believe it requires the camera), this doesn't need a camera apparently but motion sensing technology.

    This is new, since the DS never has done that (with the exception of that DSI wiiware thing, but this could even be different than that).

    Nintendo of JAPAN (the only true authority) has this PDF up on their site:

    http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2010/100323e.pdf

    And it's not 3-D as an 3D animated graphics... it's obvious the DS already has those (though the 3DS will be capable of far better ones on this front, I imagine). They're talking about a type of stereoscopic 3-D that doesn't require glasses.

    I agree, my DSi is still fresh and new (even though it is almost a year old now). I would like to squeeze just one more generation out of it.

    3D sounds cool, especially if you don't have to wear those goofy glasses. Also, I am sooooo glad that they are making it backwards compatible. That is a great relief, as I feel all the games I'm buying now won't be outdated as quickly.

    Right, but if a delay would happen - the writers will probably know it before us... I don't know... but most likely they won't do any delay
    They waited until the last second to reveal gen 5 shortly before it's released so they probably know for sure they'll release it by the end of 2010

    I I'm not sure you understand "3d without glasses".
    I hate how people use "3D" for two really different things... I sometimes got confused by this too... there really should be two different words for these two completely different things
