Nintendo to Launch 3D Handheld This Year
And the best part? No glasses required. Avatar has unleashed utter 3D mania, and Nintendo plans to jump in sometime this coming year. Not much information has been provided, but here is what has been explicitly stated, via Nintendo's press release:
- A new handheld, called the Nintendo 3DS, will be released sometime between April 2010 - March 2011.
- Nintendo 3DS will produce 3D graphics, no glasses necessary.
- Nintendo 3DS will be backwards compatible with the entire line of Nintendo DS products.
- It will be revealed at the Los Angeles E3 trade show this coming June.
