Speaking at the Nintendo press conference currently taking place at E3, the firm's president and CEO Satoru Iwata has claimed that the new 3DS handheld's capabilities will enthuse developers across the games making community.
The device, which Nintendo America president and CCO Reggie Fils-Aime introduced significantly promoting the fact that it does not require glasses, features significantly bolstered graphics and a slider that allows the user to dictate the strength of the 3D effect.
"I can’t wait for you to try this," enthused Iwata. "As you can see, it has two screens and the upper screen has 3.5 inch widescreen display and shows full 3d without the need for special glasses.
"As you know Nintendo produced the first 3d video game 15 years ago and since then 3d has been a contant consideration in our plans. What we searched for awas a way to make 3d games a reality in a mainstream product."
After explaining that the DS successor boasts an improved graphical capability to the DS, Iwata added: "This will cause a lot of enthusiasm in the development community."
The device also features a motion sensor and gyro sensor, touch screen, 3D stills camera, and support for viewing 3D movies.
