Nintendo Announces New Hardware, The Nintendo 3DS - Top - Kotaku
At E3, Nintendo will be introducing new hardware, the Nintendo 3DS.
In an official release, Nintendo describes the portable as allowing games to be "enjoyed with 3D effects without the need for any special glasses". It is not yet known how the 3D effects will work, but it is possible that it could work like this Japan-only DSiWare game.
According to Nintendo, the product will go on sale between April 2010 and March 2011.
The Nintendo 3DS will succeeded the Nintendo DS series and will have backward compatibility for Nintendo DS and DSi games. It is important to stress that the Nintendo 3DS is a new hardware series.
