Everything you need to know about the Nintendo 3DS
The 3DS is about to hit retail, so we thought it would be a good idea to gather up all the information you need to know into one location - so we did and it's right here.
If you're looking for information about something that's not covered here, just ask and we'll find out for you - we have a 3DS already and if we can't find out by looking at it, we'll get you the information some other way.
We've split it out into four main sections, each of which has it's own page:
1. The Basics
A high-level overview of what's going on here and why you should care
2. The Console
What you need to know about the device itself
3. The Games
There are 15 titles available at launch, we detail them all
4. The Prices
We've got all the details on the best deals nationwide
We've tried to include as much information as possible, however as the big day approaches it's quite likely stores will compete with each other to offer the best possible prices or bundles. If you're aware of anything, send us a tip so we can update this article and ensure that NZGamer.com readers continue to get the most accurate information available!
So what's this all about, then? The Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo's fourth generation handheld game system, is releasing in New Zealand on March the 31st. In addition to having the requisite improvements to design, controls, graphics, and other upgrades, the 3DS brings something brand new to gaming consoles: 3D (actual "float in space" / "it looks like I can touch it!" 3D) without the need for any kind of special glasses.
There's more than just the clever tech of the screen that's worthy of your attention, too, with a bunch of built-in software for you to play with (detailed on The Games page) right out of the box. You can also use it to take (and display) 3D photos, and (eventually), play 3D movies.
There's (obviously, perhaps) also a lot of games coming out - 15, in fact, on the launch day alone with more to come in the weeks that follow. We've got a full breakdown on each and every one of them over on The Games page.
