Nintendo 3DS getting 3D video capture

Gaming, Tech Digest news

Nintendo 3DS real.jpgNintendo have revealed at their Tokyo Games Show press conference that their troubled Nintendo 3DS handheld console will be getting 3D video capture wih a forthcoming update.

The announcement came alongside news that 30 3DS games are on the way for owners of the console, including the long-awaited Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7.

“From the end of this year to the beginning of next, we are planning the kind of extensive line-up that has probably never been seen before in the history of video games,” said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.

“We will make an all-out effort to see that the 3DS sells enough to become the successor to the DS.”

The console will also soon be available in a “misty pink” version, though no new hardware was introduced. This is despite the fact that Nintendo have revealed a (pretty ugly) second analogue stick add-on, expected to touch down in December.

Nintendo 3DS sales rised a massive 260% after the company cut the price of the console by more than a third, despite its relatively recent launch.
