The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay
possibilities. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen gives objects
within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the
back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and
obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all
types of players.
3D Depth Slider
A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows you to immediately adjust the intensity of the
3D settings on the Nintendo 3DS system to your liking. The 3D effect can also be
turned down completely—all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in
2D, and look better than any Nintendo handheld before it.
Motion Sensor & Gyro Sensor
Portable play control reaches a new level with these amazing features,
allowing for new & unique gameplay mechanics. A built-in motion sensor and gyro
sensor can react to the motion and tilt of the system, so whether players are
twisting their systems side to side or moving them up and down, their
motion-compatible Nintendo 3DS games respond instantly.
Game graphics have never looked better on a Nintendo handheld system, thanks to
the two screens of the Nintendo 3DS system.
A widescreen display on the top screen shows 800x240 pixel resolution,
allocating 400 pixels for each eye to create the 3D effect.
The bottom LCD touch screen operates at a resolution of 320x240—with both
screens capable of displaying a brilliant 16.77 million colors.
With the Circle Pad, located above the + Control Pad, Nintendo 3DS offers full
analog control in 3D game worlds. Combined with the touch screen, traditional
buttons, camera and microphone input, and advanced motion control of the Motion
Sensor and Gyro Sensor, the potential is extraordinary.
The Nintendo 3DS system uses its two outer cameras to see the world in 3D, much
like the human eye, allowing for the creation of 3D photos—and a similar 3D
effect to that seen in Nintendo 3DS games.
The adjustable Nintendo 3DS Stylus takes the idea of touch control to a new and
even more user-friendly level. Once removed from the holder, the stylus length
can be adjusted to your liking with a simple push or pull. Now anyone can
achieve the optimum level of comfort while playing games that use the stylus.
Dock your Nintendo 3DS system whenever you are not using it in the included
Charging Cradle to keep it powered. You can then leave the system on in Sleep
Mode while charging, so that it can communicate via the SpotPass feature at any
time of day or night.
2GB SD Memory Card Included
Every Nintendo 3DS system comes packed with a 2GB SD Memory Card. You can use
this SD Memory Card to store your 3D photos, and sound recordings created on the
Nintendo 3DS system, and music* from your PC. You can also use it to store games
downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS system has SDHC card
compatibility to increase your storage space even further.
Almost all existing Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games can be played on a
Nintendo 3DS system in 2D. With backwards compatibility, your existing portable
games look and play just as well
Social and wired like no Nintendo system before it, Nintendo 3DS brings
fellow players together in exciting new ways with StreetPass™ communication. Set

exchange game data like Mii™ characters, high scores, and custom characters with
other users you pass on the street. You control what data you exchange, and you

data, free software, videos and more—even when the system is in sleep mode.
