3DS will get its best video series since Threediots at the end of this month when Nintendo and Atlantic Productions release a 90-second clip from Kingdom of Plants 3D.

The time-lapse video was filmed over the course of a year and gives a "revealing and fascinating new look at plant life", apparently. You can check it out for yourself when it hits the European eShop on 28th July — the same day the 3DS XL hits the continent.


Nintendo partners with Atlantic Productions to bring immersive 3D time-lapse footage for the European launch of Nintendo 3DS XL

11th July 2012 – As part of an exciting new partnership, Nintendo has teamed up with award-winning Atlantic Productions, the company behind Sir David Attenborough’s BAFTA winning ‘Flying Monsters 3D’ and triple Emmy Award winning ‘First Life’, to bring exclusive new video content for the launch of Nintendo 3DS XL on 28th July 2012.

The partnership will see an exclusive 3D video clip from Atlantic Productions’ ground-breaking Sky series, Kingdom of Plants 3D with David Attenborough made available to download for free from the Nintendo eShop on 28th July 2012 for all Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL owners to marvel at.

The exclusive one and a half minute clip is an astonishing look at the secret lives of plants filmed at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London, revealing a dramatic world otherwise invisible to the human eye. Filmed over the course of a year, the clip is a revealing and fascinating new look at plant life through the use of stunning 3D time-lapse filming techniques.

Anthony Geffen – Executive Producer of Kingdom of Plants 3D and CEO of Atlantic Productions said ‘We are delighted to bring you this specially edited clip from the ground-breaking 3D TV series ‘Kingdom of Plants 3D’ exclusively to Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 3DS. It is a unique way to see David Attenborough’s new series in 3D without glasses, bringing it to a whole new audience.’

Sir David Attenborough said: ‘Watching flowers develop and insects visiting flowers is always wonderful to see, but in 3D it becomes transcendental. Seeing this happen in such depth gives you a most extraordinary, vivid impression. It’s unforgettable.’

Kingdom of Plants 3D is available on Blue Ray Disc and DVD now, and is due to be released in IMAX and giant screen theatres in the winter of 2012. For more information go to www.thekingdomofplants.com and www.goentertain.tv
