Joining the ranks of games dropping on Switch and 3DS eShop this afternoon, there was one in particular that caught our eye, although not due to its snazzy aesthetic. Nope, the snappily named PDI Check for Nintendo 3DS attracted our notice thanks to its alarmingly high price tag: $99.99.
Hailing from an Alaskan eye doctor, the software is described as 'an interactive multiple-choice game'. We assume it's primarily designed for medical use, as detailed in the blurb available on its official website:
PDI Check is an interactive multiple-choice game utilizing the unique color, 3-dimensional screen on the Nintendo 3DS system to quickly and accurately measure monocular near visual acuity, color vision and stereopsis.
As a part of a comprehensive eye exam, visual functions are measured at distance and near.
There's plenty more info on the website if you're interested, with in-depth details of how it tests your visual acuity using Nintendo's ageing handheld system to provide a comprehensive examination and analysis of your vision. Given the very high asking price, you would expect it to be pretty thorough. Check out the video below to see the eShop software in action:
