Is 3D making a return?
The glasses-free 3D technology contained within the 3DS was arguably ahead of its time. Eventually though, Nintendo decided to focus on the more accessible and affordable 2DS line. Since then, it has shifted its attention to the Switch. So, will 3D gaming ever make a return? If a recent eye-tracking patent is anything to go...
You might need a bit of patience
We recently brought you news of a project called 3DNES, which had the ambitious goal of allowing you to convert your favourite NES games into 3D. Since then the project has moved on a bit and our chums over at Eurogamer have spent a bit of time playing around with it to see how easy it is to use in practice. It...
We may be waiting until the Summer for the next batch of 3D Classics from Sega in the West, but Japanese gamers can look forward to 3D Streets of Rage 2 this week, on 28th April; yes, we're jealous. The good news is that Sega's official YouTube channel has served up a taster of how the brilliant fighting game will look on Nintendo's...
Once again we bring you a look at what another classic SNES title would be like if it was given the 3D Classics treatment. This time around, we've converted Street Fighter II, the one-on-one fighter that made the genre what it is today. As always, these videos are designed to be enjoyed in 3D using the New Nintendo 3DS's Internet...
We hope you like red lines
Thanks to the power of the New Nintendo 3DS's updated Internet Browser, you are now able to watch YouTube videos in 3D. We've been using this little-known feature to bring you a series of videos based around the Virtual Boy, Nintendo's first attempt at 3D gaming from the mid '90s. For our third look through the visor...
Last week, we experimented with releasing a 3D video of Virtual Boy Wario Land, and you said you wanted more. So we're giving you more! Released in 1995, does Galactic Pinball successfully translate the exciting, fast gameplay of pinball, with the addition of migraines? In this video, we take a look and quickly realise that we're not...
Also proposes enhanced experiences through smell, temperature and light
Nintendo may have submitted some rather peculiar patent applications in the past, but the most recent may have some foundation in reality, indicating a potential move into Virtual Reality for the company. It proposes a wearable device — potentially glasses — that is detected...
All about the software and glasses
When Wii U was unveiled, just a few months after the arrival of 3DS, some wondered whether the GamePad's screen would feature autostereoscopic capabilities like the handheld's screen. It didn't take long for that idea to fade away, as the realities of a glasses-free 3D screen that size, as well as its constant use...
Taking a backseat
Nintendo global president Satoru Iwata has revealed that stereoscopic 3D will play a role in future systems — but it won't be one of the "key features". Speaking to The Independent, Iwata insisted that Nintendo remains enthusiastic about 3D, but also acknowledged that some people tire of the effect's novelty quickly. As such,...
