Nintendo Announces the 3DS, a Slew of Games at E3

Get a visual tour of the Nintendo 3DS and some of the games announced at Nintendo's E3 presentation.

Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS takes the wildly popular Nintendo DSi design and adds a 3.5-inch wide 3D display on the top half--no glasses needed. The slider on the right-hand side of the top half will allow the player to adjust the 3D effect as desired. Also, it looks like the new analog "slide button" (above the directional pad on the left-hand side) will offer tighter controls for 3D games.

3D Camera on back

The back of the Nintendo 3DS features a pair of cameras that players can use to take 3D photos.

Nintendogs + Cats for 3DS

One of the new titles announced for the Nintendo 3DS is a brand-new version of Nintendogs, which features improved graphics, facial and motion recognition with the built-in camera (so the dog can recognize different "owners" and respond to your head movement), and...cats!
