Nintendo Has No Plans To "Abandon 3D Or Cease To Make New Propositions In 3D"

GR: Just a few weeks back, Nintendo introduced a 3D-less version of its current line of handhelds to market, leading many to wonder if the company is ultimately planning to phase out the once promising feature in due time. According to Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata, 3D will continue to be a focus over at Nintendo despite the introduction of the 2DS. (3DS, Nintendo, Satoru Iwata)

lol sony and microsoft competing toward Nintendo while Nintendo does their own thing and still remains on the throne.

so funny

regardless of sales. it is the CONTENT that matters most and Nintendo KEEPS DOMINATING .

not sales lol sales to determine somethings glory?

ha haaa

the 3D effect in the new Zelda for 3DS i heard is superb and proves once again that 3D in gaming is a PLUS <<<

I wouldn't call Nintendo's situation a throne at the moment, unless you're only referring to portables. Wii U is on its way to becoming GameCube 2.

The gamecube was secretly the greatest console of it's generation tho

At this point, the Wii U will be lucky if it goes down in history as the GameCube 2.

The Gamecube though after a year it launched was worth the purchase in my opinion.

Gamecube was actually good though...

Spoken by the most ignorant Nintendo fanboy on N4G,I still remember the articles from Nintendo fanboy websites that you kept posting on N4G.

I feel sorry for you really.

I for one like the 3d with 3ds
acharlez  +   830d ago
Yeah, and Super Mario 3D Land wouldn't be anywhere near as amazing without it.
FlyingFoxy  +   830d ago
Meh, i barely play any games with the 3D turned on for long.. In fact i beat the majority of 3D land with it off.
DarkBlood  +   830d ago
so did i, i have no vision problems with 3D yet i still didnt see how it would of help me beat the game or tell the difference between objects that i can already do in 2D mode

I love 3D on my 3DS, why do people hate it so much actually?
meganick  +   830d ago
Good question. I think the 3D effect makes the games more immersive and graphically impressive.
Dehnus  +   830d ago
Indeed, first time I played Kid Icarus Uprising it was really like Kid Icarus on Steroids :). The 3D effect really comes to his own in the second chapter, the weather effects just blast from the screen :D.

Love Nintendo. Period.
meganick  +   830d ago
In that case, Nintendo should make some 3D Wii U games. I'm sure the system can handle that.
Studio-YaMi  +   830d ago
I enjoy the 3D feature of the 3DS the same way I enjoyed the way Sony was embracing 3D gaming.

The difference though is that Nintendo used the 3D feature of the 3DS to make puzzles like in Super Mario 3D Land(which I really enjoyed playing on my sister 3DS!) and to enhance the graphics.

On the other hand,Sony approached 3D as a feature to enhance depth of the image,something you see in 3D movies you watch in the cinema but nothing about it was used to change how you play your games like Nintendo did.

All in all,I like 3D gaming,Nintendo way or Sonys,wish they both keep supporting it.

Wow, you mean a market move intended to make a few extra dollars from 4-year-olds WON'T change the face of the game industry? I never would have guessed! :O
