Nintendo 3DS! Nintendo Announces Autostereoscopic 3D Handheld Game System!

Michael here. Wow, this is HUGE news. Nintendo has announced that the successor to the Nintendo DS, tentatively called the "3DS", will be released by March 2011.

The 3DS will not require glasses. My guess is that the 3DS will feature a parallax barrier or lenticular-based autosterescopic screen. There's also a chance it will feature headtracking for motion parallax.

It will be backwards compatible with the DS and DSi.

In any case, more details on the 3DS will be revealed at this year's E3, which starts June 15 in Los Angeles. It may even be available to play.

I can't wait to hear more about this! I'm sure Nintendo must be thinking S3D and headtracking for the Wii's successor as well, especially after seeing this video.
