As reported Nintendo unveiled the 3D portable gaming console Nintendo 3DS today at the E3 2010. Now Nintendo released all the officially available details of the 3DS.
The Nintendo 3DS features a 3.53-inch top 3D screen and a 3.02-inch bottom touch screen. It has three cameras – one inner and two outer – to deliver the 3D effect and take 3D pictures.
It includes a motion sensor, a gyro sensor and even a Slide Pad that allows 360-degree analog input.

The 3DS can communicate in the 2.4 GHz band. Multiple Nintendo 3DS systems can connect via a local wireless connection to let users communicate or enjoy competitive game play. Systems also can connect to LAN access points to access the Internet and allow people to enjoy games with others. Will support IEEE 802.11 with enhanced security (WPA/WPA2). Nintendo 3DS hardware is designed so that even when not in use, it can automatically exchange data with other Nintendo 3DS.

Measurements of the 3DS are Approximately 5.3 inches wide, 2.9 inches long, 0.8 inches tall and the weight is 8oz.

The 3D screen of the 3DS has 800x240 pixel resolution (400 pixels are allocated for each eye to enable 3D viewing).
From the initial reactions of E3 attendees the 3D effect is really a pop out experience. The 3DS is apparently offering a solid 3D effect without having to wear glasses. The 3D effect is only there when looking at the screen dead center. See hi-res photos of the 3DS here.

The Nintendo 3DS launch game line-up will be impressive:

Nintendo 3DS that reinvent some of the industry’s most beloved franchises. These include:

  • Kid Icarus: Uprising, the long-awaited franchise follow-up to the NES classic.
  • Mario Kart, which shows off the potential of driving and tossing bananas in 3D.
  • nintendogs + cats, a new version of the best-selling nintendogs franchise that lets players interact even more with their virtual puppies – and kittens!
  • PilotWings Resort, a flying simulation that lets players soar above Wuhu Island.
  • Animal Crossing, a new installment of the charming community-building franchise.
  • StarFox 64 3D, a game that demonstrates the true distance and depth of outer space using Nintendo’s well-known franchise.
  • Steel Diver, a new submarine-navigation game from Nintendo.
  • Paper Mario, which brings paper-based 2D environments to life.

Nintendo 3DS also comes to market with the strongest third-party support of any video game system in Nintendo history. Games on display at the Nintendo booth at the E3 Expo include:

  • DJ Hero 3D from Activision
  • RESIDENT EVIL REVELATIONS from Capcom
  • The Sims 3 from Electronic Arts
  • HIDEO KOJIMA’S METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER 3D “The Naked Sample” from Konami
  • Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles (name not final) from LEVEL-5
  • RIDGE RACER (name not final) from Namco Bandai Games
  • KINGDOM HEARTS franchise game from Square Enix
  • DEAD OR ALIVE 3D (name not final) from Tecmo Koei Games
  • SAMURAI WARRIORS 3D from Tecmo Koei Games
  • Battle of Giants: Dinosaur Strike from Ubisoft
  • Hollywood 61 (name not final) from Ubisoft

The only information that is still missing is the launch date and the price for the Nintendo 3DS. It is really hard to predict if the 3DS is still launching in time for the coming Holidays or not.

E3 2010 will start on June 15th and we will be at the show to bring your first hand coverage of the hottest new gaming gear. We expect to see and go hands on with the Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Move and Kinect for Xbox 360.
