Nintendo 3DS Console – Features

Experience the first console to successfully integrate 3D into gaming without making it seem like just a small gimmick. The 3DS takes everything that was great about the DS and heavily builds onto them, for an amazing gaming experience. Which makes it one of the most successful consoles, that is used and loved to this day!


One of the most prominent features of the console is its ability to display stereoscopic 3D effects without the use of 3D glasses or additional accessories, powered by the Nintendo Network. Augmented reality using its 3D cameras and Virtual Console allows you to download and play games originally released on older video game systems.


Its main central processing unit is a dual-core ARM11 MPCore-based processor clocked at 266 MHz. One processor core is dedicated to games and applications, while the other core is exclusive to the operating system, enabling multitasking and background tasks. These tasks are handled seamlessly in the background during gameplay or while the system is in sleep mode. The system also contains a single-core ARM9-based processor, enabling backward compatibility with both Nintendo DS and DSi titles.


The console features 2 cameras capable of taking 3D photos and videos. Also, a built-in microphone, and a lithium-ion battery with the longevity of between 3 and 8 hours. Also, you have 2 generous screens, the bottom one being a resistive touchscreen and while the system includes 2 GB of flash memory, it can be expanded by another 2 GB through an SD card.

Nintendo 3DS- Games

Even though it features backward compatibility with older Nintendo DS video games, the console has an impressive library on its own, featuring over 1300 fun titles to play all day!


With almost 19 million copies sold, Mario Kart 7 is the number 1 best-selling Nintendo 3DS game. As with previous games in the Mario Kart series, players participate in racing on various Mario-themed tracks, playing as one of seventeen different Mario characters. While racing, the players make use of power-up items that either assist their character or hinder opposing characters. New additions to the game include hang-gliding attachments for karts. Also, the ability to drive underwater, the ability to drive in the first person, and the ability to fully customize the vehicles’ builds.


Like the rest of the Super Smash Bros. series, this is a non-traditional fighting game. Here players use different attacks to weaken their opponents and knock them out of an arena. The games are crossover titles that feature characters, items, music, and stages from various Nintendo franchises, as well as from several third-party franchises.


Along with Pokemon Y, this is the second best-selling Nintendo 3DS console game. It follows the journey of a young Pokémon trainer and friends, as they train Pokémon. This time, the game takes place in the Kalos region. Based in France—the objective is to thwart the schemes of the nefarious criminal organization Team Flare. X and Y introduced 72 new Pokémon species and includes new features such as the new Fairy-type, character customization, updated battle and training mechanics, and more.


The player controls Link in the fantasy land of Hyrule on a quest to stop the evil king Ganondorf. You’ve to travel through time and navigate dungeons and an overworld. The game introduced features such as a target-lock system and context-sensitive buttons that have since become common in 3D adventure games. The player must learn to play numerous songs on an ocarina to progress.


Take control of Luigi, equipped with the Poltergust 5000, a ghost-eating vacuum cleaner, and embark on a quest to pacify the spirits of Evershade Valley. Save Mario from King Boo by gathering the shards of the shattered Dark Moon. You’ll have to explore five themed mansions and solve fun puzzles in order to gather all the missing shards. You can also play with your friends, working together to clear each level of a haunted tower, which we guarantee will have you playing for hours on end!


One of the most relaxing games on the 3DS, Animal Crossing has you take the role of a villager mistaken as a mayor of a town. The town is inhabited by lots of friendly and quirky characters. As you explore and develop the town, you can collect, buy and sell items. You can decorate your home and the world around you, with several new activities being added to this game. As the game is open-ended, you’re bound to stay playing it for hours on end.

    Rating 5 Stars = I love it!Having played the 3DS for nearly two weeks on and off, I am ready to type up my review. This is a review of the system overall. I have had a DS Lite, DSi and DSiXL, so I’ve had a good taste of the technology. The 3DS is Nintendo’s “New” console. That’s right, it is not another iteration of the previous DS systems, it is considered a new console, like when the Wii came out. With that in mind, here is my review.I have been playing Pilotwings Resort as well as all the other system-included apps. The first thing I noticed is the much improved graphics. The graphics remind me more of the Wii graphics. I haven’t seen all the other games available, however Pilotwings was done very well. The graphics were smooth and fluid–this is easily noticed due to the improved performance this device is capable of.The improvements in this system:Visuals:The screen resolution is much more sharp than previously available. The touch screen is about as big as the DSi’s touch screen so if you’re going form a DSi, you won’t be disappointed in the least. In fact, I’ve heard folks complain about how small the screens are–not so! The top screen is a wide screen, so now you’ll be able to enjoy all the new games in widescreen! Don’t think it makes a difference? Just give it a try. Playing Pilotwings in 3D really does make a difference. I am very satisfied with the screen quality, resolution, color etc. They chose a great quality screen and it will be exciting to see what games will put a smile on our faces in the future.The next improvements are the apps. It comes with face raiders, AR games and the Mii plaza. These are just to add value to the device and are nice to showcase what the 3DS is capable of. In other words, they’re not going to keep you entertained for hours on end, but they are enjoyable to show your friends. The AR games are pretty cool–the first time I saw them, I was quite happy about it. I could tell Nintendo had really thought.

    How could I possibly review the 3DS and do it justice? This was one of my first gaming consoles, and I’ve loved it a lot. After owning for five years or so, there’s only very faint scratches on the touch screen. The camera and audio quality aren’t super high definition, but I love everything else about this machine.

    This is the best unit that Nintendo has come out with so far. My grandson got it today and he has been playing it since he got it. I think that this is the best item that I could have got him. I would highly recommend this game unit for anyone who likes handheld games. This seller sent exactly what was described on amazon. I recommend this seller to all my family and friends. Keep up the good products.
