3D Video Recording Could Come to Future Version of Nintendo 3DS

Jan 13, 2011

While we're still waiting for the current version of the Nintendo 3DS to land in store shelves, the higher-ups at the company are already talking about what the future of the 3D portable gaming unit could look like. Namely, how the camera on the device, which is capable of taking 3D photos, could be used to record 3D video as well.

Iwata Asks took some time to chat with Shigeru Miyamoto, the famed developer behind titles like Mario Bros., and Satoru Iwata, the President of the company. In their talk, it was Miyamoto that dropped the first hint that the camera could be developed into a full 3D video capturing device. Thanks to the 3D photo feature, it seems that the company has already made steps into making sure something like that can happen.

But, it doesn't look like it's going to happen in the current generation 3DS. Iwata pointed out that a 3D video recording camera could be added to a future version of the 3DS. More details about the device are rumored to hit the world at the end of January, when Nintendo holds their press event.
