Nintendo 3DS is a breakthrough in portable entertainment. The stereoscopic 3D display of the upper screen offers true 3D visuals without the need for special glasses and gives objects within the game world a feeling of space and depth that extends far into the back of the screen. It becomes easier to see the position of characters and obstacles in the world, making many game experiences even more intuitive for all types of players.

A built-in 3D Depth Slider allows users to customize their 3D experience. The 3D Depth Slider lets players immediately adjust the intensity of the 3D to their liking. The 3D effect can also be turned down completely - all Nintendo 3DS games and applications can be played in 2D and look better than any Nintendo handheld before it.

Use Parental Controls to restrict 3D mode for children 6 and under.
