Nintendo 3DS Games

August 20, 2010

Nintendo 3DS is a brand new way of gaming for this generation of gamers. You do not have to wear glasses to experience the special effects in this gaming device. It is surely a revolutionary machine, which will alter the way we play games. Nintendo 3DS has a very cool backwards compatibility feature and more horsepower. The processing power of the 3D component in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS handheld device can be used efficiently for making better-looking games. Nintendo 3DS handheld device is slick and stylish. The players will have a third dimension to this game but they can also enjoy the standard 2D format.

DJ Hero 3D:

The physical turntable peripheral in this game is brought to a handheld portable device and you do not have to pay anything extra for the special attachments. It does not have GBA cart slot and even if it does there is no way to attach it to the latest handheld device from Nintendo. Note tracking becomes easier with the 3D effect and you can focus on the closer planes. The background fades and blurs effectively into nothing. Controls are handled with stylus and like the console version the notes flow down the track. The color-coded arrows will tell you whether to flick right or left. When you find long stretches of some colors you have to scrub your stylus and when you find circles you should tap. It is very satisfying and simple game.

Steel Diver:

The Steel Diver submarine warfare game was long expected in Nintendo DS, but launched in Nintendo 3DS. It has been reworked for the 3DS version. Shigeru Miyamoto says that this title is almost done and the 3DS version is expected soon.

Kingdom Hearts:

The kingdom hearts video demo starts with Sora sitting on a branch by the edge of ocean water. It continues with various familiar locations, which is inter-spliced with the shots of some characters from the game. The trailer shows the 3D port of Kingdom Hearts rather than a new 3DS title. The graphics in 3DS is very nice but the 3D effect looks very weak.

Paper Mario:

It has new features like chain chomp companion and peel-off badges for Mario. Otherwise, it looks like GameCube and N64 games. The 3D effects in this game are completely binary and it does not matter whether the 3D slider is on or off, there is no variance in the 3D effects.

Mario Kart:

This Mario Kart game comes with 3D graphics. It is not as good as the Wii version and visually it is underwhelming. The 3D effects will pop up when the players overlap but still it is an exciting game.


Nintendo's 3DS top screen shows the trailer of Rapunzel animated movie from Disney. It looks exactly like the theatrical version of the animated movie trailer, but it a lot smaller. There is nothing Earth-shattering in this game. If this device is capable of playing full 3D movies, it will be much more interesting.
