Nintendo 3DS to capture video

In November, a new system update for the portable Nintendo 3DS system will enable owners to capture 3D video footage.

Users will be able to record and view moments or create their own original 3D productions and show them to others in 3D, all without the need for special glasses. The system update will also provide new experiences for people who have conquered all the StreetPass challenges in StreetPass Mii Plaza.

The update is just one of the many elements of Nintendo’s strong holiday season lineup that features two Mario games – one platformer and one racer – for Nintendo 3DS. The season also sees the arrival of the largest game-development project in Nintendo history: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii system.

“The 2011 holiday season offers up multiple must-have Nintendo games for both experienced players and newcomers,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Shoppers know they can count on Nintendo to offer amazing entertainment experiences at an unbeatable value.”
