Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata has revealed that the new Nintendo 3DS – its next handheld, capable of displaying 3D without the need for glasses – will feature the ability to deactivate the 3D effect.
Speaking in Tokyo recently, via Forbes, Iwata said Nintendo is aware of concerns over the effects of 3D screens on children’s eyesight.
Acknowledging this, the Nintendo president said it would be easy for users to deactivate the 3D mode, giving them the choice of playing games for the new console in either 2D or 3D.
UK industry sources told CVG that the platform holder is readying an October launch for the system – which Nintendo promises to reveal in full at E3 next month.
Nintendo announced the 3DS back in March, confirming only its ability to display 3D without glasses, and saying it would be out before March 2011.
