The Nintendo 3DS (ニンテンドー3DS Nintendō Surī Dī Esu , pronounced /nɪnˈtɛndoʊ ˈθriˈdiɛs/) is an upcoming portable game console by Nintendo, which can produce "3D effects without the need for any special glasses", a process called autostereoscopy. Scheduled to launch in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011, the portable will succeed the Nintendo DS series of handhelds, which primarily shares the handheld console market with Sony'sPSP (PlayStation Portable). The Nintendo 3DS will feature backward compatibility with Nintendo DS series software, including Nintendo DSi software.
Announcing the device on March 23, 2010, Nintendo officially unveiled the device at the2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 15, with the company inviting attendees to play with the console. According to industry analysts, the timing of Nintendo's original announcement, which had drawn attention away from the launch of the company's still-new Nintendo DSi XL handheld, was likely intended to preempt impendingnews leaks about the product by the Japanese press.
