3DS Augmented Reality Gaming Demo from Japan
Erik Ackerlund – Japan gamers have been treated to the release of the Nintendo 3DS there, there are all ready a number of user videos floating around. This one was particularly impressive. The guy throws a AR card down on the table. The 3DS then scans with it’s cameras for the location of the card. You see the gamer do some slight configuration. Once the 3DS recognizes it, things begin to develop over the scene and the game begins, Its great how the user can rotate the 3DS to get different angles on the game, all while watching this in 3D without glasses.
The 3DS will launch on March 27th for $250 in either Black or Blue. It comes packaged with a 2GB SD card, a charging cradle, and six augmented reality cards.
