The latest issue of “Iwata Asks” addressed Nintendo’s upcoming handheld, the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo Japan’s president Saturo Iwata chats with Shingeru Miyamoto and Shingesato Itoi about their 3D device.

Discussions went further concerning the 3D handheld, eventually, to speak about a likelihood option of recording 3D videos using the Nintendo 3DS, throughout software update in the future. Iwata claimed how since the device supports 32GB SD cards, disk space is no longer an issue to record and save videos on the system.

“Until now even if you have taken 3D photos, you wouldn’t have many ways to show them off, but if everyone has one and is taking 3D photos and showing them to each other, then that changes the value. Perhaps this is going to be the first time when something like this can spread far and wide rather rapidly. I think it will be fun if we’re able to include video recording capabilities with future updates.” – Satoru Iwata

Saruto Iwata has hinted before how many ideas would have potential operating on the 3DS, including 3D video chat, 3D movies and whatnot. Although as stated, recording 3D videos is possible on the device, Nintendo didn’t issue a statement whether we will see the feature as a default option when the system launches in February.


Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
