Miyamoto: 3DS in development for three years

Legend says he immediately wanted to make Ocarina Of Time for hardware

Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that Nintendo has been hard at work on its 3DS screen for three years - putting paid to ideas that the console has been rushed out to combat the firm's rivals.

Rumours have circulated online that Nintendo purchased Sharp's ready-made 3D tech for the device.

"Three years ago when we started working on the 3DS screen, I knew I wanted to work on version of Ocarina Of Time.

"I felt that if you were running around in those fields in 3D, you'd really feel like you were there in Hyrole."
