Nintendo reveals 3DS video recording, new camera features

New system update arriving at the end of November

As expected, next month's Nintendo 3DS update will introduce the ability for users to capture their own 3D videos.


Nintendo president Satoru Iwata just confirmed the news at a 3DS press conference in Japan, where he said 3DS owners will be able to record 3D videos up to ten minutes in length.

Arriving at the end of November, the update also unlocks a number of new camera features too, ONM reports, ncluding stop motion filming, where the 3DS takes snapshots at intervals before merging each frame into a full motion video.

In addition, the update will add new puzzles to Puzzle Swap in StreetPass Mii Plaza and a new dungeon to StreetPass Quest.

Nintendo of Europe marketing and PR boss Laurent Fischer said: "We are always striving to bring fun new experiences to our fans and these new features and functions for Nintendo 3DS do just that.

"We are also looking forward to the launch of some great titles over the next couple of months, such as Super Mario 3D Land on 18th November and Mario Kart 7 and Super Pokémon Rumble both on 2nd December."
