Nintendo Announces 3D Handheld

The Nintendo DS (originally released in 2004), and it's offspring the DS Lite, DSi, and newly released DSi XL, is currently the best selling handheld gaming system of all time. Earlier this morning Nintendo announced the upcoming release of their newest Dual Screen incarnation, the 3DS (working title).

The new system, set for release in March of 2011, is said to incorporate stereoscopic displays, which will not require the user to wear polarized glasses (much like the 3D advertisements popping up in recent years). The system will also be able to play every original Nintendo DS title, and sport front and back-facing cameras, like the DSi. 

While little is now known about the specifics of the system, further details are said to become available at the 2010 E3 Expo, held in Los Angeles in June.

(For all the old folks... Nintendo's first 3D handheld, which led to hours of eye bleeding.)
