The Nintendo 3DS was officially announced yesterday.  And while it's a handheld game system first and foremost, Nintendo will also be bringing 3D movies to the device.  It's not going to replace the 3D TV in your living room, but it looks like the best option for portable 3D at the moment.

There are two screens on the Nintendo 3DS, just like on the Nintendo DS.   The bottom one is for touch control and the top one is simply a display.  Unlike the DS though, the new 3DS has a widescreen display that creates a glasses-free 3D experience.

Nintendo's 3DS also has a slider on the side so you can turn 3D on and off, and even adjust the depth of the effect.  Just which movies will be making their way to the DS is still unknown.  And unfortunately, so is the price and release date of the Nintendo 3DS. You can expect to find out this September though, as Nintendo is expected to give further details at the Tokyo Game show.
