Future Nintendo consoles will only have a ‘minor’ 3D feature

In an interview with The Independent, Satoru Iwata has stated that Nintendo’s next-gen consoles will only implement 3D in a ‘minor’ way. He implies that the stereoscopic effect only has a limited appeal and won’t keep people wanting the feature every time.

“Now we’ve created the 3DS and 3DS XL and also have some games out there that are really using that 3D effect that we can see, from my point of view, that it’s an important element.”

“But as human beings are this kind of surprise effect wears off quickly, and just have this 3D stereoscopic effect isn’t going to keep people excited.”

“I think it’s an important element, it makes graphics more impactful, it proves a sense of immersion that 2D doesn’t have, so I would say generally that 3D is better than 2D.”

“It’s nice to have good graphics but not necessarily on their own, so I don’t think we’ll present [3D graphics] as one of the key features of our consoles but will probably stick with 3D as one of the minor elements of our consoles in the future.”
