The Nintendo 3DS is Nintendo's most recent portable gaming system. It was released in February 26, 2011 in Japan and March 27, 2011 in North America. It has shipped 45.42 million copies (as of September 30, 2014). It is able to run both 3DS and DS games on it, and has a large selection of Virtual Console and other games on the eShop.Its selling point is that it can run games in 3D without 3D glasses. The best selling games on it are Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, which have sold 12 million copies.


The 3DS also offers Miiverse. Unlike the Wii U version, you cannot receive personal messages from other users. In addition, because its purpose is for an individual, rather than it being a family system, only one NNID can be registered and linked to it, unless the user performs a system format. 


The 3DS has many variations, including:

  • Nintendo 3DS
  • Nintendo 2DS (3DS without the 3D feature)
  • Nintendo 3DS XL
  • New Nintendo 3DS
  • New Nintendo 3DS XL
