N64 videos simulate 3DS screen

Pop a pair of glasses on and see.

3D simulations of renowned Nintendo 64 games have appeared on YouTube. They offer non-E3 goers a glimpse of what the 3DS can do.

Games demoed include Mario Kart 64, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Excite Bike 64, Starfox 64 and Mario 64.

You'll need a pair of the old coloured 3D glasses to see what Nintendo is trying to create. You can change the 3D output of the video by clicking the "3D" button on the bar below the picture.

Note that the 3D glasses you stole from the cinema when you went to watch Up! or Avatar do not work. I've just tried.

Also remember that the 3DS offers a 3D picture without the need for glasses. That's one of the reasons Eurogamer was bowled over by Nintendo's new handheld at E3 last month.

Check-out our hands-on impressions of the 3DS for a detailed analysis.

The 3DS will be released in all major territories before April 2011.
