Nintendo announces 3DS handheld

To be unveiled at E3.

Nintendo has announced plans to unveil a new handheld called the Nintendo 3DS as E3 this June.

The handheld will be released before the end of March 2011 and will allow the player to experience 3D games without 3D glasses.

It will also be backwards compatible with existing DS games.

The announcement appeared on Nintendo's Japanese website today.

Check out Digital Foundry's In Theory piece on what Nintendo may go for out of available 3D technologies.

Thanks to EG forumites for the heads-up on the press release.
