It uses the DSi's camera as a motion tracker, changing the perspective on-screen accordingly. Or it could be something completely different... either way, this is great news to wake up to. The DS is a great system, but it's more than 5 years old now; and by the time this comes out it'll probably be about 6. More than long enough.
I think it will be very similar to this, except use the camera in conjunction
with motion tracking software like WordFu on the iPhone does for simulated
3D. That said, I want to know how they're going to up the graphics ability
of the 3DS while remaining backwards compatible.
Well the DS improved graphics quite a bit while maintaining backwards compatibility with the GBA... they pretty much just kept all the GBA hardware in the unit, didn't they? Apparently it's all still in the DSi as well, even if lacks a slot-2 to make use of it (awful).
Supposedly this could
be as powerful, graphically, as the Gamecube. In conjunction with 3-D without the hassle of glasses, it could be a massive
success. Of course there are tons of people already complaining, but that also happened before the release of the original DS and we all know how that turned out. Hard to believe there was a time when people thought dual-screen handheld gaming "couldn't work", lol.
I'm hoping a port of Super Mario Sunshine is announced as a launch title... every older Mario title has already been ported to a handheld, and it's tended to be in order of original generation.
