Papercraft Friday #91: Nintendo 3DS

June 18, 2010

The hit of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) this year was the announcement of Nintendo’s upcoming handheld offering: the Nintendo 3DS.  While it looks very similar to the Nintendo DS, it sports an upper screen capable of displaying 3D images to the naked eye without the need for 3D glasses.  Gaming skeptics who saw it firsthand were won over by how good the effect is.  It also has two outward-facing cameras for taking 3D photos. is all over it this week, releasing a paper model version of the Nintendo 3DS.  It might not power on and play games, but it’s definitely 3D.

Note: Modelers should not experience any optical or physical discomfort when building this 3D model.  If you do feel any eye or head aches, queasiness, or any other discomfort, you should cease building this model right away.  It may be too hardcore for you.

Not keen on this one?  Want more?  Check out other Papercraft Friday posts.

June 15, 2010

Okay, here we go with Nintendo’s press conference:

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
– Lots of time showing Zelda control. Uses Wii MotionPlus.
– Some control issues. Stage issue or game issue?
– Looks fun. Lots of items to use.
– Not coming out until “next year”

Mario Sports Mix
– The Mario sports franchises have been pretty silent the last few years, so I’m not surprised.

Just Dance 2
– Dance games are the new music game genre this year.
– Doesn’t pick up full body moves like Kinect.  But that might mean it’s not as hard.
