3DS Video Games8

3DS is the 8th generation portable console from Nintendo and a successor to DS. It was released in North America and Europe in March 2011. The most important new feature in 3DS in comparison to its predecessor was displaying stereoscopic 3D effects on one of its screens (that’s also where the console's name comes from). Sales of 3DS weren't as spectacular as the results achieved by DS, but the newer console also achieved great success.
