E3 2010: Every Nintendo 3DS trailer and hands-on video the internet has, right here

The trouble with the 3DS is, it's impossible to appreciate its sheer technical, third dimension-taming wizardry in screenshots. That's why we've compiled all the trailers and hands-on footage we could find from E3 (in between sacrificing various fuzzy animals to Beelzebub in the hope of bagging the shiny handheld before next March) and stuck it below.

Also, watch out for the tech demo that shows off the 3DS' graphics card that will soon be breathing life into effeminate elves in tunics and fat Italians everywhere. It's purdy lookin'.


Resident Evil Revelations


Shit our decomposing, undead undies. Revelations looks stunning. If the final game is anywhere close to this footage, we'll be looking at a visual treat on a par with the Gamecube Resi remake.

That tanker also hints at considerably darker environments than those seen in Resident Evil 5. We're saying all our prayers to zombie Jebus that this will be the first not shit portable entry in the series.


Kid Icarus: Uprising


Yeah, so we've all seen it fourteen times already. But what harm is a fifteenth go going to have. Well, apart from all the irreversible damage done to our corneas. We really should sit a bit further back from our monitors.

Anyhoo, Pit is back and his adventure looks like the sort of potential killer app that could launch the 3DS into the sales stratosphere upon its release.


Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D “The Naked Sample”


Of all the shaky, awkward, 'I'm trying to take a video of an exciting new handheld while attached to a Nintendo-sponsored woman' footage that came from the show, this Snake Eater vid is the best.

Not only can you appreciate the PS2-beating looks, but if you squint hard enough you can get some sense of the 3D effect when the Snake Eater logo comes up. Either way, this is Big Boss in his best adventure in your pocket. If this is anything other than essential, we'll threaten to do some implausable thing we'll never actually get around to doing.


Nintendogs + Cats


What's cuter than a Nintendog? A Nintendog rendered in glorious 3D. Well, that's what the scary dude who looks suspiciously like Reggie is demanding we type, as he holds a revolver against our temple.

This is the only playable footage we've seen of the canine-obsessed title. Looks exactly the same to us, to be honest. Just a bit prettier... though it obviously makes our eyes weep blood staring at it in 2D blur-o-vision. And where the hell are the felines? Give us a stinking litter box over a pooper-scooper any day.


Various 3D tech demos


Now this is what we're talkin' about. Above, you can definitely appreciate the depth of field when staring at Samus, Pikmin and Link. And considering this is only average quality video footage, just imagine how impressive the 3D effect will be when you get your impoverished mitts on the real thing.

Pity they're all just glorified demos at the moment. But we'd be bloody shocked if the slinky bounty hunter and adorable, dead-eyed garden men don't make it to the handheld one day. Those visuals are also damn impressive, probably because of this...


3DS graphics card in action


Yup, according to a Japanese press release that's been translated on NeoGAF, Nintendo's handheld wonder will use the DMP PICA200 graphics card. We're going a bit wrong behind the eyes staring at the gorgeous demo above.

If real 3DS games can output that sort of polygon-pushing power, especially on such a sharp screen, the PSP is officially dead... well, deader.

Excited about the 3DS? Impressed by its potential graphical capabilities (wooh, sexy!). Why not share your thoughts in the comments section? And that wasn't really a question. SHARE THEM!

    psp is deader now, indeed. seeing how the 3DS looks im intrested to see what sony might bring around to counter it, im guessing just a psp with a hardware boost? i spose thats what i dont like about the psp, it always feels to me like a gameboy with pretty graphics

    im very excited for the new handheld and the graphics look top notch, but I'm somewhat disappointed that it probably won't be released till next year.

    The 3DS looks great but I won't say the PSP is dead, I'm still playing MGS:PW which you under rated Meiks
  • Darkhawk - June 23, 2010 12:34 a.m.

    I honestly never understand this "PSP is dead" stuff. For myself, anyway, I don't have time to play a million games per week, so there's still a huge library of PSP titles to get to. And if they even release one AAA title each year (a la Peace Walker) can't the system survive? reC: useless you

    Way to research Stray Gator you know your stuff. but we won't know how it looks until it is released. I know i won't be unsatisfied with this new system because it takes less time for games to load than on the slow psp seeing that cartridges are faster

    1. As impressive as the 3DS is, I begin to feel a sense of media overhype. Probably it's the rush of initial excitement following a positively surprising first impression. It's a new, powerful handheld that incorporates new technology that enables new effects / approaches, and is backed by impressive launch line-up, yes. It's not the second coming of Jesus Hasselhoff Christ, so try to contain the enthusiasm to professional levels. 2. The tech demo is probably rendered on a PICA200 chip connected to an optimized platform that feeds it data at the highest rate it can handle from a desktop-level CPU, also possibly using desktop-level cooling to maximize clock speeds. As all tech demos are, this shows what can be achieved under optimum conditions. I doubt the 3DS has a CPU that can manage scenes as detailed as this demo. Also, stereoscopy requires a different image for each eye, which effectively halves the resources the GPU can allocate to each frame. I'm not saying that the 3DS will have awful graphics. Merely that while all the videos on this page are representative of the 3DS power, this last video is not.

    I mean the 3DS will destroy the PSP.
  • skynetiscoming - June 22, 2010 3:36 p.m.

    Wow... That tech demo at the bottom was... Wow. The 3DS really has this much power?! Jesus Christ! That's incredible!
