Nintendo Updates 3DS Hand Held Console to Record Video in 3D

In an attempt to raise sagging sales of its 3DS hand held, Nintendo is planning to allow 3DS owners to record video in 3D.

The company announced the console would receive a firmware update in November, which would allow people to record 3D videos on the device. 3DS already allows gamers to play 3D games without requiring special glasses.

Nintendo said that the new 3D feature will allow users to ‘create their own original 3D productions’ and even view the videos on the console, as reported by Cnet.

November seems to be the decisive month for 3DS as Nintendo also plans to launch a bunch of new games for the console, including the first ever 3D version of the much loved Mario game and also the new The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is going to feature more than 100 minutes of cut scenes.

The company also announced that it will be launching a new attachment for the console called the Circle Pad, which will bring a right thumb joystick to the console, giving users better control over the games they play on the console.
