The Nintendo 3DS (
Nintendō 3DS
) is one of the latest installments in Nintendo's line of handheld systems. It is the direct successor to the Nintendo DS line. Despite its name, it is intended to be an entirely different line of systems from the DS line. Its main feature is its stereoscopic 3D capability, which provides a three dimensional effect providing depth rather than having everything "come at the viewer". It is also unnecessary to use 3D glasses to experience the 3D effect. Also unique to the system is its gyroscope, which allows for certain games to have their cameras manipulated without pressing buttons.

The 3DS also features a Virtual Console download service via its eShop online marketplace. Games from the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo Entertainment System are currently available. Sega Game Gear games are scheduled for sometime this year. GBA games are currently only available to "Ambassadors", people who purchased the 3DS prior to the price cut only a few months after the system's launch. Until recently, the NES games were also Ambassador-exclusives, but Nintendo is currently gradually allowing the games to be made available to the general public. All Ambassadors receive the games free of charge as compensation for the price cut, while everyone else will need to purchase the games. For the first month of the 3DS's existence, 3D Classics: ExciteBike, a three dimensional remake of the classic NES motocross title, was free of charge to all customers. A remake of the multiplayer-only The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, initially released on the GBA, was released as DSiWare with a single player mode added in celebration of the franchise's 25th anniversary for free on the Nintendo DSi and 3DS until February 2012.

Currently, only Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is available on the 3DS outside of Japan. It was released on the Nintendo e-Shop, but only made available to those who purchased the console before the price drop.

The Nintendo 3DS Bundle for Fire Emblem Awakening released in Japan on April 2012 and has seen a release of the North American bundle with the aforementioned title preinstalled in the system instead of having the game in retail. The game is available to download in North America and Europe only.
