We all know that the Nintendo 3DS XL will be bigger, don’t we? Well, in a recent Q&A, Satoru Iwata sat down with some of his fellow Nintendo cohorts and asked them details about further additions to the 3DS XL.
In the interview, Nintendo Research and Engineering Department member Takashi Murakami said that they worked on decreasing the amount of glare one would get looking at the screen:
Reflectivity on the Nintendo 3DS was about 12 percent. We decreased that to about 3 percent.”
The reason in the past that Nintendo never got around to focusing on screen glare were cost issues. However, they said they were able to now and worked on the three reflective layers inside the LCD screen.
Also improved from the previous model were the 3D effects. Shoya Tanaka, another member of Nintendo’s Research and Engineering Department, said that the 3D effects have more range–partly helped by the increased upgrade in the LCD.
If you wish to see the full interview, you can go to the latest addition of “Iwata Asks” right here. So far, we’re basically looking at a 3DS with screens between 4-5 inches, decreased glare, and increased 3D effects. It will run at $199.99 US retail when released next month.
What do you think of the next 3DS model after hearing about some improvements?
