Its is 3d. Its hard to explain. Its a way of 'natural 3d'

Basically...

One of the ways your brain interpret depth perception in real life is that your left and right eye see slightly different images. Stereoscopic images exploit this by creating two different 2-D pictures that differ in a way similar to how the scene would appear to your eyes in real life. Seeing this, your brain interprets the two different images and causes you to view it with an immense sense of depth perception.

The 3DS' screen is specially made that it does the same thing with the in-game image (producing 2 slightly different views of the same scene) and filters the entire screen so that, when viewed within a certain distance, your right eye should see one image and your left eye should see another, duplicating the above effect (called "stereoscopic vision").

I'm not sure I understand. There's two separate images, but on a single screen?

Denus: Thanks for the explanation. Wouldn't the need to keep your face a constant distance from the screen be difficult though?

It's like looking at a "Magic Picture" you need to look at it for awhile and let your eyes adjust to see the effect, if you look away or tilt the DS, the effect will be gone and you'll have to readjust. I see myself playing with the 3D option just turned off most of the time...

From what I hear there's a "bubble" where the effect works perfectly. Leave that bubble, and you get a fuzzy image. And the bubble is pretty small. I hope most games don't rely on the 3D as it's main gameplay device.

Lol it's nothing like the ''magic pictures'', you don't have to stare at it for a while before you see the 3D effect. Stop misleading people with your false assumptions and go read more about it.
