July 12, 2010 by The News Team Filed Under: Wii, Nintendo in general, 3DS

A portion of a Wired interview with Nintendo's Hideki Konno... There’s now an analog slide pad on the device. Is this additional control feature related to the 3-D graphics?

Konno: There is no direct relationship; it’s not that we created the slide pad because the system supports 3-D. But I have been developing console games for a very long time, and I think analog control is necessary. I want to have Mario Kart with analog control. Not only myself, but also Mr. Miyamoto was insisting that our next handheld have analog control. You mentioned Tag Mode, which will let users exchange game data regardless of what game they’re currently playing. So if I want to trade Nintendogs with someone, it’ll be saved on the hardware, not the cartridge?

Konno: In the hardware, we have the capability that when you first play a game that supports Tag Mode, it will save to a Tag Mode data slot in the hardware system. We are planning to support multiple games at the same time: Mario Kart, Nintendogs, Animal Crossing, etc. And so there must be a menu in the hardware where you can manage the data, delete the data for games you aren’t using anymore …

Konno: Yes, we’ll prepare a Tag Mode Viewer, where if you look at the viewer you’ll be able to see that, for example you were able to connect with 50 people in Nintendogs and got their data, or got 100 people in Animal Crossing. When I start thinking about data storage, I start thinking about downloadable games. 3DS will have some sort of downloadable game library, a 3DSWare, right?

Konno: I can’t talk about specifics today, unfortunately, but like WiiWare and DSiWare there should be downloadable content for this platform. There’s an accelerometer and gyroscope in the 3DS. Does that mean it pretty much does what the Wii MotionPlus does?

Konno: Yes, the same type of motion sensing is possible. Is it possible to make the 3-D screen bigger, or would that hurt the 3-D effect?

Konno: We can make it larger. In 2004, when the first DS was first shown at E3, we saw an exterior form factor that wasn’t final. Will the look of the 3DS be changed before its release?

Konno: You can take this as the final shape.

We think its Nice.

So the design actually won't change much i guess. I'm happy about it, but many people hate the look of it.
NEVER judge a game you have not played.

I just wish the shell would have a cleaner, tighter fit like the DSL.
