The Nintendo 3DS system is more than just a leap forward in 3D gaming technology. It is also an incredibly robust entertainment device, with built-in features and applications that are accessible right out of the box.

It is social. 3D photos, personalization, and wireless play make it easier than ever to share the fun. It is connected-more than any Nintendo system or console before it. And once you get your hands on the Nintendo 3DS system, you will find it hard to ever put it down.


Your portal to all of the amazing software on the Nintendo 3DS system, the HOME Menu is accessible at all times. Pressing the HOME button during game play automatically pauses the game and lets you resume play later. Need to search the Internet for gaming hints?
