No, I'm sorry. Stereoscopes are of no practical use at all.

The Nintendo 3DS (ニンテンドー3DS Nintendō 3DS) is a series of handheld game consoles produced by Nintendo as a successor to the Nintendo DS series. It is capable of backward compatibility with Nintendo DS series software, including Nintendo DSi software. The original 3DS was released in Japan on February 26, 2011 for ¥25,000 and boasted the ability to produce "3D effects without the need for any special glasses" via a process called autostereoscopy. This was followed by the release of an XL model on July 28, 2012 and a budget model called the Nintendo 2DS on October 12, 2013. An improved version called the New Nintendo 3DS was released on October 11, 2014, with XL and 2DS XL models following suit.

Announcing the device on March 23, 2010, Nintendo officially unveiled it at the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 15, with the company inviting attendees to play with the console. According to industry analysts, the timing of Nintendo's original announcement, which had drawn attention away from the launch of the company's still-new Nintendo DSi XL handheld, was likely intended to preempt impending news leaks about the product by the Japanese press. The official release date for Japan was announced in a press conference on September 29.

Ace Attorney on Nintendo 3DS[]

The Nintendo 3DS has featured the most Ace Attorney-related game releases of any console when including all the re-releases, and includes the original releases of five of the games in the series, more than the three each on the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS and almost half of the series total. The following Ace Attorney titles have been released for the Nintendo 3DS family, listed in the order in which they were released in Japan:


The controls for Ace Attorney games on the Nintendo 3DS are nearly identical to those on the Nintendo DS. Although the microphone feature from previous games is absent in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, it is present in later titles, albeit now only becoming active via a small icon on the touchscreen, rather than holding down the "Y" button as was previously the case.

Acquiring three consecutive penalties during a single testimony will cause a "consult" button to appear on the touchscreen. Either pressing this on the touchscreen or using the "X" button will cause the co-counsel to tell the player which part of the testimony should be focused on.

3DS themes[]

The Nintendo 3DS console features a theme function allowing the owner to customize the appearance of their home screen. Themes change the colors of buttons and sounds used when navigating, and add background music and wallpapers.

All Ace Attorney games released for the 3DS have their own themes, except Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. That being said, themes for The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures, The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney are Japan-exclusive.
