- Adjustable depth: 3D images can be adjusted by volume and fee, and they can be viewed without the use of glasses.
- Input interfaces: Slide Pad, Motion Sensor and Gyro Sensor.
- Spot Pass: This allows for the 3DS to receive information wirelessly when in sleep mode. The device will seek out Nintendo Zone and wireless LAN locations and will grab information on the spot (see what I did there?)
- Street Pass: Similar to Spot Pass, but the 3DS will automatically exchange data with other 3Ds systems. A video detailed this with the exchange of users' Miis and Nintendogs.
- Built-in Software: Nintendo 3DS camera, Nintendo 3DS Sound, Mii Studio, StreetPass Mii Plaza, AR Games, Activity Log, etc.
- Download sales of games so that users can view intro videos and rankings.
- Transfer over software and data: For those who own a DSi or DSi XL, don't fret, as you'll be able to transfer your DSiWare games to the 3DS. Nintendo noted that there will be a limited number of software than can be transferred.
- Backwards compatible with DSi and DS games.
- Parental controls are also included with the handheld.
