Video Chat Possibly In the Works for 3DS

Nintendo’s 3DS is one awesome piece of technology.  It can play 3D games, classic DS games, 3D movies, and more.  Much more, apparently.

“Technologically speaking, a variety of things are possible with the 3DS, for example, 3D video chat,” said Satoru Iwata, President of Ninentendo, in a recent interview with Forbes magazine.  While a comment like this is far from an official announcement, this isn’t the type of thing the President of the largest game company in the world says for no reason.

Exactly how 3D video chat would work on the 3DS is a mystery, but you can be sure the guys down in Nintendo’s research and development department are hard at work making their unique brand of magic happen.  In any case, this is just one more thing we can add to the ever growing list of capabilities of the 3DS, the handheld system that’s poised to take over the market on release day.
