Special TAG mode
Allows new era of communications ... 3Dses can talk to each other with no special actions by the user. Trade, get new items, etc... just by walking past a Wifi .. even if you're playing a game or the system is closed.
Games have to support the feature. No matter how many games you have, they ALL can "listen" in tag mode - running or not.
Motion Sensor and Gyro
Use the 3DS to move around .. like "aiming" in a FPS or control camera view. Very "instinctive" play. Steering controls. Binocular simulation.
Nintendogs + cats (in 3D)
- Kittens and puppies interacting in the same space
- Recreating the very realistic interaction between the two animals.
- Face detection technology - animals can "look" at your face and "recognize" their owners
- Communication without talking
- Tilt your head .. the dog can imitate you and tilt his head
- Puppies will be very unique and have personalities
- Depending on temperment - animals may be afraid of strangers, etc.
- Dogs have hair now thanks to higher resolution
