Wii U Gamepad supports 3D

Here's something we didn't know. The Wii U Gamepad supports 3D.

It's not the same 3D you'll be used to from playing the Nintendo 3DS, but rather the sort which requires you to use green and magenta 3D glasses.

Apparently the 3D factor can be activated at any time during gameplay by going into the options and changing the 3D settings at "Sterescopy" and, right under, "3D Strength". The stereoscopy can be changed from Off, to Inficolor, to Side By Side or Top Bottom. Also, the 3D strength can be measured from 0 to 10, depending on your visual comfort.

The first game known to support this 3D feature is Assassin's Creed III. The same game also allows you to play the entire game on the Gamepad if you wish to do so.

Thanks, Imgmr.

That's an interesting 'hidden away' feature, wonder why they didn't make a bigger deal about this sooner..

Be interesting to see if there's a reason why they didn't go with 3D without the glasses.

Cost would probably be the biggest factor to why they didn't use the 3DS tech.

Good point, adwan. *Goes to hang head in shame for not thinking the obvious*

They also wouldn't use it on a touch screen and grease and fingerprints reduces the 3D effect which is the reason only the top screen on the 3DS is glasses free 3D

The games should speak for themselves; 3-D is a gimmick that just won't die, unfortunately.

/agree Wish they would stop trying to shove 3D everything down our throats...

Wonder if they throw in the glasses to actually use it, if not I doubt I'll bother with it.

This is a feature can utilise later when they need a big marketing push against the next playstation and xbox. Has the potential to be truly unique if done well.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
