[E3 2010] Nintendo 3DS Screenshot Compendium

After hours of downloading and file converting, I bring to you a compendium of screenshots for the current 3DS game lineup. Unfortunately there is no way to see how the 3D effect performs in a still image, but you can still at least get an idea of the system’s software offerings and graphical horsepower. For the most part, the 3DS appears to be push visuals on par with the PSP: some games even look a little better, others actually a little worse. Of course, the more impressive-looking titles — like Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil — are either tech demos or cut scenes, but real games like Kid Icarus: Uprising, nintendogs + cats and Paper Mario prove the system has plenty of juice.

Start off with these Kid Icarus screens and work your way down. If I can scrounge up pics for any other 3DS titles, I’ll be sure to update the list. Enjoy!
