Right from the very beginning, Nintendo has been upfront about potential health concerns relating to the 3DS - particularly for children looking at the 3D graphics. Reggie Fils-Aime stated a few months back that Nintendo "will recommend that very young children not look at 3D images." Now we're starting to hear about warnings for those playing the handlheld once again. Nintendo shared the following information today:

- Quicker eye fatigue as a result of viewing 3D
- Some 3D software can cause eyes to become tired quicker than other software
- Nintendo recommends players take a break after 30 minutes of play
- "If your physical condition worsens or you become ill, please stop playing at once"
- 3D has different effects on different people
- 3D slider allows a wider group of people to enjoy the system
- 3D not recommended for children under the age of six as the vision of young children is still in developmental stages (like 3D movies and television)
- "Since the Nintendo 3DS can be changed to 2D to avoid any effects on young children's vision, it is possible for anyone to enjoy playing it"
- Once again, there will be parental controls for 3D

It's not gonna be a problem to me; I'll eventually play with the 3D off most of the time... & only on the lowest setting! ;)

The games are all that matter to me though; like having the awesomeness of Zelda Ocarina of Time on the go... & also Zelda Link's Awakening the 3DS GBC VC!! :)
