Kid Icarus: Uprising On Nintendo 3DS Won't Hurt Your Head

Remember Nintendo's previous 3D device that gave people headaches? Well Masahiro Sakurai has assured gamers that his upcoming title, Kid Icarus: Uprising releasing on the Nintendo 3DS won't blow your brain up:
“The screen on the 3DS is a really beautiful screen and achieves very nice effects. In my experience of development and actually using it, when you have a lot of objects flying towards the user I find that it’s more likely to cause eye strain so during development I’m using objects moving away from the user which doesn’t have that effect."

“The 3D certainly has a lot of benefits. You might notice that the bullets or shots have an arc to them. In standard shooters or FPS games you see the bullet travel to its destination and it’s just a dot because it travels in a straight line. But because of 3D technology you can use arcing shots and get a sense of a bullet traveling with real depth.”
Admit it. You want a Nintendo 3DS more than an 3D HDTV.
