Nintendo had a pretty big run last week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. Along with introducing a stellar new game system called the WiiU and several upcoming games, it also launched the downloadable game service for the Nintendo 3DS console. Several games became available, including Excitebike Classic and Super Mario Land, but perhaps one of the most intriguing additions was a downloadable trailer for the Green Lantern movie, which opens Friday.
In the introduction of media services for the 3DS shop, the Green Lantern trailer displayed in full 3D, giving owners of the handheld system a taste of what kind of visual effects the film will have. Granted, the 3DS screen isn’t as large as, say, a 52-inch Sony 3D display, but it did broadcast in fine clarity, and some of the effects look very good on the tiny 3DS screen.
The trailer is available to download now and is free of charge. This will no doubt be the beginning of several movie-based services to come on the 3DS, including Netflix (with full 3D support) and other downloadable media. Let’s hope we see more 3-D trailers to come. One for The Avengers would be pretty nice.
Directed by Martin Campbell, Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Peter Sarsgaard, Temuera Morrison, Tim Robbins, Taika Waititi and Angela Bassett. Gre
