Pokémon Sun and Moon Dropping Stereoscopic 3D in Battles

October 12th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized


Both GameXplain and IGN report that battles and the main portion of Pokémon Sun and Moon will not make use of the 3DS’ stereoscopic 3D function.

IGN’s Jose Otero also said he was told that only Sun and Moon‘s Pokémon Snap-like Poké Finder mode would support 3D.

Previous mainline Pokémon games on the 3DS used stereoscopic 3D sparingly, usually restricting it to battles. When the feature was active, there would be a noticeable drop in the game’s frame rate.
