Innocent until proven guilty. Nintendo CEO answers the allegations against the newest 3D game console.

issued a warning a few weeks after the reported danger of the 3D to children below six years old. During this weekend’s Nintendo World event, Nintendo had young children play demos in 2D and even asked the parents to stick a special sticker featuring the Toad character on their children.

Until now, here are still no concrete pieces of evidence or reported claims about the negative effects of 3D to kids.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo CEO Satoru defended the rumors.

“They’re not meant to mean that game systems are dangerous. Rather, Nintendo hopes to give its customers adequate information and protect against lawsuits.” Iwata said.

Iwata mentioned that some specialist believed that extended viewing of 3D video has its own negative effects to children’s eye sight. But he did not tell who are these specialists.

The 3DS packaging will be printed with words indicating the possibility of negative impacts when played by children for long hours. Both the instruction manual and system packaging will contain such messages.
