Nintendo has released a spec sheet for its upcoming 3DS handheld, which has made some interesting revelations on the battery front. spotted the tech specs on the official Nintendo site, with the battery life being listed as approximately three to five hours, depending on the exact game being played and brightness level. Regular DS titles being played on the device will last longer, around five to eight hours.

Three hours sounds a little on the low side, although this is the worst case scenario (hopefully), and it’s still enough for a decent gaming session. It’ll take three and a half hours to charge the handheld back up.

The Nintendo 3DS does three dimensional gaming without the need for glasses, and is due to be released in March.
