The Nintendo IC is a system made by Arend (tbc) and (mainly) his brother. The IC is a portable game system. Aside from only games, it can also play other programs and other media. The idea of the IC was already made in 2008. The two brothers made ideas for a game system for Nintendo with a camera, SD card slot and a Download Shop. The brothers didn't know Nintendo was that predictable, because some months later, the Nintendo DSi was confirmed to be released (which had all the special features the IC had).

Like the Nintendo DS, the IC makes use of a touch screen and multiplayer can be played wirelessly, locally and online). IC games are not cartridges, but mini disks. The IC has better graphics than the DS systems (around Nintendo GameCube and Wii quality). The IC has 3 GB (or more) space, so, unlike the Wii and DSi, players don’t have to worry about how much they download.

With the built-in camera and microphone, photos, sound clips and videos can be made. Some games make use of the camera and microphone. Players can also store other music, photos and videos. With the SD card slot and the mini USB slot, media can be transferred and saved on the IC. The IC Program Store sells programs for the IC. Connect to the internet to see what they sell. The player can download IC Classics (classic games for the IC), IC Ware (new games for the IC) and IC Applications (items for the IC). The player can purchase them with Nintendo Points. As a bonus, the IC Web Browser and the Mii Maker are also installed on the system.

The IC also has the feature to connect with a Nintendo VR system with certain games, most likely for multiplayer games, but also to send demos from VR to IC.

A late 2010 update can make the Nintendo IC to Nintendo IC+. The Nintendo IC+ has, like the Nintendo 3DS, a slider button that can give the screen 3D effects to most things. For IC+ users whose IC+ originally was a normal IC, they can still change it from 2D to 3D via the IC Home. The update is important, since some games requires 3D effects (if a game has 3D effects, it is indicated with a + on its box).


What does IC mean? That's mainly up to the player. IC sounds like I (can) see. This is a reference to the very wide screen. IC is actually short for I Computer. This system has many customizable options, to make it your system.

The background is simple. The color of it changes depending on which menu you currently are. It's gray in the Main Menu, blue in the Main Options section, red in the Programs section and green in the Multi Media section.
