Guinness World Record for the First Stereoscopic 3D Console Game

August 7th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


The game Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao by Blitz Arcade, the downloadable games division of Blitz Games Studios has been honored with an interesting achievement – a Guinness World Record for the first video game to use stereoscopic polarized 3D. The award comes just in time at the moment Invincible Tiger is celebrating it’s first year since the launch of the game in August 2009. A 70s Kung-Fu movie-style side-scroller that follows the eponymous hero as he battles across ancient China to reclaim the Star of Destiny, Invincible Tiger is an excellent 2D experience in its own right but was also the world’s first console game to provide players with the option of stereoscopic 3D, where crisp and clear 3D depth of field can be viewed without sacrificing color or clarity. The game also includes anaglyph 3D, which is compatible with any TV and a pair of standard anaglyph glasses. It is interesting to note the fact that the game uses a native stereoscopic 3D engine that allows it to be played on different consoles by using different 3D-capable hardware, without the need for the game console to officially support S3D on its own. Now what we just need is to also get a PC version of the game.
