The Famicom 3D System is an accessory for the Family Computer that was only released in Japan in 1987. The 3D System consisted of a pair of liquid crystal shutter glasses that received video signals through dual 3.5mm jacks on a special adapter. It gave compatible games the illusion of 3D depth, like the Master System's SegaScope 3-D Glasses. With the exception of Falsion, games would play in conventional 2D until a "3D mode" was activated by use of the select button.
