  • Publication number: 20180154258
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game apparatus includes a display device, and a game screen is displayed on the display device. A play image including a player character, an enemy character, a ground object, a block object and a clay pipe object, for example is displayed as a game screen. If a capture instruction is input during a game play, image data corresponding to a play image at a time of input is acquired as captured image data. In the game apparatus, a reduced image of a captured image is generated and displayed in a manner superimposed on the play image. During game control processing is performed, processing that generates and displays the reduced image is performed.

  • Publication number: 20180133602
    Abstract: An information processing system includes an operation apparatus and a main body apparatus which is capable of communicating with the operation apparatus. The operation apparatus includes an operation portion and a transmitter which transmits operation data to an information processing apparatus. The information processing apparatus includes a receiver which receives operation data and a controller. The controller sets any of a first mode in which first information processing is performed based on the received operation data and a second mode in which second information processing is performed based on the operation data while a first application is executed, makes transition from execution of the first application to execution of a second application, and maintains a set mode when transition to execution of the second application is made and changes from one set mode to the other mode when a prescribed condition is satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20180126262
    Abstract: An information processing system includes an operation apparatus and a main body apparatus which is capable of communicating with the operation apparatus. The operation apparatus includes a first transceiver which transmits operation data to the main body apparatus. The main body apparatus includes a memory in which an operation scheme of the operation apparatus is registered, a second transceiver which receives the operation data, and a controller. The controller registers the operation scheme of the operation apparatus in the memory as a first operation scheme when the operation data received by the second transceiver indicates a first operation and registers the operation scheme of the operation apparatus in the memory as a second operation scheme when the operation data received by the second transceiver indicates a second operation, and performs processing based on the operation scheme registered in the memory onto the operation data received by the second transceiver.
