Last week Nintendo of Europe published a "New to Wii U" guide, and Nintendo of America decided that it wasn't to be outdone, no siree! NoA has gone for the video approach, releasing a series of "New Owner's Guide" videos covering the various functions and out-of-the-box features of the 3DS.

Conveniently, there's also a summarised compilation video that ties them all together. There are some repeated sequences — we sure can't get enough of that red 3DS XL into leather handbag shot — and a group of actors living in a perma-white boundary free world with StreetPass functionality that emits (probably radioactive) red signals but, hey, there's some helpful information.

Teasing aside, this video is relatively slick and a useful starting point for those interested in a 3DS and keen to know more. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
