We brought you the news of the New 3DS Retro Plate & Watch way back in July, but the time has finally arrived for those preorders to be fulfilled. Naturally Nintendo Life chum Nintendaan is at hand to take the bullet and give it a try.

Taking inspiration from Nintendo's classic series of Game & Watch devices, the Retro Plate & Watch actually looks really cool. That said we're not really convinced the outside of your 3DS really needs an LCD clock, alarm, timer and most bizarrely of all a thermometer.

If you'd like to get your hands on one of these, you can do so from Amazon Japan for 2,503 Yen (£13.50 / $20.70). Take a look at Daan's unboxing below and let us know what you think.
