Unboxed and unleashed

We've got the New Nintendo 3DS in the office right now and in-between gazing at its rock-solid 3D screen and fondling its nipple-like C-Stick, we somehow found the time to record a special unboxing and hands-on video, which you can view below.

The new console — currently only available in Japan — is the latest in Nintendo's 3DS range and offers a raft of improvements over previous models, including a better screen, faster performance and NFC tech — the latter of which will make the system compatible with the forthcoming amiibo interactive toy range.

Let us know what you think of the console so far by posting a comment, and be sure to check out our review from yesterday while you're at it.
