We're still some time away from our next new hardware release from Nintendo, but it's always an occasion to savour. Before attention falls to sales, the library of games, online services and all of those shenanigans, there's that glorious first day when all is new, shiny and full of potential.

It's arguably even more exciting for younger gamers, those without generations of systems under their belts. New things are always exciting at a certain age, especially when those new things play video games.

This is a feeling nicely typified in a new video from the iretrogamer.com YouTube channel, which we've covered in the past. In this case the video host shares the exciting day when he was surprised with a Super NES on launch day.

It's rather charming, so check it out and share some of your favourite new console memories.
