No, not that Yoshi
, but the real, officially licensed critter with a penchant for chomping Goombas and dropping eggs. Nintendo's 3DS
handheld has, according to 3DS Buzz
, been stolen from a Chinese manufacturing factory and leaked all over the Internet. This version is a little different than what we saw at E3
and even the "official" version from the September 29th announcement
, the Select, Home, and Start buttons having been made flush into the screen bezel. Also, a 1300mAh battery is confirmed, as is 96MB of RAM. We have another picture of it below, showing it's size compared to everything from a Game Boy Micro
to a DSi XL
, nicely demonstrating that Nintendo's new hotness is a little bit smaller than even a standard DSi
. That's progress for ya, folks.
: David T. wrote in with a video of the thing in action -- well, in non-action, really. It's embedded below, and as you can see the poor backless 3DS is decidedly non-functional.
