Nintendo never runs out of idea when it comes to gaming. No wonder they are on top of their respective field. They are introducing a new portable gaming console in the 3DS family. For gamers out there, you wouldn’t dare to miss this gadget!

These innovations define Nintendo’s brand — but it’s not the only hallmark of Nintendo hardware.
