Here's the new Nintendo 3DS being played by a ghost

Just in time for Super Smash Bros (if you're in Japan or Australia)

We got a sneak peek of the new 3DS and 3DS XL last month, but Nintendo has now unleashed a new trailer that showcases the handhelds in action.

It's a short clip, showing the console being played by some transparent ghost-like hands, with the focus on the new directional pad, improved 3D and NFC capability.

Both handhelds launch in Japan this October, and Nintendo has confirmed that they'll also be available in Australia and New Zealand on November 21. Unfortunately the consoles won't be hitting UK and US territories until 2015.

  • While you wait for that, is it time to invest in a Wii U?
