Home Your IT Entertainment Nintendo takes 'eco-friendly' a bit too seriously

Nintendo Japan has unboxed its new Nintendo 3DS game cases, which are the same as previous ones... but with 'eco-friendly' holes.

It seems like Nintendo is trying to do the right thing, and the cases are 15% lighter, but the cases are less visually appealing than their predecessors and surely won't make a massive difference in carbon emissions, or waste.

The photos come from a Japanese retailer, and while it isn't known whether Australia, or the rest of the world will use the same game cases, we will soon find out as the system launches locally March 31st.
