A thinner, lighter case will house the new 3DS game cartridges. How do they decrease the weight?
A few days ago some images of the new Nintendo 3DS game cases surfaced on a Japanese retailer blog. These cases are more eco-friendly than previous game cases, as they use less plastic. The packaging seems to be reminiscent of Nintendo DS game cases, but with the 3DS logo on the opposite side of the box. They also appear to be thinner than previous game cases.
One of the game cases is for the new Professor Layton game, which is to be expected with Layton’s huge following and success in recent years.
Recently, Nintendo started manufacturing Nintendo DS game cases with less plastic and no Game Boy Advance/Rumble Pak slot, as seen in our DS Counterfeit Spotting Guide.
