Nintendo 3DS launches with a bang in US

Last night saw the US Nintendo 3DS launch go off with a bang in Best Buy's Union Square in New York City.

The Big Apple hosted hundreds of Nintendo fans, according to Nintendo of America's official Twitter account, along with the company president Reggie Fils-Aime.

The US launch came two days after the 3DS landed in the UK, of course, when thousands of gamers across the country got their digits on the handheld.

An official UK launch event was held at London's Old Billingsgate in the lead-up to the portable's release, where BRIT award winner Plan B, rock band Hadouken and girl group Parade performed alongside live comedy from Russell Kane. Go and have a look at the snaps if you haven't already.
