Nintendo’s inevitable march toward global domination took an important step forward today with the launch of 3DS in Japan.
The system’s initial shipment of 400,000 units sold out almost immediately. That includes units preordered, and those that actually made it to store shelves before quickly being snatched up by same-day customers.
Word is that stores will actually be receiving a fresh shipment of the multi-screened, multi-awesomed devices Sunday.
So there you have it, the long awaited 3DS is finally out there in the wild, and 400K lucky residents of Japan are playing with them right now, probably in varying states of rapture.
