Extra goodies enclosed!

With the 3DS release just over a month away for the non-Japanese population, what all will come in the box with the 3DS console? Well, we can assume the console, the AC adapter, and the instruction manual will all be there but there are some other, somewhat surprising, stuff inside. Hit the jump to see what new features the latest portable gaming console has to offer!

The 3DS stylus is different from the previous ones used. This stylus is an adjustable one. You can have the standard fit in the console size or adjust it out to a full pen size length. No need to worry about losing your larger length stylus!

Something totally new to the DS family is the docking station. With this cradle, you can keep your 3DS in sleep mode to download updates and such from the internet like you can with the Wii.

The 3DS will also come packed with a 2GB SD memory card. You can use this SD card to store your photos, sound recordings created on the 3DS, and music from your PC like with the DSi, just with a nice little change made. Music files supported are AAC (like with the DSi) and MP3. That’s right, you don’t have to convert your MP3 files! The SD card of course can also be used  to store games downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. The Nintendo 3DS system has SDHC card compatibility to increase your storage space even further for those that will use it for just about anything.

But that is not all! Look for an up-coming news post relating to the pre-installed programs and other software. It’ll be sure to knock your socks off!
