Nintendo Has A Midnight 3DS Launch In Melbourne Next Week

Perennial queuers currently lined up at Apple stores around the country get the chance to travel to Melbourne and do it all again next week, with Nintendo holding a midnight launch of their 3DS handheld next Wednesday night.

Hosted at the Swanston St EB Games Store in Melbourne, the 3DS will go on sale at midnight, with a special event running from 10pm on Wednesday night.

While it's unlikely to have quite the same turnout as today's iPad launch, Nintendo fans are only a few notches behind Apple when it comes to blind loyalty to the brand, so expect a decent turn out...
