Nintendo 3DS XL 2015 teardown: inside the tiny computer

There's really nothing too next-level about this little gaming machine - unless you consider all of its processing power and super-refined hardware.

Nintendo 3DS Easter egg lets gamers play Breakout

This only works for the latest version of the Nintendo 3DS, however, so those with the previous version won't be able to replicate it.
