A worker in one of Nintendo’s factories has smuggled a 3DS off the assembly line, and given us a sharp picture to admire. Updated with a third batch of pictures.

You may remember the rough sketch of the 3DS that was leaked by an anonymous blogger many months ago, prior to E3 2010. Today, an employee from a factory manufacturing 3DS handhelds has snitched one from the line and taken it home – only to show it off to the Internet, of course.

The picture was supposedly posted on this forum, but the original thread has long since vanished. However, the moderators clearly weren’t quite fast enough, as the picture has already been saved and immortalized by eager fans.
