We've just brought you news live from the E3 event out in LA, of Nintendo's announcement of a next-gen DS. The new model - the Nintendo 3DS - takes in the major trend of 3D and slots it into a handheld gaming console - and it's glasses free.

What Nintendo promises is greatly improved graphics, the 3DS will get a 3.5-inch screen on top, along with a 3D intensity slider (for increasing or eliminating 3D effect), and touchscreen below - based around the standard two-screen design.

Well, we've managed to grab a whole host of hands-on photos for you to take a look at, so click through and let us know if you think the new 3D handheld shapes up.
