Nintendo 3DS Safety Manual

Nintendo 3DS Safety Manual

Nintendo 3DS Safety Manual

by Steve Napierski to Comics

On the home page, I kept seeing images from the Japanese version of the Nintendo 3DS instruction manual [1]. Why? Because they were the banner image for last week’s new releases [2]. Regardless, this repeated exposure to said images inspired me to create some of my own Nintendo 3DS warnings and here they are.

While on the topic, you might also find G4′s translation of some of the actual warnings from the Japanese version of the Nintendo 3DS instruction manual quite humorous [3]. I know I did.

    Is it wrong that I laughed hardest at the penis cover jokes?

    Kotaku had a ship contest a few weeks ago using the 3DS warning screens, and the winners were pretty good.

      Does that mean I will have to drop it into fire at the end of the level?

      In the event that it does speak to you, Nintendo recommends that you ignore it.

      But… that’s basically tossing a net over every piece of tech ever made. And if you’re so critical of those consoles, then it begs the question; What are you doing here, on a video game webcomic?

    I’m surprised no one else has pointed it out… Your link to the 3DS manual appears to be broken. There’s part of an HTML tag in the link that shouldn’t be there.

    Now, change 3DS to DSLite and change it to “things to use your DSlite for now that there is a 3DS” and you have a whole new comic. Bam!
