High-resolution photographs of the original Nintendo DS design that made its debut at E3 2004 have made their way online thanks to Twitter user Evan Amos.

Amos, a self-described photographer of “high quality, public domain pictures of video game hardware and other things for historical preservation” released the photos yesterday in a tweet.


According to Amos, the photos were acquired through a filing by Nintendo with the United States Federal Communications Commission.
