Gamer finds handwritten note inside second-hand Nintendo DS from previous owner

A gamer who bought a second hand Nintendo DS was blown away when their parcel arrived with a heartwarming note.

Janie, 23, had owned the computer console for over a decade before deciding it was time to part ways with it.

But before they sent it to its new owner, they wrote them a sweet note detailing all of the happy memories they had with it, reports Daily Star.

The letter reads: “Hey there! Thanks for buying.

“I got this DS as a birthday gift when I was 10. I had no idea who Link or Zelda were when I got it but I sure did by the end!

“And it travelled with me for lots of long rides.”

The note adds: “I’m 23 now and hoping someone else gains the same enjoyment that I did.

“Happy gaming/collecting! (or reselling… times are tough lol!)

“- Janie.”

The person who purchased Janie’s DS was moved by the “wholesome” experience and posted a snap of the note to Reddit.

Since being posted, it has received more than 88,000 upvotes and tonnes of comments from users who praised Janie for taking the time to write the letter.

One said: “What a friendly and understanding note. I hope to be more like Janie.”

Another added: “I hope Janie is doing well.”

And a third said: “Janie is a good person.”

Whilst others reminisced about the times they had with their Nintendo.

One revealed: “My mum got me this DS when I was 11!

“They only had so many per store and she waited for hours to get it.

“She’s gone now but it’s a wonderful memory I have. This DS is special. Enjoy!

And another said: “Oh man, I had this DS as a kid.

“I don’t know where it is now, but I really wish I could find it. Good memories.”
