Today, Nintendo has FINALLY released their latest addition to their hand-held legion to North America. Simply called “New Nintendo 3DS”.
This new hand-held console has been out in Japan since October 2014 and November 2014 in Australia.
This is the 4th system in the Nintendo 3DS line, and improvements are damn well expected. With upgraded processors and increased RAM, the New Nintendo 3DS comes with a second analog stick (C-Stick), two additional shoulder triggers (ZR and ZL), face detection for optimizing the auto stereoscopic 3D display, a 4-gigabyte micro SD support and built-in NFC.
Even though it’s smaller than the previous Nintendo 3DS XL, this new 3DS will fit a whole lot more comfortable in your pocket. So whenever you’re visiting your mother-in-law, it’ll be WAY easier to pull it out and play it while you listen to her jabber about her next door neighbor’s roses.
The North America release of the New 3DS is part of a special bundle that includes Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Awwwww!! Along with Happy Home Designer, the New 3DS bundle will come with two cover plates and one amiibo card. All for the retail price of $219.99
So what do you think? Will you be trading in your XL’s for the New Nintendo 3DS? Let us know! Axial On!
