At the GameStop Managers Conference in Las Vegas, Nintendo announced the more compact New Nintendo 3DS system joins New Nintendo 3DS XL.
New Nintendo 3DS has all theÂ same features as the New Nintendo 3DS XL system, including a wider range of controls, face-tracking 3D and built-in NFC functionality that allows for communication with amiibo figures.
The New Nintendo 3DS system will launch in the U.S. as part of a special bundle on Sept. 25. The bundle includes the new hand-held system, the upcoming Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game, two cover plates and one amiibo card at a suggested retail price of $219.99.
The compact system also features interchangeable cover plates that can be easily swapped out to change the look of the device*. Two cover plates inspiredÂ byÂ Animal Crossing: Happy Home DesignerÂ are included in the bundle.
In addition, a Hyrule Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL system will launch exclusively in GameStop stores on Oct. 30 at a suggested retail price of $199.99, just in time for the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (sold separately) on Oct. 23. The system is gold-colored and features an intricate Hylian Crest on the front. So awesome!
