New Nintendo 3DS and XL ⊟
Just when you thought this week couldn’t get any wilder, Nintendo goes and reveals a new 3DS and XL model for Japan. Europe will also receive the new portables next year, according to CVG. If we get a U.S. release date, I expect it to be for 2015.
The new line also has a new stick-ish button on the right side that replaces the need for a Circle Pad Pro, a more powerful CPU, improved 3D viewing angles, Super Famicom-esque colored ABXY buttons, two additional shoulder buttons, NFC support (for Amiibos!), improved battery life (up to 6 hours on 3DS, 7 hours on XL), and HTML5 support for the built-in browser. It also now uses Micro SDs instead of SD cards. Check out the removable back!
The standard system features a 3.88-inch top screen (compared to the 3.53-inch top screen in the original 3DS), while the new XL screen is the same as the old one at 4.88 inches. Both release in Japan on October 11, alongside new charging docks. The standard edition 3DS comes in White or Black for ¥16000 ($154), while the XL in Metallic Blue or Black will go for ¥18800 ($181).BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games

The 3DS just got a lot more customizable ⊟
Nintendo really gave the 3DS a facelift! The new standard models (not the XL editions unfortunately) coming to Japan will allow users to swap out its bottom and top covers with various designs, making it so they don’t have to buy limited edition hardware or apply decals just to get a new look for your system. You can see all the designs announced so far here.
Not only that, Nintendo announced new Home menu themes (e.g Animal Crossing, Zelda, Mario) with special backgrounds, icons, folders, music, and sound effects are coming next month with a system update — this will be for all 3DSes and 2DSes, presumably including the new hardware!BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
Wow, these look a lot more detailed than I expected! Nintendo’s first line of interactive figures will feature 12 characters, each selling for $12.99 this holiday season. Wii U games like Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, Mario Party 10, and Yoshi’s Wooly World will support the figures, as will other upcoming titles — the 3DS will eventually connect with them too using an NFC accessory or the new 3DS’s built-in support.
You can preorder all of the figures right now on Amazon. We’ve also got more photos after the break. I like how the colored lines in the Amiibo logo are the same as the ones on the *new* 3DS logo.
In addition to a new Smash character, today’s Direct brought us news of a redesigned model of the 3DS, with more new features than you can shake a stylus at.
Most prominent are the newly added C-stick and ZR/ZL shoulder buttons, offering more control options. The C-stick can be used in…
