Finally, The Regular-Size New Nintendo 3DS Comes to America
Nintendo of America is finally about to catch up to the rest of the world, releasing the smaller, customizable version of New Nintendo 3DS on September 25. Of course, I hope you like Animal Crossing, since the new machine will at first only be available as a $219.99 bundle package with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.
It’ll also include two sets of swappable faceplates, which let you customize the look of your New Nintendo 3DS. In Japan, where New Nintendo 3DS was released in October 2014, 64 different faceplate designs are available for approximately $10-25 each. Nintendo of America released the New Nintendo 3DS XL, which is larger but has no customization options, in February.
Nintendo has not said if or when it will sell the New Nintendo 3DS outside of the Animal Crossing bundle, or when new faceplates might become available.
Just in case you want to spend even more money to acquire an Xbox One this November, Microsoft has a spiffy new bundle for its console. The Xbox One Elite has a one-terabyte hard drive, twice the onboard storage of the current $349 model, and it’s a hybrid drive with a solid-state partition that Microsoft says will store your “frequently-accessed files” for faster retrieval.
Additionally, it’ll include the upgraded Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, with more durable components, extra features, and customizable layouts, that it announced at E3. Said highly advanced controller will cost $150 on its own when it launches in October.
