New 3DS Headed to NA September 25th

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Mon Aug 31, 2015 5:27 pm

Rumor has it that the standard New 3DS (with faceplates) is headed to NA October 4th! The rumor states that it'll be Gamestop exclusive (bleh) and there will be a bundle with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer released the same day. Source

I REALLY hope this is true. Yeah, the Gamestop exclusivity is a bummer, but it'd still mean New 3DS FINALLY coming to NA. It's been available everywhere else for quite some time, and it's even coming to Korea soon too.


EDIT: CONFIRMED! Except it's actually releasing September 25th.

SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW. It took way too long.

I still don't care at all.
I have a 3DS, don't need another one.
At least they're doing it.

^ Nope, it released in literally every region Nintendo supports (iirc, don't quote me on that XD) except NA. It took them WAY too long, but regardless I'm glad they're finally doing it now.

Something tells me the regular model will only come in bundles since the plates would be amiibo 2.0 and GameStop likely give Nintendo decent money for a regular New 3DS bundle.

Pretty sweet to see the regular New 3DS is finally coming to North America. I guess it being exclusive to a retailer is a little disappointing for some but hey it's better than nothing right? I'm interested in getting it when it comes out, I'd rather buy the XL if I needed to upgrade. Of course it's great for anyone who wants the face plates and/or just a smaller 3DS.

Oh are the face plates confirmed or will they need to be bought elsewhere? Like Gameguy said they might end up like amiibo stock issues if they're not careful so maybe bundles are for the best. I still think they should have some face plates available.

^ Well the bundle includes some faceplates, but it hasn't been confirmed whether or not they'll be sold separately. Luckily that is one thing that obviously couldn't be region locked, so you can always import if they don't release some of them here.
