What just happened? I went to bed, got up this morning and the world I knew was gone. Nintendo actually did it. After a few years of fans saying the 3DS needed some changes they actually did them and they are glorious. Nintendo has announced that 2 new 3DS models will be released. They will not be calling it the 3DS 2, but it will in fact be called “New 3DS & New 3DS XL” . The new systems will be sporting new buttons, features and a new mini circle pad. Yes guys say goodbye to all those boats.
Honestly I feel like I have to pinch myself, and check the date to make sure its not April. This is the kind of new that you get and 2 hours later someone says “ops sorry just kidding”. These new 3DS will have new faster CPUs too that will allow them to run newer games, a new OS and more. The system will also be able to new use themes and will be able to sport interchangeable faces face plates. We wanted to back up our 3DS to our PC wirelessly, we got that too. Nintendo missed nothing in this update. Just by looking at the system you can tell they considered everything that their fans have been saying. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they will announce next that it will be region free.
The New 3DS models will be retailing at 16,000 and 18,800 yen respectively, which translates roughly to $160 and $188 in US. These prices are rough estimations so when they hit Western shores you can expect that they may be a bit higher. The system is expected to launch next year in Japan first.
Anywho i must now go as i have to acquire a gun. Why you ask? well its about time i carry that old wallet out back and put two in his side. Yep Nintendo has found a way to make me buy something that i already own all over again.
