Nintendo's AC Adapter Policy Isn't FairBrian Ashcraft1/15/15 7:30amFiled to: nintendo3dsnew nintendo 3dsnew nintendo 3ds xlkotakucorejapan96031EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink The New Nintendo 3DS XL does not come with an AC adapter. If you don't have one, you must buy one. Nintendo says there's a good reason for that. Whatever that reason is, it's not fair. The New Nintendo 3DS is an updated version of the 3DS, and it's truly a fantastic handheld. I cannot recommend it enough. I also recommend that Nintendo put AC adapters in the box when it releases the NN3DS XL, but their failure to do so is not a deal breaker (though it is annoying).
