Looks Like The New 3DS Is Coming Out Next Month

Rumor suggests Nintendo's New 3DS—a poorly-titled yet excellent hardware revision of the Old 3DS—will be officially announced for North America tomorrow, and that it'll come out on February 13.

Though nothing is official yet, there's a lot of compelling evidence.

  • The above flier, via NeoGAF, showing a "2.13" release date.
  • A report from the fan website Gamnesia that also pegs the date as February 13.
  • Kotaku has heard from a number of GameStop sources that the retail chain is preparing to take reservations on the New 3DS starting tomorrow, though none of those sources were able to confirm that specific release date. [UPDATE (3:59pm): Shortly after publication of this article, a GameStop source confirmed to Kotaku that the above poster is real.]
  • Tomorrow at 9am Eastern there's a Nintendo Direct, followed by a media event in San Francisco. (Kotaku will be in attendance.)

Also: does that ad mean Majora's Mask 3D is coming next month too? We'll hear more in the morning. Stay tuned.
