New 3DS XL Coming To America In February, Smaller One MIA

Illustration for article titled New 3DS XL Coming To America In February, Smaller One MIA

The New 3DS is coming out on February 13, Nintendo just announced. This release date is no surprise given yesterday's leaks, but now it's official.


It looks like we're only getting the New 3DS XL—no smaller version. In a video presentation this morning, Nintendo America president Reggie Fils-Aime gave us a walkthrough of all the new bells and whistles, which include new shoulder buttons and a revamped 3D function that tracks your face—no more sweet spot!

The new system will cost you $200. Our Japan folks say it's great. It'll be available in both red and black when it launches, and it won't include an AC adapter, so keep your old 3DS ones around.

I'm so disappointed that Nintendo of America is jipping us on the option for the smaller model as well as swappable face plates. I was really excited for that way of personalizing the system. Japan and Europe get those and we don't? It's really frustrating seeing NoA continuing to do things like this. Poor planning regarding the Gamecube controller adapter, amiibo distribution, thinning Club Nintendo rewards, and now this.
