I'm a huge Nintendo and Disney nerd. I enjoy Video Games, Podcasts, Weird Music, Dudes, Flannel, Pizza Rolls, Cheeseburgers, books, and television. My favorite Pokémon are Tepig, Litleo and Dedenne. Oh and Charizard. Yeah. I've caught 718 Pokémon.
Just when you thought this week couldn’t get any wilder, Nintendo goes and reveals a new 3DS and XL model for Japan.
The new line also has a new stick-ish button on the right side that replaces the need for a Circle Pad Pro, a more powerful CPU, a wider stereoscopic 3D sweet spot, colored ABXY buttons, two additional shoulder buttons, NFC support (for Amiibos!), extended battery life (up to 7 hours) and a replaceable battery, and HTML5 support for the built-in browser. It also now uses Micro SDs instead of SD cards. Check out the removable back!
The standard system features a 3.88-inch top screen (compared to the 3.53-inch top screen in the original 3DS), while the new XL screen is the same as the old one at 4.88 inches. Both release in Japan on October 10 for ¥16000 ($154) and ¥18800 ($181), alongside a new set of charging docks.
This is today’s entry into the Smash Bros pic of the day series. It can’t be a coincidence that the first letter of each option spells out E-Shop, right? It also can’t be a coincidence that there’s a 3DS-centric Nintendo Direct scheduled for tomorrow, right?
Each pack is priced at £7.00 or the UK, or around $11.60. The listings note, “As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.”
