Regular New 3DS Is Headed Westward In This Animal Crossing Bundle
Look alive, Nintendo fans! Nintendo has seen fit to grace us with the regular New 3DS rather than the New 3DS XL, and we'll be getting that on September 25, just in time for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, and as part of a special bundle! It'll be shipping with two special cover plates, an Amiibo card, and a copy of the game for $219.99. That's enough to get me to pick it up for sure, especially since I've seen so many awesome plates out there for the New 3DS.
There'll also be a special "Hyrule Edition" New 3DS XL available only at GameStop on October 30, which coincides with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. It's going to go fast, for sure, so before you swoop out into the night on Halloween the next day, pick up your bundle and preorder, preorder, preorder early!
The most important part of this bundle is the fact that the regular 3DS will feature the special colored buttons, in an homage to the original Famicom design. That's honestly one of the biggest reasons I want to get my hands on one of these babies. If that makes me a bad person, so be it, but come September 25, the Animal Crossing edition is gonna be mine.
