The New Nintendo 3DS, with its interchangeable cover plates, is no longer in production. The news was announced today by Nintendo of Japan. The system hasn’t proved to be as popular as the New Nintendo 3DS XL, which continues to sell very swimmingly in Japan. The current models of the Nintendo 3DS will be the New Nintendo 3DS XL and the upcoming New Nintendo 2DS XL.
On Black Friday, Nintendo has announced that it will be selling 2 all new, “New” 3DS’ for only $99. The regular sized New Nintendo 3DS will retail for just $99 and will come with limited edition faceplates. This seems like an amazing deal and one way Nintendo will take the holiday season. Check out the images above and let us know if you plan on taking the plunge.

The footage will be showcased during the Japanese TV show ‘Gathering at the Pokémon House.’ The show will feature a number of special guests including Junichi Masuda, Shigeki Morimoto and Shigeru Ohmori who will be at hand to talk about the next instalment in the popular franchise.
We fully expect Pokemon to make a BIG splash later this year and we can’t wait to hear more regarding the two games. More as it develops.
Check out an amazing gameplay trailer of all the characters in Hyrule Warriors Legends for the new Nintendo 3DS or new Nintendo 3DS XL system. This character trailer pretty darn sweet if you ask us and it’s awesome that this franchise is headed to Nintendo’s handheld.

Enjoy the new Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer everyone.
Here is the official commercial for Yo-Kai Watch for Nintendo 3DS. Yo-Kai Watch is set to be the next big thing among the North American public so it will be interesting to see how the game does at retail.

Nintendo has begun rolling out another minor system update for Nintendo 3DS. Available now, version 9.7.0-25U adds further improvements to overall system stability and implements other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience. By this update we would imagine that the Nintendo 3DS is BEYOND stable and we can’t understand how much more stable it can get.
The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL have kicked off sales with healthy numbers during its first two days on sale.

Roughly 175k of the New Nintendo 3DS XL were sold in the U.S, while Europe tallied around 160k in sales from both models.
Nintendo has to be pleased with these numbers and we are eager to hear more. Did you get a New 3DS system?
