New Nintendo 3DS arrives in North America on September 25th


Nintendo of America has announced plans to release the smaller New Nintendo 3DS model in North America later this month.

The news was shared at the GameStop Managers Conference in Las Vegas, at which a special Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle was revealed. This will include a copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, two cover plates inspired by the game and an Animal Crossing amiibo card.

This follows their decision to only launch the New Nintendo 3DS XL system back in February, after which fans complained that they would have preferred to purchase the more compact system that allows consumers to swap interchangeable cover plates as they wish.

The Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer New Nintendo 3DS bundle will release in North America on September 25th, priced at $219.99.
