Behold the New Nintendo 3D!

The "New Nintendo 3DS" has been announced. Short, but sweet details below:

Slimmer design

Faster CPU

Wider field of view for 3D

Micro SD Card slot

Better quality screens
new Nintendo 3DS has custom faceplates (the XL does not)

And here's a quick video to prove it.

This is the thread for general 3DS discussion. To keep the conversation from getting too busy, try to look for other threads before posting about something in here. For example, the eShop Thread is a good place to talk about Nintendo digital store. Big game releases like Mario Kart or Zelda also tend to have their own threads. There's no hard rule against discussing those games in here, but this is a nice place to talk about smaller titles that would be unable to sustain their own threads, and obviously those larger games can easily crowd everyone else out. Finally, don't be discouraged from making game-specific threads if you feel it warrants attention. This is sort of a catch-all thread.

    So after fidgeting around with my screen protector a bit last night I managed to clean up the majority of the residue I was seeing underneath it...I guess I jumped the gun a bit on the second screen protector purchase.

    Oh well, it's not like it'll go bad, and I may need a new one in the future anyway, I guess it won't be a wasted purchase.

    That's the fault of Craigslisters/eBayers. The print wasn't actually very small(1.39 million copies sold in the US as of 08/14), but first-party Nintendo titles(especially Zelda/Pokemon) have always been a big target for gougers. The original DS's Pokemon games go from $20-40 depending on the title and they've all sold a million billion jillion copies each.

    Nintendo games don't go down in price not because of gougers but because Nintendo does not lower the price. A $40 Pokemon game from five years ago will still retail for $40 today. Don't even get me started on how long I was watching Fire Emblem Awakening.

    I'm currently considering picking up the New Animal Crossing:HHD 3DS to replace my XL so I can play that and Xenoblade Chronicles. It's $300 though here in Canada and I'm on the fence of it being worth it. Comparatively I could just get the new AC for $40 and not worry about Xenoblade or the other little bonuses on the new 3DS. I'm also just afraid if I wait the console will sell out as it already has on Amazon and it seems like it will be limited. Thoughts?

    Are you asking if the VC games you bought on Wii or WiiU are naturally playable on your 3DS through some kind of account system similar to PlayStation?

    Short answer: Nope.

    Long answer: Hahahahaha nope.

    I loved Boxboy. It's pretty simple at the start but the clever puzzles start to creep in and it's really nice. Each level has special bonus collections and has a currency you can use to unlock cosmetics for your little box dude.

    I'm not sure if I'll get that one, but props for recommending a game I have never heard of. Usually when you ask forums about obscure 3DS games, you get responses like Pushmo or Mighty Switch Force.
