Australia Gets New Nintendo 3DS In November
Nintendo of Australia has announced today – via their Nintendo Direct Australia – that they will be getting the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL this coming November, November 21st, to be exact. The systems are set to launch in Japan on October 11th, so Australia will be getting them a little over a month later.
Nintendo of Australia managing director Tom Enoki said that, “This will be the first launch outside of Japan, and there are no plans to release the system in America and Europe this year.“
Hopefully some time mid-next year we will see the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL grace North America with it’s presence.
The system will be priced at AUD$220 for the New 3DS and AUD$250 for the New 3DS XL. The systems will not come with an AC adapter, though it is noted that all previous DS and 3DS adapters will work with the new handheld.
The new models of 3DS systems will play all previous DS games but will have games made for it specifically that won’t be able to be played on previous DS systems. The new systems will offer better battery life, extra controls, better graphics, improved CPU, and built-in support for Nintendo’s new Amiibo figures.
