Nintendo announces two new 3DS Systems for Fall 2015

Announced at the 2015 Gamestop Managers conference, Nintendo will release new new 3DS XL bundles this Fall 2015. The first up is a bundle for the upcoming Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer game, two cover plates and one amiibo card at a suggested retail price of $219.99. The more compact New Nintendo 3DS system joins New Nintendo 3DS XL, which has released earlier this year.

This is one system the gamers have been asking for ever since the smaller system was released in Japan but not in the North Amercian market.


The second is a new Hyrule Edition New 3DS XL, which will launch exclusively at Gamestop for $199.99. Releasing in time for the release of Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, this 3DS XL will feature a gold paint job and features an intricate Hylian Crest on the front. No pictures of the new unit were released.

Also announced during the conference was also the announcement of three new Wii Remote Plus controllers inspired by classic Mushroom Kingdom characters Bowser, Toad and Yoshi. These controllers will also be exclusive to Gamestop and will be priced at $39.99. The Bowser and Toad controllers will launch alongside Super Mario Maker for the Wii U console on the 11th of September, while the Yoshi version will hop on the back of the Yoshi’s Woolly World launch on Oct. 16.
