Nintendo Reveals Two Customized New 3DS Systems Slated for This Fall

Jack Gardner


At the GameStop Managers Conference last weekend, Nintendo unveiled plans for two special New 3DS systems as well as themed Wii Remote Plus controllers and the launch of amiibo cards for use in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer.  

On September 25, a bundle including a New 3DS with two Animal Crossing-themed cover plates and a copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and an amiibo card will launch. The New 3DS included in this bundle will be the first of the line of a more compact, non-XL, version of the New 3DS which features detachable cover plates. The Animal Crossing bundle is expected to retail for $219.99. 

A golden Legend of Zelda version of the New 3DS XL with a prominently featured Hylian crest will be released on October 30, shortly after the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes on October 23. The system and game are sold separately. The system will be available for $199.99 and will be exclusive to GameStop locations. 

Three new Wii Remote Plus controllers were also revealed and are themed after Bowser, Toad, and Yoshi. These three controllers will be available only at GameStop. The Bowser and Toad controllers will be released alongside Super Mario Maker on September 11. Meanwhile, the Yoshi controller hits GameStop shelves on October 16, the same day Yoshi's Woolly World releases.

I really wish they'd released the Hylian Crest version before I received the Majora's Mask edition as a gift.  They're both gorgeous, but the hylian crest is stunning.
