Nintendo has just announced in the very first Nintendo Direct Australia that we can expect the "New" Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL to launch in both Australia and New Zealand on November 21st.
The two new devices will be launching at a suggested retail price of $219.95AUD and $249.95AUD respectively. The New 3DS will come in a white colour, while the New 3DS XL will be available in metallic blue and black. There will also be a range of faceplates for the New 3DS, which you can check out below.
The new C Stick, ZL button and ZR button, which will enhance the play controls of the existing Nintendo 3DS hardware in compatible titles, have been added, and the new "super-stable 3D" function will provide players with a more comfortable 3D gaming experience. Furthermore, the new “NFC feature” built- in for these consoles will enable the use of amiibo.
In regards to the New 3DS, you'll find that the screen has been increased. as with the 3DS XL. For the 3DS the screen weighs in at 80.6mm high and 142mm wide, with the 3DS XL at 93.5mm high and 160mm wide. Not as much of a difference now it seems.
