Nintendo has been saying for a while that they intend to support the Nintendo 3DS for a while, including 2018 and beyond. When asked what they meant about that, they noted that they would be releasing more versions of the 3DS for players to get. At Gamescom 2017, a new version of the system was announced, with a catch.
Yesterday Nintendo revealed the small model of the New Nintendo 3DS would make its North American debut with the Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer bundle. Today the company announced there would also be a new model of the bigger version, the XL. It’ll be yet another Zelda-themed model, the Hyrule Edition, marked with the Hyrulian Crest commonly seen on Zelda’s outfits.
