Nintendo has confirmed that its upgraded New Nintendo 3DS XL will arrive on Feb 13 in tandem with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D.
As such, a special black and gold edition version of the New Nintendo 3DS XL will sport Majora's Mask motifs and come bundled with the game.
Otherwise, a New 3DS XL will run at US$199 (RM718), charger not included — old chargers for the existing 3DS, 2DS and DSi lines will work just fine.
Support for the New 3DS XL continues in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, a portable version of cult Nintendo Wii adventure Xenoblade Chronicles, which is set to arrive in April.
And Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will also be made available for the New 3DS XL, again as a bundle in which the game comes pre-installed, with the pack's confirmed price at US$229 (RM826).
In comparison with the standard 3DS and 2DS handhelds, the New 3DS sports extra shoulder buttons, a second directional control nub, a larger screen, better battery life, NFC compatibility for use with Nintendo's Amiibo figurines and customisable face plates, in addition to upgraded internal components. — AFP/Relaxnews
