I'm feel the same way...extremely disappointed.  I was ready to be a day 1 buyer of the N3DS but have no desire to run out and purchase the N3DS XL.

Why is that? I'm actually impressed they didn't try to stagger the releases and get people to buy both.

 

I have a problem, y'all. I'm trying to finish OoT:3D, much like I've been trying to finish OoT since it released, and let's just say it's not my favorite thing to spend time on. I'm in Jabu-Jabu's Belly. I hate it. I hate the controls, I hate the camera, I hate the combat because of the controls and camera. Are there tips for enjoying this game in 2015, or do I just need to move on with my life?

The XL is personally too big for me. Then again, I found the OG 3DS to be a great size.

Though if it could at least use faceplates I could live with it.

Spent 13 years starting and restarting OoT. I did finish it on the 3ds, but before that I always stopped around the water temple. If you feel that way while inside jabu jabu, then I say give it up. If you ever get around to finishing the dungeon you are on, you have 6 more to go (I think it is 6). Then the final dungeon that has multiple parts to it. Not to mention finding the heart pieces and the upgraded sword. You haven't even gotten halfway through the game. Maybe a quarter of the way through.

I actually made it to the water temple way back in my dorm days, but I was playing on an emulator with an underpowered PC. It was unplayable. Thanks for the response.

Basically the screen...visuals on the XLs are much more pixelated in my opinion.  I also thought the interchangable faceplates would be fun but that's not a deal breaker for me.  I'm just going to be patient and see what comes...maybe this is a move to clear older skus at retail (doubt it).  If not, I can be patient enough until either the next gen handheld is announced or more must have N3DS games are released (I already have Xeno Chornicles on Wii).

Now I have a problem. Buy a New 3DS or keep my LE Majoras Mask.

If Amazon gets the MH bundle I will give Amazon my $. Not going though GS since I have to pay now.


I haven't been charged still, you won't get charged until it ships

I would only get this day 1 if there is a retailer sale, I also have gift cards and credit to work with so I have to take that into consideration as well.

How do you people expect Amazon to get the MH bundle when it's a Gamestop exclusive?  Doesn't that seem like a foolhardy endeavor?

 

ANNNNNDDDD... I waited to take a flight home and the MH 3DS is now sold out at Gamestop... FML... Does Nintendo hate people throwing money at them or something?

late to the nex 3ds party. How come the new 3dsxl doesnt have faceplates? Damn! That sucks. I was hoping to pick an xl down the line to retire my pikachu xl. Hehe! Hope nintendo does revamp the xl version to have those faceplates. And considering us doesnt get the regular 3ds makes me dissapointed even more

Amazon will probably get the MH bundle through third party scalpers resellers.

My one complaint about the New 3DS XL. While the MH one does look very nice which I have ordered, I would of still loved the ability to put faceplates on it.

 

Only 24 or so more days. My excitement is building to have an XL to finally go through my backlog. I have the original 3DS but that small screen was kinda annoying at times for me.

The new 3ds also seems to have the smaller d pad like the original 3ds... It also does not come with a charger

Amazon doesn't sell Nintendo consoles directly, you have to buy from a 3rd party..I assume this one will be the same

I'm hoping that after the release date comes and passes, I can find an import EU New 3DS on Amazon. I already have a JP 3DS, and don't want another. I just want a New 3DS to go with the N3DSXL I'll pick up when I can. 

 

EU units are hard to find on Amazon. JP ones are easy.

Either the system just came out or they are coming out very soon in the EU. I remember seeing the ambassador ones just come in like 1-2 weeks ago and they were pre sale from Nintendo before they hit the stores so give it a few weeks.

Even the original 3DS/XL.. there are no or hardly any EU models, just JP and NA. I'm hoping that changes since I'm not fond of Play-Asia (and get my Amazon credit through various online sites for free).

Agreed. So many posts around the internet are basically saying "So what they're just faceplates?" and "If the XL had faceplates you'd buy that one." when folks seem to misunderstand that the faceplates mean little-to-nothing to me...it's the overall smaller size of the hardware I want more than anything.

I streetpassed with someone yesterday (National Streetpass Weekend), and some far away person already had all special pieces for Super Smash Bros! I guess that person was running around to all hotspots in their city...or homepassing like crazy.

Must be nice... no one around me Street Passes... I go to malls.. MAYBE 1.. generally it's my 3 3DS' streetpassing each other.  Real shame.  I'd have loved to get more done before I move.  My real sweet spot was Otakon.  Everyone there brought theirs.  But then I was literally on it trying to clear faster than it'd collect people and missing the entire event I paid money to attend.

I go to a shopping center near me most weekends. I like to have breakfast at Starbucks, then I walk to McDonalds for Streetpasses, walk through the store and out the back door, then I walk to Home Depot, walk around the store usually filling up my Streetpass allotment, open the system to have to start processing the first 10, then usually gather another handful before I leave Home Depot and walk back to Starbucks. I call it getting exercise. :D

That puzzle was available in Japan for a while. They probably did a lot of Homepass.

Sorry to derail, but I thought it would get more attention here. Anyone have experience replacing a 3DS XL Circle Pad?Mine just broke off :(, I made a thread to take the conversation there

OK, I have 2 regular 3DS systems. Both have NNIDs attached. System A is my main gaming system while System B is my secondary unit with my Ambassador games. Can I transfer my info from System A to System B and redownload the Ambassador games, or would the licenses get erased when System B's NNID is erased?

Is $150 a good price for a NEW Super mario Bros 2 "gold" 3ds? Have they been cheaper?

Anyone seen that / got an opinion on the likelihood that it's legit?

Dunno where to ask, but if I system transfer from a 2ds to a 3ds will an animal crossing save file be lost on the 2ds device? I want to transfer pokemon to my new 3ds but don't want to mess up my fiancé's save files.

the system you are transferring to is reformatted and wiped completely clean, and once the transfer is finished the original system (in this case the 2DS) is restored to factory settings. every single setting and save file will be copied to the new system without question.

There's a new Spotpass Mii being sent out for E3 - Regginator.

 

I wonder if they'll do one for each day like the year before last. Hopefully, some new puzzles too.
