Been waiting for the regular sized new 3ds ever since the new XL announcement late last year, it's.. finally.. HERE! Patient gamers, let's go!!

Question is.. Do I import faceplates or wait and hope we get the same variety in NA?

Just import, NoA is terrible. Even if they offer some other plates, they will probably sale out in minutes, or the selection will be way poor. I actually imported a soft carry case and the wooden Mario plates last year. I was planning to sale them this holiday if the standard never made it here.

Import them. Most of the popular ones are long gone though. If you can find them on somewhere like Amiami that doesn't require a forwarding service or expensive shipping, they're fairly cheap.

 

Edit:

 

Zelda #55 is just over $20 shipped.

 

KK Slider is even cheaper.

 

Pikachu even cheaper still.

Oh boy. Now that there is another limited edition Zelda 3DS XL coming will this thread jump to 100 pages with people trying to find these. It was entertaining reading all the posts from people trying to find the MM 3DS XL in stores and complaining about scalpers. Good Times. :-P

I'm not sure if this has been discussed but I hope someone finds it helpful.

 

The Zelda console is obviously exclusive to Gamestop. Like with the black ops juggernaut edition each store is getting a set amount, and then closing preorders. It wasn't available at my store earlier but an employee called me and said it's not in the system and they are only taken preorders for ten units and then closing preorders (restrictions to one per customer).

Damn I would trade/sell my Link Between World 3DSXL towards this but I can't transfer my stuff without having both systems in hand and since Nintendo still doesn't have a real account system yet.....

It's still avail online so maybe they are producing a lot more for online?

Of course, right after I buy the XL, they bring the faceplate model to America.

 

That price is a bit steep, no? The standard XL is $200, but the smaller model with a game bundled in is $220? Nintendo playing hardball.

 

They're certainly doing something with our balls.

Employee said preorders are now open, they weren't however around 7PM EST. It's a $50 in-store deposit. I'm sure each store is getting a varying amount of units depending on their volume.

I can't speak about online orders though, that's a whole different animal. They could cut those off anytime or they could remain open for a long time depending on demand and how many are available.

Next year is Zelda's 30th Anniversary so they will.

Has Nintendo announced they're going to bring faceplates over to the States (or at least make them available online) for the New 3DS?

I agree. Love the creativity. Need one with Reggie side stepping the question of us getting the new 3ds non XL. How will they market this to the soccer moms?

I'd be more interested in the Zelda if it didnt look basically like the MM one. And I have the Link Between Worlds XL too.

 

I'm hoping for an Fire Emblem console

Oh, didn't know the regular New 3DS was coming to North America.

 

Wow, this looks amazing. Would totally get this if I had the money.

Guess I need to figure out what the going rate on a new Majora's N3DSXL is now. Guess I'll see if I can unload that so I can get the AC one.

If the animal crossing was XL, I'd have preordered already.

I kinda like this design more than the MM New 3DS XL, but I already have a few limited edition 3DS XLs and don't really want to start collecting systems (at least any more). I think I'll pass on this.

Spoiler
Yeah, design is like nothing I've ever seen before!  :roll:
