Of course Nintendo of America continues to miss the point on these, and like the Smash Bros 3DSXL, in the States it doesn't actually COME with Majora's Mask. :no

AND it doesn't come with an AC adapter, for some completely inexplicable fool reason (though it is the standard 3DS/DSi family adapter, so there's that).

I held off on upgrading to an XL knowing this was coming, so... guess I'm buying this version anyways, but not pleased I have to get the game separately.

HOWEVER, just like the original 3DS enabled me to never have to deal with the atrocity of a controller that is the N64's for OoT, this version adds in a modern camera system with the c-stick, meaning it too is a huge upgrade over the original version and, meaning I can for once and all chuck my N64 in a closet forever. emoticon


On a tangential note, also revealed at Direct today...

NEW FIRE EMBLEM! Your pisspoor system bundle has been forgiven. I still love you!

I'm a bit puzzled by them not releasing the non-XL version here, but the lack of an AC adapter made me sit up and go "Dafuq?" It's one thing to sell like an iPod, or maybe a phone that only comes with a USB cable. You can charge it off your computer. But this comes with nothing. Out of the box, you have a $200 product that you can use for what, a couple hours tops and then you're SOL? I expect a backpedal on this, because it is a whole new level of boneheaded.

Anyway, I'll probably get one. I've been waiting for a 3DS redesign for a long time, and I'm hoping this is more comfortable to hold. The shoulder buttons on the original 3DS are physically painful. Amiibos are fun, and it's handy to have a second DS for certain Pokémon tasks. I would have liked to actually have the smaller one for portability, but it is what it is. Considering I paid $250 for my original 3DS at launch, $199 for an XL with upgraded hardware isn't bad.

Yeah, I thought it was like the Link Between Worlds bundle and had a digital copy of the game I had been wanting to get the XL, but I thought I would wait for this "new" 3ds. The better head tracking for the 3d is nice.
It's still up for Pre-order at best buys page.
Nintendo explained why no AC adapter. They said they wanted to keep cost down and it works with every charger from the dsi to 3ds xl. Considering you can buy a charger at game stop for 7 bucks. Not really an issue.

I have to disagree, it's a BIG issue.

They're selling a product that is fundamentally unusable as a retail SKU. Sure, for those of us making an upgrade (hell, i've got like 3 of those chargers), it's not a big deal, but for someone buying their first 3DS... say some kid getting one for their birthday, next chrismas, and the unit being non-functional until they go back to the store and buy a charger? Not cool.

Even less fun is the conversation every poor schmo working at gamestop/target/walmart/etc is going to have to have with customers. "oh yea, you also need to get a charger to play it". For the average angry parent buying this thing, that poor sob's gonna get an earful on probably every 1 of 3 of these sold. :lol

It's dumb, and Nintendo's excuse is even dumber. Those things cost like 2 bucks to make and barely add anything to the weight of the box. Seems like a cash grab to charge extra for it separately to me.
