Anyone in the UK got the email yet? Registering a 3DS on release day and then the XL along with a metric shitton of games should qualify me.

special edition? so like faceplates?
Yup, and it sounds like it might be the opportunity to buy one early too since it's not been officially announced yet for Europe.

It say's Ambassador - but I can't see any clear statement in their e-mail if you have to be an Ambassador from the past (non-XL 3DS pricedrop campaign).

Got one, but would like to have different colour scheme than white.

Wonder when they will announce the release date, after January 12th?

so nintendo direct on the 13th announcing a release by the end of January?

169 euros seems quite high though - £149? for the basic 3DS, not even the XL?

That ambassador faceplate is ugly as fuck, seriously. The Smash Bros. one looks fine, though.

Anyway, I haven't got a mail and I hope it stays this way. :p I want the New XL, but I fear that this offer would make me get a small one now.

I'd be tempted if there were more options, but I have no interest in a normal White New 3DS, especially at that price

IIRC, 169.99 is the current price for the OG 3DS (199.99 for 3DS XL). So...wait, is this a confirmation of New 3DS price in Europe, actually?

Just seen mine. £179.99
lol screw it then. Was going to get it as a gift, but considering importing an XL from Australia only cost £10 more while even getting hit with import tax, I think I'll just grab one from there.

Received it today too.


Eh... I'll bite ! Apparently games are running better on this N3DS.
They're not running better performance wise. Screens are better colour, 3D works very well now and speakers are better. You won't see framerates or anything improve.

169€ is the standard retail price for the 3DS. 189€ for the XL.

So did we ever get confirmation on whether or not the N3DS runs Pokemon better?

No idea if there's some sort of prerequisite for this (I'm a 3DS ambassador still) but if its limited, then I'm happy to help someone out.
I'm not sure what their criteria is. I'm an ambassador and have almost every first party 3DS game registered, but no email.
