Nintendo reveals the "New Nintendo 3DS" and "New Nintendo 3DS LL"





Edit: Looks like Famitsu got to try out the console... can someone translate some choice excerpts? Article.

Edit : Dengeki Online too!

My wife can read it, she skimmed Famitsu article - they think the 3D viewing angle is incredible and it's also much clearer for a second person looking over the shoulder, even though Nintendo hasn't said so explicitly. They say the new stick & trigger buttons are well placed and work good but comfort will depend on hand size. When comparing the two, they say it's hard to pick which is better, cause the LL is easier to hold and has bigger screens, but the regular is still bigger than the old regular 3DS, and much lighter. You could pretty much just infer most of that without an article :D

Just announced during the Nintendo Direct.

I don't understand yet. Will need translated words later.

But I like that the buttons have colors.

Edit: Oh, that nub is a second stick?!


He's a pretty swell guy in my books anyway.
With a C stick?! Whoa. Wonder if games will take advantage of it and if it'll be any good to use.


New 3DS can't possibly be the final name?!?!?!

Seems like a bad idea to add more inputs. Gonna splinter the userbase.


How the fuck this isn't a global Director!? A new 3DS model with such improvements being presented for only Japan ATM? smh


whats with the nipple? Why not just add another proper circle above/below the buttons? weird. C-stick I guess, they'll consider it mostly used for camera adjustments
