Nintendo will release the New Nintendo 3DS, the smaller version of its new handheld that features interchangeable cover plates, in North America on Sept. 25 as part of a special bundle with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, the company announced today.
The bundle will include Happy Home Designer, two cover plates and one amiibo card and will retail for $219.99.
Nintendo of America started selling the New Nintendo 3DS XL stateside in February, but unlike other regions, didn't bring over the smaller version of the new handheld — which includes colorful Super Famicom-style face buttons. The New Nintendo 3DS line of handhelds include more powerful processors and a built-in NFC reader.
Nintendo announced today it will sell the separate, stand-alone NFC reader accessory — which is compatible with original Nintendo 3DS and 2DS models — starting Sept. 25 for $19.99.
Additionally, Nintendo will release a GameStop-exclusive version of its larger New Nintendo 3DS XL handheld. The "Hyrule Edition" New Nintendo 3DS XL system will be released on Oct. 30 for $199.99. The new gold-colored system will launch a week after The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, which arrives Oct. 23.
