Nintendo To Release Smaller New Nintendo 3DS

Due to the protest of the younger generation, which are fans of the Nintendo 3DS XL, the Japan-based mogul has finally announced that they are currently developing a lighter and smaller device which will fit the younger gamers. According to reports, Nintendo formally announced their pocket-sized series 3DS at GameStop's yearly managerial conference in Las Vegas, Monday evening. The report also stated that the tinier 3DS will come along with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, two Animal Crossing-themed spread plates, an Animal Crossing Amiibo card, a 4GB SDHC memory card and six increased reality cards on September 25 for $219.99.

The New Nintendo 3DS will flaunt features such as a second eraser-style thumb stick, an enhanced sound, a longer battery life, a speedier processor, and an eye following sensor that will balance out the systems 3D impact whenever the device is moved around or tilted.  

At first, Nintendo was doubtful and hesitant to release another version of the 3DS, because of XL's sales performance against the regular 3DS. The New Nintendo 3DS is rumored to be sold at $219.99, which is not after all a bad deal considering the add-ons included; such as the free games and the Amiibo card. The only downside is and when the player doesn't have the power adapter.

As per reports, the package will not include a power adapter, which is not a problem after all since power adapters of its older siblings will perfectly fit in it. Now, if worst comes to worst, the power adapter is not available, it is always available in any game stores for only $13 apiece. Nintendo is not a stranger to setting the bar high but eventually falls flat on their bellies, like what happened to their once promising Wii U. Hopefully, the New Nintendo 3DS won't take the same avenue like what Wii U took.
