News of a shiny new 3DS upgrade- along with a Xenoblade port—came as a pleasant surprise to many Nintendo fans this morning, but don't expect to see the New 3DS in North America or Europe this holiday.
With the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. just two weeks out from its release in Japan, Nintendo is holding little back. Today, they've tossed up five minutes of mostly in-game footage for us to look at. If you have any nostalgia for Nintendo, you'll enjoy this.
That number includes around 130 full-time Nintendo of Europe employees—as was reported in June—and an additional 190 who worked for the company's Germany-based localization department by way of a leasing agency.
Nintendo has always had a special knack for making gorgeous themed cases for the 3DS. For new model 3DS announced this morning, they're doing one better: releasing standalone face-plates that allow you to customize your personal console.
A Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate-New 3DS XL bundle will be going on sale in Japan on October 11. It will cost 25,600 yen, or roughly $245, and it includes the game, and a 3DS XL unit from Nintendo's upgraded 3DS line.
