    Eh, I got so accustomed with my New 3DS XL, that I would find it too much of an effort to switch out.

    Wow Nintendo really can't win with this. Now people are mad because they got a XL instead since they didn't think it would be coming here at all and they should've been released at the same time. I'm still thrilled we get it at all even if it is late. Plus this might be a little tinfoil hat-y but I almost think this is another xenoblade type of deal where Nintendo didn't really want to bring it here but GameStop did and paid them for the exclusive rights. GameStop is the only one selling it now and I believe I read somewhere that this bundle at least is GameStop exclusive, although we could potentially get a small n3ds without HHD.

    Yeah, it just doesn't seem to work "right" no matter what course of action they take.

    In my case, I would have preferred a New 3ds reg., but I got the XL size since that was out at the time. Now, I'm so used to it, that I don't think switching to regular size would be all that beneficial. It almost seems like a few games look better on the XL size, like New Leaf and SSB3DS, but that could just be me.

    Ace Attorney 6 has been announced to be in the works and will be shown in this year's TGS.

    A small offhand comment confirms it will come to the West.

    The Great Ace Attorney is still MIA, though.

    I reluctantly bought a 3DS XL on launch day, but this is how technology works. Can't be mad, really. I am really hoping they release just the consoles, whether it's a Gamestop exclusive or not, so I can save some money.

    The Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle is NOT a GameStop exclusive. GameStop didn't confirm that. However, GameStop did confirm the New Nintendo 3DS XL Hyrule edition is exclusive. Unfortunately, the Hyrule edition already sold out.

    Yeah I already got a XL too since I figured it was never coming here but that's just how it works. I'm not about to be mad they I was impatient.

    Oh really? The article I read said both but it may have been a misinterpretation. I'm still not super convinced until it pops up on other stores though.

    I am fairly happy to see that NA is finally getting the standard-sied N3ds. I might be pushing my luck, but I'm hoping that either a standard size comes out in a nice color, or some sort of Fire Emblem/Pokemon bundle. Needless to say, I'll be waiting until early next year, most likely.

    I've been seeing people citing evidence that the NX will come out in 2016. If it really does encompass a new handheld as well, you've got to wonder if it's even worth buying a New 3DS now.

    Of course, if you ask me my opinion, the NX won't come out until 2017 at the earliest.

    Impossible, as no such evidence - in most definitions of the word - exists. What you've seen is people speculating based on whatever morsels of information make sense to them, accurate or not. Maybe some of the speculation is even reasonable and founded, but it's still speculation.

    Whatever it is you've been reading, best to ignore it for now. Just noise amidst the ether.

    Evidence not a single media outlet bothers or cares to take as fact because it is based on pure, wild speculation.

    I heard the 3DS was going to end soon according to an NX rumor. Hopefully the NX is portable.

    Personally, I'm looking at the new 3ds being my last handheld at least for a little while, at least until a couple years have passed of it being available to the public.
    I really kind of doubt a 2016 release though since absolutely nothing has been really been revealed. 'Rumors' don't count either, I'd rather see/hear from proper sources.

    People think 2016, regarldess of handheld or console variant, since the 3ds is on its last legs (and the n3ds isnt helping as much as it probably could have) and the wii u is...the wii u
    idea of nintendo can't wait out another year, basically

    reveal at e3 2016 for release that holiday feels really fast for a system they were just talking to third parties about this e3 feels beyond optimistic though

    As a rule of thumb, generally discard anything involving the bolded word. Again, it's just noise.

    I heard a rumor of a rumor that rumored that mentioned a rumor that Nintendo is rumored to do something in regards to a rumor that may or not be a rumor.

    That's their own fault really. They should have released it at the same time and thus giving options. Not after it's practically been confirmed to be a pointless upgrade.

    I wouldn't be surprised at it flopping. Those who wanted N3ds got it begrudgingly as an XL and those of us who wanted the standard size were subject to reviews and evidence pointing at it's superfluity.

    One hopes you were able to overcome that kind of struggle and oppression in your life.

    Already been addressed that this is very unlikely and based on speculation. Furthermore, Nintedo seems to be following the "5 year console cycle" model pretty closely. The third year (2015, for Wii U) they announce the placeholder name of the next console, year 4 they show a prototype, and when year 5 ends they release it. They've done this with the 64 to Gamecube to Wii to Wii U with very minor variations in the trend. I expect them to do the same and release NX either at the end of 2017 or early 2018.

    What an unnecessary retort if it was directed at me. I was simply stating that the criticism is justified because NoA did poorly in not releasing them simultaneously and that it will most likely flop for that reason.

    This assumes the n3DS will be released outside of the bundle

    About as much a flop as any given special edition whichhhh kind of its own issues

    A little much, don't you think?

    Your case for it "flopping" isn't terribly well-founded, at any rate. As mentioned, if they release it as a standalone product outside of the bundles at all, it will likely be in much smaller quantities in line with lesser demand.

    Oh! I didn't realize it was only as a bundle. That... Well, at least they covered their behinds then.

    No, your misunderstanding of what I was saying is "a little much". I never once painted myself or anyone else as oppressed. The reality is I had been interested in the n3DS standard size and, after it didn't come stateside, read reviews about how it was not even worth it (Especially when not many games I care for are out supporting it anyways). I posted the truth of what went down for myself and, I'm sure, others; never claimed to be the victim of anything (especially considering I'm glad it happened as I saved money).

    Even in "lesser quantities", this is a company that can barely move Wii U's, I don't think it'd be cost efficient at all at this point of the game to release it standalone tbh and I was comparing it to how much it could have sold if it was released alongside the XL.
