A new Nintendo 3DS called “New Nintendo 3DS” and “New Nintendo 3DS LL” were announced in the Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning. The handheld includes a built in circle pad pro (looks kind of like a laptop nub) and includes ZL and ZR buttons, faster internals, NFC reader for Amiibo support, and if interpreted correctly enhanced 3D viewing (angle?). The price given at the end of the direct is 16000 ($154) yen for New 3DS and 18800 yen for New 3DS LL ($180). I swore up and down I wasn’t going to buy any new 3DS models, but I never thought they would upgrade the unit to run faster. Some of these changes indicate to me Nintendo is admitting they made some mistakes.
