When Nintendo announced the New 3DS XL this morning, fans had one big question: where's the smaller one?
In Japan, where the New 3DS launched last year, there were two versions of the system: LL and XL. The LL, a smaller model that's around the same size as the original 3DS and has customisable faceplates, went on sale alongside the XL in the east.
But in North America, only the XL is for sale. We asked the folks at Nintendo of America for an explanation, and here's the (non-)statement they sent over:
Different territories make their own business decisions regarding individual products and timing. We think New Nintendo 3DS XL makes the most sense for our market. Nintendo makes different systems at different price points for a whole range of consumers, and New Nintendo 3DS XL simply expands those choices even further.So Nintendo, is it ever going to come out here?
We have nothing to announce at this time.Oh. OK.
