Nintendo 3DS XL Stories January 7, 2016


Update (1/07 11:45am): Amazon has the Classic USB NES Controller for Mac/PC for $6.29 Prime shipped (Reg. $9+)

In today’s best game/apps deals, the official Nintendo Store is offering some notable prices on new and refurbished Nintendo 3DS XL handhelds right now. While even the new prices are solid, our top picks are the Super Mario Bros. 2 Gold Edition Nintendo 3DS XL and the Super Smash Bros. in Red or Blue Edition Nintendo 3DS XL refurbished for $130 each. Add $5 for shipping at Nintendo. That’s about $70 below the regular new price and the best we can find. They come with a standard one year Nintendo warranty and “Although it may have minor cosmetic blemishes, it is guaranteed to be fully functional. We think you will find the standards for Authentic Nintendo Refurbished Products are VERY high.” And remember the New Nintendo 3DS XL is still available at its lowest price ever on Amazon right now.

Nintendo 3DS XL Stories January 14, 2015


Following a successful launch in Japan and Australia last year, Nintendo today officially announced the New Nintendo 3DS XL for a North American release on February 13, 2015. The New 3DS XL has a faster processor than the original 3DS XL, integrated NFC support for Amiibo figurines, a second analog joystick with extra shoulder buttons, and fixes the original models’ 3-D display problems by using a new face-tracking camera.

Pre-orders for the portable will likely begin today, with four color options:

Nintendo notably declined to announce the smaller New Nintendo 3DS, which was released in Japan and Australia alongside the New 3DS XL last year. Expect to see many closeout deals on the older models on 9to5Toys starting today. We’ll update this post with additional preorder links as they become available.

Also announced today were two new collections of Amiibo figurines (see our Guide, here):

  • Super Mario Series: Due March 20, this lineup will include new versions of Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi and Bowser, plus an all-new Toad figure that will work with the Captain Toad Treasure Tracker game. All of these characters, as well as Rosalina, Donkey Kong and Wario, will work with Mario Party 10 for Wii U, which will be released on the same day.
  • Wave 4 Amiibos: Compatible with Super Smash Bros., new Charizard, Robin, Lucina, Pac-Man, Wario, and Ness figurines will be released later in spring.
