Collectors and completists can always import if they wish to own all the variants. For casual gamers however, the new announcement is just a reaffirmation of Nintendo’s commitment to the 3DS platform. The company previously stated that they will continue supporting it beyond 2018 despite its age. The original 3DS came out in early 2011, while the 3DS XL came out in summer 2012.

It is also a nice way to cash in on the nostalgia trend right now, especially if you are one of unlucky users who could not order a SNES classic on time. One can always settle on an alternative like the Analogue Super Nt for example.

Pricing and Availability

The actual release date is November 27, 2017 and it has a retail price of $199 USD.
