Nintendo Direct: New 3DS Release Date Officially Confirmed

Nintendo fans in the West have reason to smile today as the company have finally announced when we can get our hands on the New 3DS.

During today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that the newest hardware would be arriving much sooner than many expected. It’s set to release one month from now in the US, on February 13. Pre-orders are now open at many major retailers, with the handheld costing $200 for the XL model. The regular-sized version was not mentioned.

Later in the conference, it was also confirmed that a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate limited edition bundle will be released exclusively at Gamestop.

The announcement comes after many days of speculation and rumours regarding the New 3DS’s release. According to Gamnesia, Gamestop revealed to them days ago that they had already received promotional material that promised a February release.
