The Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL will be available for a suggested retail price of AUD$219.95 and AUD$249.95 respectively. While all this is good news for Australian fans, players in North America and EU will be disappointed to know that Nintendo is not planning to launch these new models in your region this year.

“This will be the first launch outside of Japan, and there are no plans to release the system in America and Europe this year,” said Nintendo

Also, fans in Australia should note that these new models will not come with an AC adapter but thankfully they will be compatible with old DS and 3DS adapters. Still, if you want to by a new one, it is available for AUD$15.
