Nintendo Announce "New" 3DS and 3DS XL

Nintendo announced today in their Japan Nintendo Direct Presentation, new designs for the 3DS.

The new handhelds feature an extra directional button, trigger button and NFC support (for those Amiibo figures).

The "New" 3DS and XL feature improved sceens which let you see the 3D effect from more than one angle, meaning we can finally afford to move our machines a little bit when playing with the effect on.

The console also has a gamecube inspired C-Button, allowing for dual analogue control. Firmware updates are also on the way to let us pimp out our systems with Mario or Zelda themes.
