@Master Blaster The Japanese prices seem to indicate that they'll likely run around the same as the current models($200 for the XL and $170 for the small). I wonder if it'll replace the current models or if they'll continue to sell those with a bit of a price drop.
Pretty sweet, man. They've solved a lot of my little irritations with the 3DS XL. Like how the volume keeps accidentally changing while I'm playing. And those dumb Start and Select panels. I'm sold!
Hopefully, the volume level/speakers are decent this time, as well. The XL was kind of pitiful in the sound categories. I also hope that the 3D effect is better. I always thought the XL was a step down from the OG 3DS, in terms of 3D.
As for Xenoblade, I never bought it, so this seems like a positive thing. But can they really maintain the fidelity of the Wii game on this device?
