    I've got no idea what he's saying (can't read or speak Japanese) but I'm watching and understanding everything. Right thumbstick/ZR? Replaceable outer shell? microSD slot behind battery cover?

    Please continue to take my money.

    Also, limited edition MH4G New 3DS (LL I think) and MH4G game bundle due in Japan October 11th

    I caught it very, very late in the stream. What I saw - Faster Wifi communications (and possibly increased rendering speed for web-based content?), inclusion of TrackPoint-styled right thumbsticknub and a ZR button, microSD slot behind the battery cover, and replaceable outer shell.

    I also caught the tail end of this portion but if I'm not mistaken, an IMMENSELY improved 3D viewing angle.

    If I understood correctly, the Xenoblade port use the additional CPU power of the new 3DS.
    So there will be "New 3DS exclusive" games.
    It also make sense as it has additional buttons that only exclusive games could use (unless made optional to use them).

    I like the new features/design. It should have been there from launch.

    I am definitely getting one of those XL's when it launches in NA. I already use a MicroSDs with all my 3DS's so it will not be a problem moving stuff to the new 3DS XL. the 3D parallax barrier auto adjustment for depending where you are in front of it pretty much makes it a must buy as I use 3D a lot and games like OOT:3D will be able to be playable with 3D on when it comes to using the hookshot via gyro.

    I wonder... will Metal Gear Solid 3D be finally worth playing with this improvement? Will the added muscle be able to compensate for its bad framerate? Same goes to all the current 3DS games?

    That's a good question. If it does upgrade the framerate I am definitely buying one then.

    Just buy the MGS HD Collection. I don't know why you'd want Metal Gear Solid 3 on a portable device anyway.

    Because it's my preferred platform, but that's a valid point though.

    Another thing... Xenoblade Chronicles is OPEN-WORLD, right? If the New 3DS can now boast of a proper open-world game, this opens the door to other open-world games... I wouldn't go so far as, say Dark Souls/II, but at least we now know it can be done feasibly. Plus the much-awaited 2nd analog nub could do the same for proper shooters. Those two itches, I'd like to get them scratched from a portable platform.

    EDIT: I just realized Dark Souls might not be open world, but free-roam. Yeah, that works for me too, as long as the game world is expansive enough in the sense that you can explore complex areas.

    I was kind of hoping for a Majoras Mask 3DS announcement. Xenoblades is cool and all but It's just no Zelda.

    It'll probably like what the DSi was to the DS. It has a CPU that's a bit more powerful, but how many and what exclusive games will appear other than Xenoblade we don't know yet.

    If the NEW 3DS can handle Xenoblade in 3D, I wonder if Pokemon ORAS or X/Y will be able to run in full 3D without any framerate issues.

    Nice, nice. They addressed many weaknesses of the 3DS in the new version. The only thing I don't like is to buy a new system.
