Nintendo of America has yet to say when US consumers will be getting their hands on the New Nintendo 3DS. However, a source at GameStop has apparently revealed that the console will launch in the United States on February 13th. The company has apparently already received marketing material for the console in a few of its stores. This is just a rumour but it is expected in either February or March.

Feb 13th is a Friday. Nintendo usually releases stuff on Sundays. Both the original 3DS and 3DS XL were released on Sundays...

Noice! So soon :) I'm rocking a launch day Aqua Blue 3DS and it would be really nice as a post-exam treat for me to pick up a New 3DS, especially if it comes with 9.2> so I can use Gateway with it when they release N3DS support.

If Nintendo was smart they would have made them launch with force firmware update like the Xbox One :blink:

Let's look at what happened with the 2DS and its firmware.

The 2DS was released in most regions on October 12th, 2013.

The first batch of 2DS systems shipped with firmware 6.0, which was released June 17th, 2013.

6.1 was released June 27th, 2013. This was over THREE MONTHS before the system was even out.

So if the 2DS is anything to go off of, this means that a system will have between a 3-4 month delay behind the current firmware. So it's entirely possible the US N3DS will ship with an exploitable firmware.

ahh i hope gateway is waiting for their n3ds update so they can make it compatible with these release NA N3DS systems. Then I'll upgrade. I've read that gamestop is going to offer $75 and $100 dollars respectively for a 3ds/3ds xl to trade in and upgrade.
