The New Nintendo 3DS with swappable faceplates is coming to the US

Soon you'll finally be able to change the faceplates on a Nintendo 3DS. Today the company announced that the New Nintendo 3DS — which was previously available in Japan and features swappable faceplates, in addition to improvements like face-tracking 3D and built-in NFC capabilities — will launch in the US as part of a bundle with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. The handheld, the game, two faceplates, and an amiibo card will be available on September 25th for $219.99. Nintendo previously released the larger New Nintendo 3DS XL, which has the same features but no removable faceplates, in North America back in February alongside the 3DS release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. No word yet on when the smaller version will be available outside of a bundle.
