New Nintendo 3DS XL bundles for Animal Crossing and Tri Force Heroes coming this fall

A pair of New Nintendo 3DS XL bundles have been unveiled, one for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, both set to arrive this fall.


The GameStop Expo is set to take place in Las Vegas in a couple of days, but not before the GameStop Managers Conference, where some news has already broken. In particular, a couple of new New Nintendo 3DS bundles have been unveiled, each containing one of Nintendo's marquee fall releases.

The Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle will feature an Isabelle-designed (and more compact!) New Nintendo 3DS. It'll also feature two cover plates, an Amiibo card, and a copy of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. This bundle is set to release on September 25 for $219.99.

Those that are willing to wait a few extra weeks can also choose from a new Hyrule Edition New Ninteno 3DS XL. This gold-colored handheld with a Hylian Crest on the front will come with The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. It will retail for $199.99 and release on October 23. This, however, will be a GameStop exclusive.

As for Wii U owners, they'll soon be able to pick up some new Wii Remote Plus controllers based on some of the Mario series of characters. New controllers based on Bowser and Toad are set to arrive on September 11, the same day as Super Mario Maker. A Yoshi Wii Remote Plus is set to release on October 16, alongside Yoshi's Woolly World.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
