At the GameStop Manager’s Conference, Nintendo announced that the New Nintendo 3DS will be coming to the US this fall.

The New 3DS has a throwback color scheme to the Super Famicom, and the hardware has been upgraded to include a built-in NFC reader, face-tracking 3D, and more powerful processors.

The larger variant of the handheld, the New 3DS XL, first went on sale in North America back in February, but this marks the first time its smaller sibling will be available stateside.

The New 3DS will first be available in the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle, retailing at $219.99. This includes the system, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, two interchangeable face-plates, and an amiibo card.

Nintendo also announced The Hyrule Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL, which will be sold exclusively at GameStop and retail for $199.99. This system is gold, and features the Hyrulian Crest.

The Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer bundle and a stand-alone NFC reader for original 2DS & 3DS systems will be available on September 25th.

The Hyrule Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available October 23rd.
