Perhaps a launch date announcement is imminent?
A select few members of Club Nintendo have been given the chance to order the New 3DS and receive before anyone else in Europe...except everyone who ordered from Australia or Japan.
The edition includes:
- A white New 3DS with a special faceplate, a new stylus, a 4GB SD card, 6 AR cards and a quick start guide
- A Smash Bros faceplate
- A charging dock
This all comes to €200
The lucky bunch has until the 12th of January to order the New 3DS.
Here's the e-mail:
