[Update: Nintendo has confirmed that DS games will still work, and to not expect an international release anytime in 2014.]

Nintendo has revealed yet another 3DS unit -- the "New Nintendo 3DS." It'll feature bigger screens, colored face buttons, a second stick (a tiny nub called the "C-stick," modeled after the GameCube), faster download speeds, a better browser, extra shoulder buttons, and amiibo functionality (NFC). The Nintendo Direct showed off the second stick with Monster Hunter, with the player manipulating the camera with the right nub.

Another bit of functionality Nintendo has shown is enhanced 3D. When viewing 3D effects on the side on a regular 3DS or XL, it'll become blurry. But on the "New 3DS" it'll be very clear regardless of the direction. Look at the gallery below for a visual representation of this concept.

It'll come in white, metallic blue, black, and metallic black, and will be available in both regular and "XL" sizes. It's coming on October 11th for 16,000 and 18,800 yen (for regular and XL respectively).

Right now it's just announced for Japan, but stay tuned.

Nintendo knows about the Smash 3DS Peach ban problem

As we previously found out, the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS is banning people for playing Peach online during competitive matches -- presumably because it mistook her turnip for an item hack. Nintendo is no...more

After less than week, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold over one million

According to a statement from Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold one million copies during its launch in Japan. It's great news that the series can still create such a buzz and sell that much product. The only thing that bums me out is that by the time the New 3DS hits in the US, all of the people I know will make the switch over to Smash Wii U full-time. Nintendo [Twitter]more
