New 3DS headed to North America in September

Bundled with Animal Crossing stuff

It's been an unnecessarily long wait, but Nintendo is bringing the New 3DS to North America.

The handheld with swappable cover plates launches September 25, 2015 in a bundle. For $219.99, the package includes a white New 3DS, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, two cover plates, and a lone amiibo card. You'll have to continue waiting if you don't want those mandatory pack-ins.

Nintendo is also releasing a Legend of Zelda-themed New 3DS XL on October 23, 2015. The system is golden, has a Hylian Crest on the front, and is exclusive to GameStop. While it only costs $199.99, it does not include a copy of Tri Force Heroes, which launches on the same day.

Lastly, for folks who want to bring their amiibo craze to 3DS but don't want to purchase a New 3DS for built-in compatibility with the toys and cards, Nintendo reiterated that the standalone 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory will release on September 25, 2015 for $19.99.
