Did you guys catch this morning’s Nintendo Direct video???  There was a lot of announced stuff this morning, including a new set of Amiibo figures being released, Wii games now available for download on the Wii U, and new DLC Majora’s Mask content for Hyrule Warriors!  But the biggest announcement has to be the new Nintendo 3DS XL!  The new Nintendo 3DS XL will have faster processing speeds, more control options, and will enhance gameplay on certain games by adding amiibo functionality!  Aside from the standard blue and red colors, Nintendo also announced a Majora’s Masked themed 3DS and a Monster Hunter 4 themed 3DS.

AHHHHHHH!!!  Look at it!  Soooooo shiny!!!!  Soooooo beautiful!!!!!!  If you are at a loss at what to get your honey for Valentine’s Day, you may want to grab this!  The only negative thing about the Majora’s Mask 3DS is that is DOES NOT come with the game.  But the Monster Hunter themed 3DS does and the price point is a little higher because of it.  The stand alone New Nintendo 3DS XL (including the Majora’s Mask one) will run for $199.99 and the Monster Hunter 3DS XL will go for $229.99.  The Major’s Mask and Monster Hunter 3DS XL will be Gamestop exclusives so you will have to get yours there.

You can catch this, and all other Nintendo Direct announcements, here.

So what do you think of this morning’s announcement?  Nintendo is starting off 2015 strong, do you think they’ll finally get some traction for the Wii U to compete with the Xbox One and the PS4?  Let’s hear it in the comments, friends!
