During the first ever Australia Nintendo Direct, Nintendo Australia managing director Tom Enoki announced that the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL will launch in both Australia and New Zealand this year, on November 21.
"This will be the first launch outside of Japan, and there are no plans to release the system in America and Europe this year,” Enoki confirmed during the Direct.
When the system was first revealed last month, Nintendo confirmed that the device will be out on October 11 in Japan.
Unfortunately, it looks like those of us in Europe and North America will have to patiently wait until 2015. That's not going to be easy. I want that little C-Stick!
