So What's New with the New 3DS? | First off, let’s get the name out of the way - It’s stupid. Especially when the successor comes out, god forbid it’s another 3DS iteration. Anyway, the New 3DS is out and from what I have seen has been sold out considerably fast just like Nintendo’s brand of amiibos. It brought some new features that’ll help the 3DS in the long run. That begs the question: is it worth buying a New 3DS if you have an original 3DS? Well, that depends on several thoughts.
