Nintendo Japan's official website now lists all colors of the original Nintendo 3DS LL (Nintendo 3DS XL) device as "soon to be discontinued." Several colors of the original Nintendo 3DS, however, will remain in production.
The New Nintendo 3DS and the New Nintendo 3DS LL shipped in Japan on October 11. The new 3DS systems include a new analog c-stick near the A, B, X and Y buttons, which works similarly to the old yellow C-stick for the Nintendo Gamecube controllers, as well as new "ZL" and "ZR" shoulder buttons, positioned next to the existing L and R buttons. The new 3DS is also equipped with a micro-SD slot near the back of the system.
The new 3DS systems have near-field communication (NFC) technology, which allows the 3DS system to work with Amiibo figures.
