3DS XL announced (no, it does not have a second circle pad; it doesn't even ship with a charger!), and NSMB2 has Day 1 DLC.

Nintendo is making such great and consumer-friendly decisions lately!
It doesn't ship with a charger? How does that work, you just use it until it dies and then have to go out and buy a separate charger? Am I missing something?

Also, you must have been batpoop insane to think they would put new controls on a new model of 3DS. Adding more circle pads or shoulder buttons or what have you only makes for a completely different system. It just doesn't work on something that's supposed to still be a 3DS.

I really hate how I've made more than 12,000 posts here. Thankfully this swaying, moving Chandelure makes it all worth it.

It comes with a charger in North America. Battery life is only 30 minutes longer when playing 3DS games, 1 to 2 hours longer when playing DS.

3D is optional.
3d is half the point of the system
optional is a technicality

I seldom play with 3D on and my battery life is extended as a result.

Yes. It uses the same charger as the 3DS and DSi. Also, after I made that post, it was announced that it'll come with a charger in the US.

You should have read a few posts down before replying.

You really should know not to argue with zeph by this point.

Personally, I like the 3DS for pretty much every OTHER reason. The 3D is just icing on the cake.

Yes but then Tuppy said:
Nintendo has a history of not including the AC adapter with their systems, especially in Japan.

Which is the reason I asked.

Kirby's Pinball Land and The Sword of Hope II have been added to the library, along with Johnny Kung Fu.
 
Tomorrow's a very special deal for a discounted game. Mighty Switch Force will be discounted by half price off, costing only $3 dollars to buy. The deal will last from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th.
 
I'm so getting that. Friday 13th couldn't have been luckier than this.

The software lineup for the entire handheld domain.

Oh, Luigi's Mansion 2 got delayed to 2013 for some reason.

If the Wii U release rumors are true, Sticker Star's release is followed by the launch of a new system by less than two weeks.
