[Rumor] The New 3DS models set for February release
According to Ars and several other tech sites, sources from Gamestop have confirmed that the New 3DS and New 3DS XL consoles will be available at US retailers on February 13 and that pre-orders for the upcoming release will start as soon as today.

There currently is no announcement from Nintendo for the official release date and pricing for the new models, info that we expect to be disseminated over at the next Nintendo Direct.
Interestingly enough, according to the Gamestop source, the new consoles will also offer a trade-in promo (for those in the US at least) giving $75 and $100 for customers that trade in an original 3DS or 3DS XL for the new units. Also, take note of the games in the poster :D. Majora’s Mask and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate 😀
Can’t wait for the official announcement? Not to worry, the next Nintendo Direct will be tomorrow at 9am Eastern Time Wednesday morning :D.Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL
