Nintendo’s announcement for the New 3DS was a bit odd to say the least. Not only would it not come with a charger, it would also only come in the form of the XL version, with no normal-sized version ever announced. Now, two new exclusive New 3DS’s are being released, with one of them being  a regular-sized New 3DS.

The combo pack comes with two different sets of face and back plates, a copy of the game, an Isabelle Amiibo card, a Nintendo NFC reader attachment, and the New 3DS. At a price point of $219.99, you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck. As well, you’ll be getting the ability to change the face plates at a moment’s whim, along with having the first regular-sized New 3DS in the North American market. The Animal Crossing bundle will be released on September 25th, 2015.

Nest up is another Legend of Zelda 3DS design, this time focused on their latest title, Tri Force Heroes. Priced at $199.99, you’ll be getting this awesome-looking New 3DS XL. Word of warning, however: you’ll still have to purchase Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes separately, since the New 3DS XL doesn’t come with the game. Tri Force Heroes releases on October 30th, with the exclusive New 3DS XL being released on November 6th. As well, this special 3DS will only be available at GameStop.

Update (9/1/15, 2:30 A.M. EST) : After selling out of the single devices for $199.99, GameStop has recently added a bundle with Tri Force Heroes for $239.98. Grab yours now before they’re sold out!
