While North America will be receiving the Galaxy Style 3DS later this week, Europe will be receiving a few new designs later this year as well. On November 11th, Pearl White, Orange/Black, and Pink/White versions of the New 3DS XL will be available across Europe. There is no word on whether or not these models will be available in other regions. Europe will also receive two new 2DS bundles as well. Both bundles will release on October 7th. One includes a blue 2DS and the original Yo-Kai Watch, while the other includes a pink 2DS and New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward.
In a recent interview, Fils-Aimé admitted that there are things that they have to do better with the NX when compared to the Wii U: “One of the things that we have to do better when we launch the NX – we have to do a better job communicating the positioning for the product. We have to do a better job helping people to understand its uniqueness and what that means for the game playing experience. And we have to do a better job from a software planning standpoint to have that continuous beat of great new games that are motivating more and more people to pick up the hardware and more and more people to pick up the software.”
