Nintendo has a habit of changing very little and updating their handhelds slightly and still manage to sell millions of the “new”DS. This time they seemed to put more into this new handheld. I clearly sounding negative but I want one. I don’t know why they didn’t pair the new 3Ds with the Pokemon remakes, that seems to be a lost opportunity.
