While many gamers to were more than happy to wrap their hands around a New 3DS XL when it launched in North America earlier this year, some were confused as to why Nintendo didn’t bring its smaller sibling, the New 3DS, along with it. Those who prefer their portables to be petite will be glad to hear they’ll finally be able to get the smaller handheld without having to ship it from Europe or Japan.

The New 3DS will be available in a special bundle including Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, an Isabelle Amiibo card, an NFC Reader for the system, and two New 3DS face plates featuring Animal Crossing-inspired designs. This bundle will retail for $219.99 and will be available for purchase on September 25.

For those who prefer bigger systems and/or have an immeasurable love for the adventures of Link, a gold, Zelda-themed New 3DS XL was also announced. Strangely enough, the system isn’t being released alongside The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, but is instead coming out a week after, on October 30, and doesn’t include a copy of the game. This limited edition handheld will cost $199.99.

So if you are a hardcore Zelda or Animal Crossing fan, or have large or small hands, you pretty much no longer have an excuse for not upgrading to New 3DS.
