New 3DS & New 3DS XL last-minute buyer's guide | Cheapest New 3DS bundles, retailers & prices

The New 3DS and New 3DS XL release this Thursday, and I daresay that many of you have already pre-ordered the snazzy new machines. Both models boast a new C-Stick, faster processor, more stable stereoscopic 3D, Amiibo functionality and smarter industrial design - but the smaller New 3DS allows for swappable faceplates while the New 3DS XL has a whopping great screen.

However, if you've been holding out, it's not too late. Though many of the special edition consoles are now out of stock, there are plenty of competitive bundles around for both the New 3DS and New 3DS XL.

We've rounded up most of the retailers with the most competitive prices and links so you can make your mind up! I'll be updating this live, too, over the next couple of days.

New 3DS XL

Nintendo

One of the cheapest ways to get your hands on a New 3DS XL is go go direct from Nintendo. They've got a range of New 3DS XL bundles available, so here are just a selection of the most competitive.

These two bundles represent great value as they include the power adaptor, well-reviewed launch title and a case for under £225 all-in!

GAME

Like Nintendo, GAME are out of stock of the special editions, but still have a few decent New 3DS XL bundles available with or without the power adaptor if you already own one. You'll also find some trade-in offers.

Speaking of power adaptors, you can buy a GAMEware Nintendo 3DS XL AC Adaptor for only £2.99.

Amazon France

Amazon UK is a bit of a dead end for decent New 3DS deals... but if you're willing to look further afield there are bargains to be had.

There's no power cable, so it doesn't matter that you're not getting a UK plug!

ShopTo

Some cheap New 3DS XL bundles here, actually, so long as you don't care about the adaptor!

Nintendo

Once again, Nintendo are probably the best bet as far as New 3DS bundles go. Again, here are a couple of the smartest bargains.

There's also a Build Your Own New 3DS bundle offer, which gets you the console, cover plate and console holder or £159.99!

Amazon

As before, Amazon UK are a hot mess, but Amazon France are doing le business.

Fancy picking up the New 3DS on the cheap. Well, you can pre-order from Amazon France for 154.75 Euros (before inexpensive delivery), which works out to around £121.38 at the time of writing. You don't have to pay import taxes, and seeing as the New 3DS doesn't come with an adapter, you don't have to worry about the continental plug either. You can also get it in white here.

GAME

GAME's New 3DS bundles are unimaginative but fairly solid. Here are the smartest deals.

Remember the power adaptor!

...Amazon France are doing le business...



Languages were never my strong point. Can someone give me a translation?

Sadly Matt was our resident terrible French accent perpetrator... I mean, fluent French translator... so we may never know. :P

I think it's something to do with garlic, but hopefully someone more au fait with the language will be along soon to clarify.
