Nintendo of America’s president, Reggie Fils-Aime, may have hinted that the smaller version of the New Nintendo 3DS could be coming to North America soon. Speaking to Kotaku at E3 2015, he suggested that readers “stay tuned and maybe some special SKUs might show up.”
While Reggie said that Nintendo had “nothing to announce” regarding the 3DS at E3, he did say that the company thought the 3DS XL and 2DS would be their best line-up.
“We analyzed the results in Japan and saw the lion’s share of the volume was on the XL model, and that’s with no 2DS existing in the Japanese market. And so as we thought about: ‘What’s the best line-up for us?’ We thought the new XL and 2DS would be our best line-up. Not going to make any promises but, you know, I would suggest to your readers that they stay tuned and maybe some special SKUs might show up.” — Reggie Fils-Aime
