New 3DiiS

Biig news today, as Nintendo have made two large announcements for the coming years. The first is that new models of the 3DS and 3DS XL were announced in this Nintendo Direct video, which sees the revamped models of the popular handhelds given a variety of upgrades. Faster CPUs are promised, as well as a new screen that gives off the 3D effect in larger angles, a C button which acts as a second analogue stick, NFC reading tech for the new Amiibo range of NFC figures that Nintendo announced at E3, a micro USB slot for extra storage and an Internet browser that supports HTML5. The only downside of these new 3DSs is that some games will require you to have the updated 3DS, as they have the more powerful processor. Still, those apples do, indeed, taste rather sweet.

The second big announcement goes out to any parent who's wallet is currently busted on buying Disney Infinity and Skylanders figures: the first wave of Nintendo's NFC-using cross-game Amiibo figures has been announced on Twitter, and it's coming out this year! If you didn't already have enough ii in your life! Anyways, the first line of figures consists of Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth, and the first game they'll be compatible with is Super Smash Bros for Wii U, where they'll be like physical Assist Trophies and will "Assist" (See where the name comes from?) you in your fight. Still, expect a lot more Amiibo compatible games next year.

What do you guys think? Do any of these new products tempt you? Tell us in the comments below!
