New 3DS Leaked Advertisement

There is an image floating around the interwebs that shows what appears to be an advertisement banner for the New 3DS, the kind that would be spotted at a GameStop (which was rumored to be at stores yesterday).

The picture shows the New 3DS, Majora’s Mask 3D, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate with the apparent slogan of “Have you seen it?” and “Open a new world of gaming.” It also shows the date of February 13th.

There is no confirmation whether this is real or not, but it looks pretty real to us. Of course something like this is always possible to be faked if somebody puts enough time into it. But with the Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow and a media event after the Direct, signs seem to point to this being true. Especially since we know the New 3DS is incoming. Even Nintendo World Store is having an event tomorrow, for what it’s worth.

    Interesting note is that the amiibo support might hint at a new mario amiibo.

      It’s the same Mario they feature in a lot of their amiibo promos. I think it’s fair to assume after the Smash line completes we’ll get a new Mario amiibo. Maybe that one.

    I’m pre-ordering as soon as it is available. I’ll be goin the Gamestop route rather than than my usual retailer Amazon. I will trade in my old 3DS XL to ease the pain of having to buy another one so soon.

    I want to know if that c-stick is compatible with smash bros. If it is money’s gonna have to be spent.

    • Fisauleord

      It is (you can check some japanese videos)

      Oooo fancy. Don’t know why I never thought to look.
