I assume Australia counts as "Not NoA" then?

I just think this is silly. You can't assume every customer has a spare Nintendo charger. I personally do, but you can't assume others do. Especially if you want to steal customers from other competitors.

Australia is mixbag land, you guys sometimes get solution form American market or the European market, always depending on the product. But since you guys do get overcharged so often, you would think they will give you guys a AC adapter and cradle for free. i would fire an email to them, although they probably do not know what a 3DS Xl/LL is, but at least they know someone isn't happy if it doesn;t come with a charger.

They could include an usb cable for charging in those regions, that would be cheaper and also useful than a standard AC adapter, but I doubt that.

I think Nintendo were assuming that a lot of people who already own a 3DS in the Nintendo of Europe (NoE) jurisdiction (which includes Australia and New Zealand) would already own a 3DS (or DSi or DSi XL), and thus wouldn't necessarily need a second charger for their 3DS XL if they got one. It's possible that the cost of the AC adaptor will be taken out of the 3DS XL price, and it's also possible that the AU/NZ version may include the AC adaptor in contrast with our European neighbours.
Personally, I always found it handy when they included chargers with all of their portable consoles, especially if I lost a charger (though I think that's only happened to me once), e.g. when the DS came out, it's charger was compatible with the one from the GBA SP.

They have been nice enough to bump up the included SD card from 2GB to 4GB.

The selection and pricing of downloadable stuff on the Australian eShop is pretty much an absolute joke though. The Nintendo AU site hasn't updated with the news from the Nintendo Direct video yet, might be tomorrow 'till we see what happens.

For reference, this is the Nintendo Direct for NoE that aired a few hours ago. The end of the video also includes a QR code that allows you to download the Metal Mario character if you have Mario Tennis Open.

By not including a charger, Nintendo assumes that they are only selling to their existing fanbase and no one else.

I understand the thinking, it's just so pessimistic though.

Tiny bit of news about the AU version of the 3DS XL:
It will be priced at $249.95, but it'll be released August 23 (later than other countries).

AC adapters go from 5-10 bucks online, even if they didn't come packed in here in the US, wallets wouldn't take a hit.
I think it's just the idea of having to take this extra step is bothering people, which is understandable since it should come with it.

It would be like buying a car, and then being told that you need to pay an extra few dollars to get the door handles separately. It isn't expensive, but you wonder why you had to do it at all.

If door handles were interchangeable, sure. Better analogy would be the gear-shift head, since at least on manual transmissions you can switch them out, but without one it's rather difficult to use.

I'm not happy about the XL. The bigger screens are nice, but I really question why it is needed, especially after they just said that they weren't doing more revisions and instead were just going to focus on a new handheld. I guess it's nice for people who don't have one yet, but it just feels too soon. And why not just include a second analog stick? O_o

The XL seems like a luxury if anything, so I don't see the issue in it existing.
The problem with the second pad at this point is that it would alienate those that don't want to upgrade to it. The games that might implement the second pad would be inaccessible to those with an original 3DS. Sure they have accessory for it, but I don't think they want people to have to resort to that, and developers might not want to implement two different control schemes to account for second pad and no second pad.

A title not mentioned here is EX Troopers. The game, or some version of it, will be released by capcom on the PS3 and 3DS. Game itself has apparently ties to Lost Planet, but what is more interesting is, rumours are it is based on MML3 concepts and code(?).
If you watched the japanese ND stream you probably got a glimpse of it.


The youtube videos found all have horrible compressions artifacts..

I missed this video, thanks
It's beautiful & I like the art direction. It also reminds me Burning Rangers.

Circle Pad Pro peripheral to be made for Nintendo 3DS XL. Also, the Kid Icarus stand is said to work with the 3DS XL.

Slightly disheartened that some people are hoping it isn't for the 3DS.
Just bite the bullet and get it for the games you want already! It's a good handheld!

Otherwise, it's really good news.

That is because they put their money on the wrong pony ^^
Really hope that it is a proper sequel, as in decent development budget, and not a browser/IOS/android game like what other companies are doing.
I mean TWEWY was SE (japan) best last gen title, it may not have been commercially successful as FFXIII, but it did ensured fans that SE still has what it takes to make great games. I am fine that they are doing successful blockbuster games, as long that finances titles like TWEWY, bravely default and so on.
