Online gaming publications Eurogamer and Joystiq have been told by Nintendo that the “New” Nintendo 3DS console won’t be coming to North America and Europe until 2015. The newly announced console with an improved CPU is launching this year in Japan.
“Different territories make their own business decisions regarding individual products and timing,” a Nintendo spokesperson told us. “We plan to launch these products in Europe in 2015.”
“As for the overseas markets, our local subsidiaries will separately confirm. However, there will be no U.S. and European launches this calendar year.”
