Hi, I've got the New 3DS (the one with replaceable cover plates) but it has a few problems. I've been thinking of buying a new one but I can't find a new one anywhere. The ones on amazon are used and some stores don't even have them listed! Where else could I find them?

@Peace-Boy I was thinking of doing that but I have multiple problems (SD and game card sometimes not reading and a very wobbly hinge).

Yeah? Tell them all your problems and they'll either fix them or send you a New 3DS.

@Peace-Boy I brought it in 2015, I didn't think they would give me a new one. It was discontinued here in Europe in July 2017 so I don't know if they'll have one.

Get a different model and let this one enjoy its retirement on your shelf.

Nintendo has some on their official store page (at least in the US). They are refurbrished but they're probably pretty good coming directly from Nintendo.

@Meowpheel I probably will in a couple years.

Thank you all for the help!

Why is New Nintendo 3DS not found anywhere? The 3DS is still in production.

I still see new 3DS/2DS consoles sold by Amazon in my country, first hand, free shipping with prime and all. (I am also in Europe).

197€ for a new 3DS and 139,99€ for a new 2DS.

If my N3DS broke down at this point, I would just go for a New 2DS XL instead.

@Joeynator3000 Me too, I almost never use the 3D effect, first because I own more DS game than 3DS ones and secondly because I see the 3D effect more of a novelty that I can't stand using for a long period of gameplay.

Unless the New 3DS XL is way more bulkier, better build, etc. Which I can't really tell because I've never had a New 2DS XL in my hands, but they look pretty decent quality...

3D was fun and awesome at first, it was basically a fad....now it's just...like, whatever. lol
Like you said I also can't deal with it for too long.

Good luck finding a regular New 3DS with the face covers. That version saw only a very limited western release. If you were in Japan you could get one used easily, but no matter the region, the standard size New 3DS is discontinued, so finding a new one would be pure luck and probably very expensive.

What do you want from Europe? heh

I've never actually seen one with faceplates sold over here, no wonder why they sell them so cheap now, they are on a 51% discount on Amazon atm (around 7 - 8 euros).

Too bad the 3DS systems are region locked.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Meowpheel True... but you could get many goodies on the japanese e-shop that we don't have here like Final Fantasy 1 for example. I'm actually really tempted on getting a New 2DS XL Pokemon edition because for some strange reason they are selling it 30€ cheaper than the black-teal/white-orange standard ones, it's new Euro and region!

I have the pokeball 2ds, the shade of red they used is beautiful and goes really well with the black buttons.

Also the pokeball design on top has a functional button to mash when you're bored.

@Meowpheel Does the button do something asides from the stress relief functionality? heh. They also sell a new italian new 2DS XL for like 100€ I wonder where they got it lol. My only concern with that one is that it might only be in Italian, I would have no problem on getting it if I can switch to at least English. Guess I should ask, any clue?
