Nintendo previously explained why only the smaller New Nintendo 3DS was released in the United States, saying it wanted to make a clear distinction between the new and older models of the handheld clear.
"We're a different market," said Nintendo of America senior manager Damon Baker. "And now we have clear differentiation between those three systems. Before, there was a very limited difference between the 3DS and 3DS XL: other than size. It was the same resolution, same functionality... now, there's the 2DS, 3DS, and New 3DS XL, all of which have their own functionality and features."
"The different price points give it a clear message for consumers," he added. "The core audience... we weren't going to win with them on that decision. But we had to think about expanding the user base, we had to be able to market it and make it easy to pick up for consumers."
