Nintendo Japan to slash 3DS AC Adapter price

Price cut planned ahead of adapter-less XL release

Nintendo is set to reduce the price of the 3DS AC Adapter in Japan, ahead of the release of the 3DS XL.


Nintendo isn't including an AC Adapter with the European or Japanese version of the XL ('LL' in Japan), and in response the Japanese plug is being reduced from 1,500 yen to 1,000 yen.

The new price of the official 3DS AC Adapter will start on July 12, reports Andriasang.

The 3DS XL is set to release in Europe on July 28, followed by North America on August 19 and Australia on August 23.
