Black Friday New Nintendo 3DS deals: Is it worth the upgrade?

Take note, the Best Buy sale is specifically for a New Nintendo 3DS, as opposed to a regular Nintendo 3DS. The new version of the hardware features a much larger screen, an improved 3-D graphics system which gives your head greater range of movement without losing the 3-D effect, and a second analog stick, on the right side of the system.

In part, what makes a potential release of Pokémon Sun and Moon on Nintendo Switch so exciting is the idea of playing a "main" Pokémon game on a much larger screen than ever before. In the meantime, if you have to play it on the 3DS, you can get the newest model for only $100. That's a damn good price.
