Well, we've finally gotten word of the Australian release date and price for the 3DS XL, and it's a case of good news and bad news I'm afraid.
The good news is the price -- $249.95. Seems reasonable enough, and in line with my expectations at least.
The bad news is the date -- August 23. Almost a month later than other territories.
Still, all up not too bad. Usually we get our Nintendo stuff in line with Europe, but we're not too far off the pace -- the US gets the 3DS only four days earlier on the August 19.
