Australian gamers will be able to buy the new 3DS and 3DS XL designs this year, making them the only Western Country getting a 2014 release.

Nintendo announced this during its Nintendo Direct Australia event last night.

The new designs were previously announced to be releasing in Japan on October 11, with both American and European releases slated for some time in 2015.

It’s not currently clear why Australia will be the only Western country to get a release this year.
