The New Nintendo 3DS will cost £155.99 in the UK and €169.99 in Europe when it goes on sale later this year, Nintendo has revealed.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL has yet to be priced in either market.

The price was revealed in an email sent to select Club Nintendo members earlier today inviting them to get their hands on a New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition Bundle, a special edition bundle featuring a white New Nintendo 3DS along with exclusive Ambassador Edition cover plates, Super Smash Bros. cover plates and a charging cradle.

The Ambassador Edition Bundle will cost £179.99 in the UK, with Nintendo pricing the value of the console at £155.99, and the cover plates and cradle at £7.67 each.

Fans who choose to pick it up will receive the console ahead of its official European launch, with the offer available for a limited time and while stocks last. To grab one, you'll need to have been invited via email.

--UPDATE: Nintendo has confirmed to VideoGamer.com that the Ambassador Edition Bundle will be delivered within 7 working days of placing an order. Order it now and you could have it this week!--
