The new 3DS might be releasing sooner than we thought.

The image, which you can check out above, seems to be an official GameStop promotional poster, according to Kotaku. However, Nintendo has not yet given any official comment on the matter.

The first Nintendo Direct of 2015 has been scheduled for tomorrow morning and if this rumor turns out to be true, it is highly likely that the company will announce the release date of this handheld then. We’ll keep you updated as more information comes our way.
