Amazon began selling various 3DS XL systems directly a couple of months ago. However, the situation may have reverted to the way things were originally.

At least for the time being, you can’t purchase any of the 3DS XL models straight through Amazon. You’ll have to make a purchase through another seller if you’re looking to buy a unit from the retailer’s site.

Nintendo and Amazon have maintained a noticeably strained relationship over the years. Cooperation between the two appeared to be improving after news spread regarding Amazon’s move to sell 3DS XL models directly, but may have soured yet again.
