The systems will be the newest members of the Nintendo 3DS family, the sales of which in Japan alone are estimated to already top 16 million units to date.
The new C-Stick, ZL button and ZR button, which will enhance the play controls of the existing Nintendo 3DS hardware, have been added, and the new “Super-Stable 3D” function will provide players with an even more comfortable 3D gaming experience. Furthermore, the new “NFC feature” will enable the use of the “amiibo™” on Nintendo 3DS.
As for “New Nintendo 3DS,” the LCD screens are bigger than those of the existing Nintendo 3DS, and the exterior design of the hardware can be customized simply by exchanging the “Cover Plates,” which will be sold separately.
As for the overseas markets, our local subsidiaries will separately confirm. However, there will be no U.S. and European launches this calendar year."

The hardware (CPU, etc.) will also be more powerful, even though it doesn't mention that. Also, the "Super-Stable 3D" will increase the viewing angle of the 3D as of now. The internet browser will also support HTML5 and have a "filter" for a "children mode" already in place and have to be removed by linking a credit card with a fee of $0.29. The camera will also be better in low light situations.

Update: Micro SD cards will be supported. Will also be able to backup data on a PC over Wifi and as of right now the OS will need to be Windows 7 and 8.
