Amazon is now stocking Nintendo's 3DS XL. Why is this news? Well, for starters, Amazon didn't sell the handheld when it launched in August and continues not to have the regular 3DS directly available.

The curious situation between Amazon and Nintendo escalated from mere curiosity to something questionable when the world's largest e-tailer informed customers last week that "unfortunately the Wii U console is not available at Amazon.com at this time," while Best Buy and GameStop were more than happy to take pre-orders.

We've followed up with Amazon for a statement regarding the recent addition of the 3DS XL and if its plans have changed regarding the Wii U.
