Uhm to make more money.
3DS is pretty dominant in Japan.
They are updating it So it can be a little more capable, a bit more robust, slightly bigger screens, direct amiibo support, a c-stick + z triggers. If you watch the direct, you'll see new bundles will be offerred with Monster Hunter 4U and Smash Bros (which makes you think, yes that is why they added the c stick and extra buttons).
It will fragment the 3DS market a bit, but it is not THAT new of a thing. See Gameboy Advance, DSi.
