Looking to buy a new 3DS XL? Well, now you have three new choices to choose from, including a nifty Smash Bros. system that leaked.
Nintendo has finally confirmed that the Smash Bros.-designed 3DS XL system will indeed make its way to retailers on September 19th, for the price of $199.99. Even though the game will be sold separately, players will be able to get their Smash on with the custom-designed system, featuring various characters on the front cover.
Perhaps you're in the mood for something a little more nostalgic? Nintendo has also confirmed a special NES Edition of the 3DS XL, which will be available on October 10th. The system will sell for $199.99, and features a hardware design similar to that of an iconic NES controller. Nice!
Finally, if you prefer to be a little quirkier, Atlus' Persona Q will get its own special Nintendo 3DS XL system on November 25th, launching alongside the publisher's Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth game. The system will sell for $199.99, and will not come with a copy of the game.
“More than 12 million systems in the Nintendo 3DS family have been sold in the U.S. alone,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “These new models give shoppers even more choices during the holiday shopping season. Based on past experience, these special editions likely won’t stay on shelves for very long.”
It's looking like the systems may be exclusively sold through Gamestop, although Nintendo hasn't confirmed this just yet. It wouldn't hurt to get a pre-order in, just in case. Remember the Zelda 3DS XL? Yep.
