Four New Limited Edition 3DS XLs Coming to North America

September 10th, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized


It’s sort of a lame duck period for the 3DS right now. With the announcement of the New 3DS, Nintendo has made it so there isn’t much of a reason to pick up a current 3DS/3DS XL.

Regardless, the company announced four new limited edition 3DS XLs that will launch in North America over the course of the next few months.

The first are a pair of red and blue Super Smash Bros. for 3DS-themed 3DS XLs are coming to stores later this month on September 19. It will not be bundled with a copy the game.

After that, on October 10, a NES-styled 3DS XL will launch exclusively at GameStop.

Also coming exclusively to GameStop is the Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth 3DS XL. It will come out on November 25. Like the Super Smash Bros. XL, it will not come with a copy of the game.
