Nintendo Introduces Three New Special Edition 3DS XL

The next three months see the release of three different Nintendo 3DS XL handhelds.

Nintendo 3DS XL Super Smash Bros. box

No New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL for you, North America and Europe. While Japan is getting the latest, c-stick featuring model of Nintendo’s handheld line, coming this fall and the holiday season to retailers are a trio of special edition 3DS XLs that have some lovely coats of paint. All three priced at $199.99 USD.

It all begins on September 19, when a Super Smash Bros. themed 3DS XL system (pictured above), available in either red or blue, will be released, perfectly timed for the inevitable North American launch of Nintendo’s all-star brawler on October 9. The hood of the system features the game’s large cast of popular gaming heroes and villains, like Mario, Link, and Pikachu.

Nintendo 3DS XL NES box

Then on October 10, Gamestop will be offering a NES Edition Nintendo 3DS XL that is exclusive to the largest retailer in the states for video games. This one-of-a-kind handheld is NES nostalgia on full blast, with the classic 8-bit console’s controller decked upon the cover and a box that looks like the system itself. How cute.

Nintendo 3DS XL Persona Q box

Lastly, for the Japanese role-playing game crowd, a dark purple 3DS XL prettied up in the style of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Publisher ATLUS will be dropping the upcoming 3DS-exclusive JRPG – a spin-off title in their popular Persona series that delivers some cutesy graphics, but hardcore gameplay – on November 25 to retailers everywhere.

It’s interesting to see Nintendo tempting folks into buying re-purposed hardware, while a brand new revision is about to launched (in Japan) and should eventually arrive in the U.S. But I guess if there’s one way to attract sales, these fancy-looking 3DS XLs might just do the trick.
