Nintendo Confirms Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Nintendo 3DS XL Bundle for North America

I’ve been looking for an excuse to finally upgrade from the standard 3DS model to the 3DS XL.  So far I haven’t found a color o special edition worth the system transfer.  Well, it looks like I found the one.  This special edition gold Nintendo 3DS XL was announced by The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma.  The limited edition bundle will be released alongside The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, compatible with the Nintendo 3DS family of systems (including 2DS).  Watch the brief, to-the-point announcement video above, and stay tuned for more info. -Greg Boe

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds launches on November 22nd in North America.

North America is Getting the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y Limited Edition 3DS XLs

pokemon-x-y-special-editionIf you thought there were enough awesome things coming out in honor of Pokémon X and Pokémon YTHINK AGAIN.  That’s right readers, there’s more…  During today’s Pokémon themed Nintendo Direct Broadcast, 2 new 3DS XLs were announced. You can pick from both legendary Pokémon from the game, depending on your preference.  These new designs were already announced for Japan, but it’s fantastic to see a Western release as well.  I won’t be picking one up, since I already own a 3DS and have a red 2DS preordered, but it sure is tempting…

Unfortunately, these systems will not come with either game, so after shelling out $199.99, you’ll have to pay another $40 to get the game.  Stay tuned for more Nintendo 3DS news! -Greg Boe

Guess what? You can now purchase a refurbished 3DS XL straight from Nintendo, that’s what.

hardware_3dsxlNintendo recently started selling the standard 3DS on their online store.  You can pick one of these for as low as $119.99.  On top of this, the system remodel – Nintendo 3DS XL – has also joined the store with a starting price of $169.99.  For those unfamiliar with this new system, it boasts screens 90% larger than that of the original 3DS, and has an overall better hardware design.  If you were looking for another reason to get a 3DS, an authentic refurbished 3DS XL for this new low price should be reason enough.  I’m excited to see what else the big N has in store for us on their online store.

Stay tuned for more updates on the 3DS XL and its wonderful games! -Greg Boe

Black 3DS XL – Launching in North America on August 11th

1375188394-black-3ds-xlFor those who thought of the red, blue, and pink colors of the Nintendo 3DS XL were too juvenile, Nintendo has you covered.  On the same day that Mario & Luigi: Dream Team hits North America (August 11th), new 3DS owners will have another color to choose from.  I still don’t have a 3DS XL, and was waiting for a better system color, so I might actually get one now.

If you want your 3DS to look like a serious piece of tech instead of a toy, then you will love the black 3DS XL. -Greg Boe

Japan: Eevee Nintendo 3DS XL Confirmed

eevee3dsbigRemember when we told you about the new Pokémon themed 3DS XL on its way to Japan?  Well, it has been officially confirmed that it is indeed based on the much-loved Eevee.  You can check out what the new design will look like in the image above.  It is still unknown as to whether Nintendo plans on releasing this handheld outside of Japan, since even there, it will only be available via a special lottery.  This would be a fantastic system to release bundled with Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, alongside the Charizard design, which also hasn’t made it outside of Japan.

Eevee Pokémon-Themed 3DS XL Coming to Japan

pc-heroine-and-eeveeJapan has already seen a Pikachu and Charizard Nintendo 3DS LL (XL in other regions), and that’s not the end to the Pokémon themed handhelds either.  No sir!  There’s another one on its way, and rumors lead us to believe that it will feature Eevee.  Most of the suspicions are due to a poster spotted at the Pokémon Center in Japan, which pretty much says that an Eevee 3DS LL will be announced on May 15th.

We’ll keep you posted. -Greg Boe (admin)
