Nintendo Reveals White and Yellow 3DS XL

Pikachu has never looked better than on a 3DS XL

Nintendo announced in a press release Monday the arrival of a few new limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL consoles arriving this holiday season. There will be three different units available to purchase. Unfortunately, all three new versions of the 3DS XL will only be available in the UK and are of a strictly limited quantity.

Mario fans will have two different consoles to choose from based on their personal preferences. While both units will be identical in their limited white exterior, each will have a different Mario game pre-loaded inside. Fans of the racing genre will be able to pick up the Mario Kart 7 White 3DS XL. If it isn’t obvious from the name, it will come with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed on the system upon purchase. This version will be available Nov. 16 for £199.99.

Fans of Mario’s original-style games can instead go for the Super Mario Land White 3DS XL. As mentioned before, both consoles are physically the same in every way, with the exception of the game that comes pre-loaded on it. Super Mario 3D Land is included in this deal. It is set to release on Nov. 30 for £199.99.

The black sheep (or yellow as it would be) of the group is the new Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL. Built with the Pokemon fan in mind, the Pikachu 3DS XL will feature a unique yellow exterior with an image of everyone’s favorite pokemon on the front. This version of the system is unique only in its physical appearance and will not feature any pre-loaded games. The Pikachu 3DS XL will be available Dec. 7 for £199.99.

They are sure to disappear quickly but fans can pre-order the consoles now via the GAME official website to ensure they get their hands on the limited edition 3DS XL.

Nintendo’s 3DS XL made its debut in the UK last July with much larger screens (top: 4.88”, bottom: 4.18”) as well as the ability to reflect less light from nearby light sources, resulting in a pretty substantial decrease in the kind of glare that keeps gamers from enjoying some fresh air.
