    This beauty has been revealed to the YouTubers invited by NOA to San Fransisco to play the beginning of Metroid: Samus Returns, releasing later this year.

    Ugh, Nintendo has a knack for tempting me with something brand new when I have plans for another thing. In this case, wanting a New 2DS XL but then this drops, and I doubt I can get both in a short span of time.

    If I didn't already own a New 3DS XL I would be all over this.

    I would strongly recommend you to get this, as it is a limited edition and is going to become like the Majora's one in the near future. It costs $200, and you have obviously the same features as the N2DSXL plus better camera placement and head-tracking 3D. I guess that now 95% of GBATemp shits on those two feature, especially the 3D, but the limited ediotion is still beautiful.

    Oof. I just ordered a new 2ds xl today. Kind of tempted to cancel and wait for this thing.

    It's all about options.
    I love the fact that there are many options. Remember the Wii U? There were only two console types...and obviously I know it's because it's a failed console, but it makes me appreciate consoles that sell well. It affords them the opportunity to issue many different special editions or customized versions of consoles. Personally, I don't usually buy them because I think a primary console has more universal appeal for resale probability.

    It won't be long until this shell is on Alibaba for sale (just like the Zelda ones).

    If you're ok with a screw driver and aren't clumsy - just get a secondhand N3DS XL and swap the shells!

    Bleck. Not a fan of the colour, but I can see resellers going crazy for this.
