    With the upcoming release of Metroid: Samus Returns, it seems like the once-abandoned series is coming back into the spotlight, in the form of a limited edition New 3DS XL. It'll be hitting store shelves at "limited retailers" on September 15th.

    Red and gold, like the color, but the silhouette on samus, the red part is too hard to see. Hope the actual one looks better. :P

    Another casualty of the "upside down" special editions. Oh well. I will never begrudge the metroid community something cool.

    They just couldn't focus production on SNES classics and Switches, could they

    Nintendo switch could be painted like samus ship, and the dock could be the little elevator platform she goes on. It be so funny. :P

    Nintendo is perfectly capable of patting their head and rubbing their tummy -- at the same time!

    This won't have any affect on snes or switch production.

    Well, the factory producing those 3ds could have been used to produce switch to make it less rare

    So Ninty gonna keep making more versions of the 3DS forever now just because the current firmware can't be exploited? This would've made an awesome Switch instead, but NOOO...

    "Yeah lets shift tiny little specialty plant foxconn into switch-only mode. 100K new3ds's are too much of a burden for them"

    Switch/new3ds share zero parts anyway. They have no effect on one another.

    I am sure they share some caps and resisters.

    Nintendo is going to keep with the 3ds line till it stops selling, plus this is for Metroid fans and collectors, also they can do Metroid themed Joycons when Metroid Prime 4 comes around, this system is for Metroid 2 remake, they weren't going to make joycons for a game that's on the 3ds and not Switch, there saving that for Metroid Prime 4.


    Also you didn't really think Nintendo would stop the 3ds manufacturing, did you? It's still selling.
