It may be old news to many of you, but if you really want a New 3DS XL in blue like in Europe and Japan, but you're in North America, you can now get one without case-swapping. The blue New 3DS XL was released in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Malaysia. They are the same region as North American for region-locking purposes, and you can just select United States, Mexico, etc. on system config as normal. You can find such systems for sale on places like eBay.
