    iQue are releasing exclusive Mario-themed 3DS XLs in three different flavors. They will come pre-installed with Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. There is no word on a suggested retail price, yet. Click the source for more details and close-up images of each design.

    Thanks to mtpeaceful for the tip!


    So Japan gets two Pokemon-themed 3DS XLs [1, 2], and an Animal Crossing one, while China gets three Mario-themed ones. I wonder if we'll get any love out in the West?

    *EDIT*
    Apparently the [p] tag doesn't work on XenForo.

    The Charizard one is lottery-allocated so it's super limited. But yea I suppose you could count it in still.

    And IIRC Europe is getting the Pikachu one as well.

    Mario Red Gold is the most enticing to me.

    Doesn't seem like a big deal really I mean a crystal case and some paint and you can have a really unique 3DS that looks a whole lot better than that.

    LOL Maybe since the 3DS is still uncrackable so they want to get them to commit while they still can? :P I dunno.

    Metroid or Megaman would be my picks. That Charizard one is pretty cool too.

    Well at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'd really like an Ace Attorney and or PLvsAA one.

    And a Monster Hunter one would be awesome too. Just like the white and red one for the regular 3DS.

    Or like the Fire Emblem one.

    I retract my statement, it's not as hard as I thought to pirate hardware. Anyone have the torrent file to 3d print a coke?

    I want the Charizard one so much. I hope they do draws in North America as well. Even if I could get entered in the Japanese draw, that'd be cool.

    All I see is an easy way to pirate the outer shell, and other plastic parts of the 3DS. I assume what he meant by hardware is the actual internal electronics.
