    Left out the fact it is a N3DS XL in the title, my bad.

    Has anyone seen it yet? Not gonna lie, really love the color scheme and art on it.

    Comes out February 19th but doesn't come with a copy of the game.

    Still awesome nonetheless.

    Just typical Nintendo gimmicks I guess. I'm sure this is just for late adopters on the New 3DS train. I'm sure you'll be able to order "replacement" covers and use it on your New 3DS XL you own already as you please.

    Well, unless stock is super limited... then I have no clue.

    I wonder if Gamestop is taking pre-orders yet.

    Meh, I like my Fire Emblem Awakening O3DS better than this... it was classy as hell.

    It definitely nothing phenomenal or ground breaking but it looks good nonetheless. Not good enough to warrant another purchase of a 3DS again.

    You could always find out tomorrow? I'm not 100% sure on any of the details other than its $200, no charger and no game. Basically just something for collectors or new adopters to the N3DS.

    Maybe if it came with the three games and console, it would be worth it, but as just the console... nah. At least the FE:A bundle came with the game.

    Well, if it came with the three games it'd be great but it definitely wouldn't cost $200 at that point. I'm not sure why they didn't at least put one of them on the handheld itself but who knows, it's Nintendo.

    Wheere did you find this? I've wanted to buy a 3ds for a couple of weeks now but wanted to wait if they would release some limited edition with fire emblem.

    Also, do you know if this one will come to EU?

    As of now, it isn't confirmed for EU or if it is? There isn't a release date. I found it on the Nintendo of America's twitter page.

    I personally bought the N3DS XL Pokemon 20th anniversary edition. I couldn't resist...

    That one comes with a lot more value than this one. Two games, two covers and a theme. I personally want it but just can't afford it.

    Yeah, price point makes it pretty meh because it comes with nothing other than the system itself.
