    After the news of the blue and black Wii bundles in Europe and America you might have been thinking that Japanese gamers have been left in the dark but fret not as in fact, they've come out with the best deal. Japan has been treated to two special edition 3DS units. The first is a special edition Monster Hunter 3DS.



    This new white 3DS has the red Monster Hunter Tri 3G artwork and comes bundled with the game. There are currently two bundles for the game, this special edition 3DS and the Slider Pad bundle. The game can be bought separately too.

    The most recent special edition 3DS was announced today. This SD Gundam G Generation 3DS is set to be released alongside the game when it comes out in Japan on the 22nd December.



    It's time to calm down though as it is most likely that neither of these special edition 3DS' will be making their way to Western shores.

    The MH one looks awesome. Too bad we'll never get it. Stupid Region Lock getting in the way again.

    Those do look nice indeed. Necron's idea is still valid, you can say you have a 3DS from your region in a color that was never released in your region.

    I'm not tempted in the least bit though.

    Japan only D: ? Does that mean that this is not getting localized or so?

    Well, I must admit, it's so awesome looking indeed. Wonder how much it's gonna cost.

    i really hate the fact that the 3ds is region locked, if it wasn't i would be all over that monster hunter 3ds, it looks very nice.

    For those who want to import should because you are missing out on good JP only 3DS games.

    If I ever need a japanese 3DS, I might as well import this beauty.

    But what's the point? Eh. I'll just wait for a limited edition 3DS Lite.

    MH isn't nearly as popular here. It makes sense to sell it in Japan as one of the most popular franchises ever there. Here? It would make more sense to market a CoD 3DS or something.

    It looks like the Gundam 3DS is so far the only limited edition 3DS to come with it's own paint job (is that Char Zaku pink/maroon?). The MH3G one looks good, but it's just an Ice White with decals. And that Heroes of Ruin is just Cosmo Black with decals. Can't remember the Love Plus editions though.
