    looking through target website for fun and I see this abomination of a new 3ds... Why did nintendo it, sure it has a cool inside color, but GALAXY?! WHY! I'm sorry just wanted to show this to people, even though this is probably really late news -.-

    I have a hunch this was originally intended to market Metroid: fed force (spacey theme!), but since the game didn't do well, they just dumped it out as a limited edition system color.

    People who have it say it looks better in person.

    Not only that, they didn't even have the decency to port super Mario galaxy to 3DS

    What we really need is an Eevee n3DSXL. I'd buy three.

    It looks better in person. Nintendo also used sparkly plastic on some bits of the Galaxy 3DS XL.

    The weird thing is that i'm unable to find the small N3DS. On Amazon only appears the XL one.

    My only complain is that the the front of the 3DS is blue instead of purple :/

    What Amazon region do you shop from? It may vary.

    It looks kind of appealing imo.
    I'd buy it if I were in the market for a n3DSXL.

    You're not "stuck" with the design you buy on the small n3DS; the Mario 3D Land design is on cover plates (back and front) that can be swapped. You can buy cover plates on ebay or Amazon or from Japanese importers. Otherwise, it's just a small n3DS with a game pre-installed.
