Nintendo 3DS XL | NES Edition | A Thing Of Beauty


Not the new, new 3DS XL, just a new 3DS XL bundle, and it’s gorgeous.

There’s a lot of love for retro gaming and consoles right now and Nintendo have drawn on their past as inspiration for one of two new 3DS XL bundles exclusive to GameStop in the US.

Harking back to the Nintendo Entertainment System the 3DS xL comes dressed in the classic colours with an NES controller design to boot. The packaging is equally pleasing with some nice detailing from the classic console. The second bundle is very different and a whole less remarkable taking it’s design cues from Atlus’ role-playing game Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Featuring Grimoire styling and character designs. Both designs are set to retail for $199.00 without a game. Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is due for release on November 25th.

The NES and Persona Q bundles will be available from October 10th only from GameStop USA.

Here in the UK there’s a little something worth checking out too with a limited edition Super Smash Bros 3DS XL with the game pre installed. Dressed in red the console features all the classic characters.

Super Smash Bros 3DS XL

The Super Smash Bros bundle retails for £199.97 and is available from October 3rd from GameStop UK pre-orders are being taken now.
