    I think it looks awful, sorry :/ The original (slim) 3DS is much better looking imo.

    Hey, Ninty. Why can’t you offer the standard white and black in the U.S.?

    • FaithlessMr

      @Sal Romano:
      I was wondering that as well, lol. I mean, what gives?

    • anime10121

      @Sal Romano: Because they’ll offer it later and expect the people that want it to go out and purchase a new 3DS XL. This is how Nintendo is run, offer you part of what you want now and release what you REALLY want later.

    Looks fine to me, not sure what the hubbub is about. It’s just bigger lol. Looks nice.

    I asked this in the other 3DS XL thread but it might have gotten buried. But does anyone know if the Purple 3DS is a limited edition color or will it be available forever or at least for a while?

    • Rock Raiyu

      @FearMonkey: Pretty sure purple is a new standard color and not a LE.

    • weyou

      Probably forever. I didn’t hear they said it’s limited.

  • NCloud

    I like it :)

    I like the title of this post. xD I really want a white one, but importing it would be expensive. But I dunno, I plan on importing a lot of games, so why not? Money ugh.

  • hush404

    Ha, this announcement actually reminded me that I had my eye on a DSi XL for a while now. Might have to get one soon.

  • Red-X

    Only if Ninty put Right-analog……..

  • gangrelion

  • Adam Meadows
