  1. Want, want, WANT!! Oh Nintendo please bring this here to north america, and for sale too not some scaming contest. Im so anti 3DS XL since I love my Zelda anniversary 3DS but id buy this instantly!




        1. Well the pikachu one was announced for Japan first and then a short while later it was brought to europe. North america still doesent have any word about the pikachu one though.

          1. They Will keep releasing these wacky 3ds’ over the years so everyone trades in and buys new ones and they keep making more money and selling more units :/ . America and EU will end up with a whole bunch of em ..

      1. I have or have added all codes above me. If I’m not added to your friendlist in 24hrs, I do a cleanse to keep my list clear.

        I already have over half of you fine folks on my list already though, so no scales off my shell.

      1. @gamelall i don’t see ur FC anywhere above,
        @DR3w248 i don’t see you appearing on my friends list despite the fact i added your friend code by what you posted in your previous above comment.

      1. Not really, yes its the same hardware, the difference is that people who don’t know will assume that this LL is infact the XL and hold off on getting a 3DS XL because they will want to get this LL

        When infact it hasn’t been announced for westwrn terertirries.

        1. I tried to find sense in your post and couldn’t.
          The 3DS LL and the 3DS XL are exactly the same product, they simply have different names. Just like how Animal Crossing for 3DS is subtitled New Leaf for America and Jump Out for Japan. Same product, different name.

          1. Say you’re an american wanting to get a 3DS, (you’re on a trip in japan) and you’re find this amazing Charizard edition 3DS, you get it and when you get home you get yourself a brand new game, but you come to find out that it wont play because you have a region locked 3DS LL.

            Do you see what I mean now. I understand its the same hardware, but its not the same.

            See, people are stupid, if they confuse the wiiU with the wii, I’m sure as hell they’ll confuse these Two because not a lot of people know about region locking.

      1. No its not. It just makes this special edition actually special. I hope they do est more of these for the future. Then most fans will see they’re systems more special and personal

        1. It’s bullshit because you don’t win them. You win the chance to buy them. That’s just stupid, it doesn’t make them special at all.

  2. Another 3dsxl that we probably wont get….. Damn nintendo stop being so stingy with the colors for the NA…

    Still waiting for a good color to come out before buying a 3dsxl because I dont like the 2 current colors…. Still wanting that all white 3dsxl!!

    Please give us more colors!

  3. It’s crazy how I crossed Charizard bridge for the first time in white 2 right before I found out about this 3ds. ( the game is so freaking good)

    1. My dad bought me the limited edition Venusaur GBA SP when he went there when it was still the Pokemon Centre :)

      But then i cracked the screen :(

        1. If I knew it was vaguely valuable, I would have taken better care of it instead of letting it loose in my school bag without a case… Curse my 11 year old ignorance…

          I still have a limited edition Pikachu and Pichu GBA which I think was to celebrate the release of Crystal, and it still works 100% fine apart from not having a battery cover. That was my first ever game console :)

  4. Damn that’s a great looking 3DS XL right there, I’d trade in my launch 3DS for an XL, considering they let me transfer all my Ambassador games and stuff. That and my Circle Pad broke.

    1. Ambasidor games and status DO transfer!
      <– Tried and tested. ;-)
      I painted my 3DS XL. It worked pretty good, but it's hard to get the edges… My paint wore off around the edges… I need to hit it with another coat.

      1. Nice, but I was talking about the store letting me transfer my data, but still good to know you can transfer all your stuff to another 3DS. And cool, customization is always nice, and the paint from my 3DS is chipping off too, so looks like I need to trade it in soon.

          1. Gamestop doesn’t allow you to transfer data cause they don’t give wifi access to transfer from one 3DS to another. Maybe Best Buy let’s you, seeing they have Nintendo Zone access.

            1. Well, my GameStop is next to a Starbucks that has wi-fi, so if anything I probably would be able to do it :) You can always go to a GameStop in a mall too, Simon malls have Nintendo Zone.

              1. Nice wish my GS was next to a Starbucks. Gonna check if my mall’s GS have wifi access. And thanks for the help Jaded and Mike :)

        1. I’ll try to get a pic out to you this weekend. I painted it gloss-black. Looks good, but I need to touch it up and it takes forever to tape and protect all the moving parts & screens!

  5. This is the only 3DS XL I would buy. I hate the differing color schemes of all of them and I don’t like the color white on the system. This is black and attractive. I would actually want it from Japan too that way I could play unlocalized games and view japanese nintendo video and such.

  6. Come ON NOA, Europe and Japan already got a slew of new colours, BRING SOME HERE because then I’ll finally upgrade to an XL.

    1. Lol, I got the aqua blue 3DS because I grew tired of having base colors for my portable systems past the gba sp. (ds was silver, ds lite was white then got another one that was black) I kinda wish they had one that was an orange color, or green.

  7. The flame on the back is pretty pointless, i mean when i open it, people will just see an upside down Charizard…

  8. Nintendo Admits Poor 3DS Sales Outside Of Japan, Slashes Forecast By 70%

    Nintendo has conceded that the Nintendo 3DS has failed to sell as many units as it had hoped outside of Japan and has subsequently slashed its profit forecasts by 70 per cent. Nintendo also announced an operating loss of ¥27,996, though this is an improvement on the ¥70,272m loss reported the year before.

    THIS IS WHY! Give us all this awesome stuff Japan gets and 3DS will take over the world!!!
