Nintendo has announced not one but two brand new 3DS XL editions to be released next month in Europe. The first to be revealed is a special Legend of Zelda 3DS XL to coincide with the release of A Link Between Worlds on November 22. This gorgeous edition features a golden top cover, a golden interior, and black back, plus when the console is opened fully, you’ll find both the light and dark world triforce logos. Like others in the past, the 3DS XL model will come with a download copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. However, if you’re looking for the physical boxed version, Nintendo has confirmed that they will be releasing retail copies with a reversible front cover, one side in gold, the other in full colour.
But since it’s the Year of Luigi, Nintendo of Europe believes we should celebrate his return to the spotlight with the special Luigi 3DS XL edition. No longer a Japan exclusive edition, European fans can purchase the limited edition via Nintendo’s new online store only. The Luigi 3DS XL will release on November 1, exclusively for the Nintendo store, which you can visit here. For those of you in North America, we’ll keep you updated if we spot any new releases.
