Video game console maker Nintendo revealed that it will be launching a new limited edition line of its Nintendo 3DS XL handheld console before Christmas – a limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL White and a limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow.
“For any Mario lover, the two Nintendo 3DS XL White consoles will be at the top of your Christmas wishlist. Whether you prefer traditional platforming action or fast-paced, arcade-style racing, the choice is yours, as you can pick from either having Mario Kart 7 or Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed on your system,” Nintendo said in a statement.
The limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL White will come pre-installed with Mario Kart 7, and will be available in stores from 16 November onwards, while another limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL White will come pre-installed with Super Mario 3D Land, and will be available in stores from 30 November.
“The colourful offerings don’t stop there as from 7th December onwards Pokémon fans can also get their hands on a special limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL in yellow which features an image of Pikachu on the system,” Nintendo concluded.
