Limited Edition Zelda and Luigi 3DS XL's announced for Europe

The Limited Edition The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL comes with download code for the game, too.

Nintendo will release two new 3DS XL models across Europe this November, the company has announced.

The first machine, which is themed around long-suffering sidekick Luigi, will be released on November 1 and will be available exclusively on the Nintendo store. The handheld console is coloured white, and dotted with silhouettes of Luigi in various shades of green.

On November 22, Nintendo will release a Limited Edition 3DS XL to tie-in to the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The machine sports a Triforce on the top and bottom of the console, with the top half coloured gold and the bottom in black. When opened, the machine mirrors the two Triforces seen in the game's logo.

Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds console also includes an eShop code for a copy of the game.

The company did not mention a RRP for either console.

Earlier today Nintendo announced that UK retailer Game would be offering a miniature Zelda treasure chest to customers preordering A Link Between Worlds.

that zelda one looks like shit! the anniversary edition looked great, but this looks like a shitty picture in a powerpoint presentation.

I'm willing to bet that 95% of those sold Luigi limited editions will be from people who weren't fast enough to get their hands on the Zelda version.

There was an early Black Friday flyer shown on the internet for Gamestop that showed the 3DS XL Zelda bundle for like $220.00.  Fingers crossed the ad is not a fake.

Special edition handhelds are so ugly, I'd rather have a sleek black one that this uncentralized triforce crap. I'll probably buy a 3DS by the end of the year for Pokemon.

As soon as the new Gateway 3DS Flash Cart updates it's patch for v5.0/6.0+ on 3DS, sales are going to shoot through the roof, just like the DS Lite

a shame.  alot of clutter and a bad investment every time new limited edition of the same hardware.  You would think they should concentrate more on a lack to luster console system.  But hey, it has Wind Waker HD. :\

One awesome hardware design by Nintendo. One step closer to that abominable transfer limit for many.

I can honestly say that, if this delicious sweetheart doesn't come to North America, I will go flip some pancakes and stuff Reggie with them!

YUMMM!!!

Maybe it's the lighting on it, but this one actually looks like a better "gold" colour than previous Nintendo offerings.

Didn't they use s similar design for the Zelda DS one? I swear my cousin has one just like it but the color might differ by a shade or two.

@soulless4now They both have a triforce and black/gold colour scheme but they look nothing like each other. Not to mention one is a 3DS XL and the other is the regular 3DS.

Nintendo need some kind of account system so we can transfer what we have brought over to a new 3DS or Wii U console. So we can keep what we have if our console breaks or you just want to upgrade to a new limited edition console or handheld  :(

@GH05T-666 you can transfer data between 3DS's there is an option in the ...options menu. I did it when I went from 3Ds to 3DS XL

GH05T-666

Awesome, I love the look of both of them!

I dont know what one to get :S

If it comes to the US I will be glad that I delayed getting a 3DS!  :)

Nintendo of America: YOU ARE FIRED! Seriously why does Japan even keep you here?

That chest and 3DS XL, I'd pay for at the drop of a 3ds. ><

@daihideo sadly NOA if very different than the japanese branch. Nintendo has a niche customer base(worldwide), and yet they don't really expand their niche ideas outside of Asia.

I wish Nintendo had some kind of account system in place. I hate having my stuff tied to the console. I already lost all my street passes when my system got a crack in the screen. I'd love to be able to trade up to a new limited edition set, but then I'd have to start all over again... again. 

*sigh*

Also that Tri-Force 3DS looks great. I love/hate you Nintendo!

@ZZoMBiE13 Yeah they are way behind in that respect, and in the services side overall.

i like the original Zelda 3DS more but for those who didnt get their hands on that one this is just as good. plus you get a bigger a screen

@superkadeemx I have the original black one as well. But I want that one too for my LoZ collection ^^

@daihideo @superkadeemx 

Same here but I want the 3DS XL because my current 3DS has cracks around the lower half (mainly around the hinges) as well as the D-pad chipping.

So how is that PRESKOOL 2DS selling?

@megakick 
Probably around 1m so far, you calling it "PRESKOOL" won't prevent it from selling.

Can we stop talking about the 3DS and discuss how awesome the guy in the picture looks?

@grbolivar what's worse? They're also getting a treasure chest(to hold your game cartridge), and ,when opened, the chime for obtaining an item comes on.

Looks like it's time to pick up a Zelda edition.

I was looking for a Pokemon XL but had a hard time finding a complete one that wasn't too expensive, but I guess the Zelda version will suffice...

I wish Nintendo would bring the limited edition Zelda to the US, it's what made me pick up a wii u and I would certainly pick up a 3DS-XL   I missed the Zelda limited edition 3ds for OOT

I hate that Nintendo is not region free.  I would import something like this.

Oh baby......looks like I've found my perfect 3DS XL. Damn, hopefully this comes to the US! (Hopefully, by then I'll have enough $$$ to obtain it, lol)

Probably the BESTEST ('yes', I meant to say it that way) 3DS XL color scheme/theme I've seen of all of them--and thank goodness they didn't have the inside of it done up in that bland-ass black finish (mind you I wish the buttons were gold, too but hey I can manage, lol).

@PumpkinBoogie The flat gold is nice, but I would love to see the shiny gold, similar to the Zelda NES game cartridge.  That would be sweet!
