Two new 3DS XL colors coming to Japan

New 3DS XL models feature colored buttons and lid.

Two new limited edition 3DS XL colors will be released in Japan on November 7.

The new Black + Orange and Black + Turquoise models feature a two-tone outer case, along with matching face and shoulder buttons, d-pad, wireless and volume sliders, and styluses.

Each model will each come with a Japanese AC adapter and a storage bag, with Nintendo pricing the machines at ¥19,900 yen each (approximately $204/£126).

In Europe, Nintendo also plans to release limited edition 3DS XL consoles themed around The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Luigi in November.

I'd already set my heart on the Zelda 3DS XL handheld for Black Friday. This is very nice i must say.

Another 'fuck you' to North America from Nintendo Japan.  Why do we still not even have white yet?!

Colin, it's not a point.. because it doesn't matter how much power it has if they don't use it to make any great games.. As of now, the 3DS has more quality games then the PS Vita ( at least in my opinion).

I already have a XL, but if that Turquoise one comes to the US, I will gladly throw my money at it!

Blayde, how is that not a point? The Vita would provide better gameplay than any 3DS game because of the better power.

It depends on your preference. I love psvita and some of the games on it but as of now psvita just doesn't have enough games. In the end what matters most is the number of quality games.

And yet in my opinion the Vita has many better games. Not much interests me on the 3DS. Person 4 Golden alone is better than any JRPG on 3DS.

OMG look at those button colors!  Times like this make me regret buying the system at launch...

So many great games on hand held. Even if you don't like the idea of playing them in public, they are great for traveling or for hanging out on the couch

^That's not even a point. Gameplay is always above graphics.

They're actually awesome! But I'm happy with my blue XY 3DS XL.

True, but the 3DS can't match the power and graphics of the Vita.

I'm not a fanboy but I think 3ds has a more quality game than the psvita right now. Soul Sacrifice can't even beat Monster Hunter in regards to the time you'll spend in the game.
