Nintendo today officially announced a new Zelda-themed 3DS XL for North America, after a leaked GameStop Black Friday advertisement first revealed the bundle earlier this month.

The special 3DS XL will be released on November 22 alongside The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. It features gold and black coloring and the Triforce logo on its exterior.

The 3DS XL bundle will sell for $220, including the system and a digital copy of the game. 3DS XLs currently sell for $200, while The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will go for $40, meaning players will save $20 through the bundle. The special 3DS XL bundle will also be available in Europe.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is predominantly presented from a top-down perspective, with Link able to transform into a drawing and move across walls. This mechanic will play a major role in the game, Nintendo has said.
