All black Nintendo 3DS XL coming in August
Nintendo confirmed rumors Tuesday of a new color for the Nintendo 3DS XL with the reveal of an all black edition of the handheld.
The all black Nintendo 3DS XL will join the current blue / black, red / black and pink / white range of options on Aug. 11 alongside Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.
Purchasing the new black 3DS XL will cost the same as before, $199.99 and Nintendo did not announce any other new additions to the existing package.
This roll out of new colors for handhelds is nothing new for Nintendo as it regularly releases new colors and special editions every year to boost sales. The special editions have mostly been limited to the Nintendo 3DS though an Animal Crossing 3DS XL was released in June for $219.99 with a copy of the game. Unfortunately, most of these custom handhelds have been released in Japan and not in North America.
