Nintendo finally got around to officially confirming the gold and black Nintendo 3DS XL A Link Between Worlds bundle that was announced for Europe earlier this month. The confirmation came in grand style, with series producer Eiji Aonuma appearing on video to make the confirmation himself.

You can watch the video above to see the official confirmation and then be sure to check out our gallery below of official images, so you can see what the new Nintendo 3DS XL will look like both inside and out. Will you be picking up one of these when it launches on November 22nd?

Let us know in the comments!

    Already have my special edition Pokemon XL. Might have to buy this one too, for the collector value of it! Give it a few years, and this thing will worth a ton of money.

    • Nintendo is killing it with special edition 3DSes lately.

      • Ducked

        To bad we didn’t get a year of Luigi 3DS 🙁

  • Sdudyoy

    Man I wish I could afford this, I want the game more than any other game coming out and I don’t have a 3DS.

    • Ducked

      It’s a shame Nintendo doesn’t give us a few months notice of a limited edition bundle so we could save up our money for it.

  • alex toschi

    I really want this, I hope it’s still on the shelves for some time. I just finally picked up the Wii U with that New Super Mario Bros. U + Luigi U Bundle so I’m a bit strapped for cash for the month of November.

  • Dan

    Pre-Ordered and done! I’m not wasting any time on this baby. If the Pikachu XL is any indication they’re gonna go lightening fast! Guess I’m gonna have a Blue 3DS XL for sale in about a month. Hope the big N lets me transfer Ambassador twice in one year!

    • Lord Tywin

      Where did you preorder it from?

      • Dan

        Gamestop.com has it available right now. I called my local store first and they said they won’t be offering them in store until tomorrow, if ever, depending on how many go today.

        • Lord Tywin

          Thank you! I just preordered it. The high cost of shipping will be worth it I think.

          • Dan

            Agreed! As much as it pained me to do it, I opted to spend $5 extra for 2 day shipping so I hopefully get it before Thanksgiving. But in the end, paying $12 shipping is much better than paying the $100+ markup I’m sure these will have on eBay and Amazon come December!

          • Lord Tywin

            I opted for 2-day shipping as well! You’re right. I think resellers will have a field day with this 3DS XL bundle. I saw people buying the Ganondorf Wind Waker bundle for over $100 on eBay.

    This is the most beautiful gaming machine known to man.

  • Justagamer

    I already have mine paid off and can’t wait for it…The best in zelda is coming Nov 22

  • YayGs

    Time to head to GameStop.
    I miss Funcoland though…

    • Pikachief

      Man Funcoland. I’ve only ever seen one Funcoland and it closed after the 1st time I ever went. I did bought Super Mario RPG for $1 when I was there though! I really wanted to go back and buy more rare / classic Super Nintendo games but it was closed 🙁

  • Jon

    going to pre0-order mine tomorrow 🙂

  • Nathan DeFalco

    FINALLY! Now the question remains: Who to pre-order it from? I’ve only ever pre-ordered from Gamestop. What other retailers do pre-orders?

    • Makakilo_Man

      I wanna know the same thing. Is there anyone else than Gamestop?

  • Mr. Berzerk

    I’ve been wanting a 3ds xl. THIS will be the one I get. A question for someone who has bought one of these bundles. Are the games digital copies, or hard copies? Can I get this in Canada, cause gamestop says no….

    • Jason Lavel

      Can anyone answer this? I would like to know as well. In the bundles, do you get the game on disc/card, or as a download code?

  • SleepySkullhead


  • It’s great to know that there are supporters for this game bundle.

  • Ducked

    Love the texture! But I’ll be selling my Pikachu 3DS XL to get a good amount of money. I prefer playing on regular 3DS.

  • Brentt

    Yes Know I can buy an 3DS Xl even though I owned the original at Launch the circle pad fells off cause of serious play time aka Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 400+ hours I love that game lol

  • I really want something like this as a sticker for my current 3DS. That looks like such a cool two-tone design.
