Super Smash Bros-themed Nintendo 3DS XL Likely Coming to North America
If you're going to play Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 3DS, you might as well should get a matching system with all your favorite fighters on its cover.
Polygon reports that Nintendo is likely to release two Super Smash Bros.-themed Nintendo 3DS XLs in North America. This information is based on a leaked Walmart ad that has been unconfirmed by both Walmart and Nintendo. Nintendo of America has said that it has nothing to confirm or announce when pressed with questions of this limited edition XL handheld, but they could always just surprise us.
The red Super Smash Bros. 3DS XL was announced by Nintendo of Europe last month and is set for a European release date of Oct. 3. It is expected to include a copy of Super Smash Bros. as well. Nintendo of Japan will be releasing a similarly styled handheld in November, but it will be the New Nintendo 3DS XL with the red designs featured in the picture above.
As you can tell by the Walmart circular provided below, the superstore is going to be selling both the red and blue versions of the Smash Bros.-themed 3DS XL handheld, each priced at $199.96.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launches on Oct. 3 with its Wii U counterpart launching this holiday season.
