My goodness, ANOTHER special edition 3DS on the way, Yoshi style


Another reason for those who haven’t already jumped on the Nintendo 3DS bandwagon to do so has been revealed here in North America in the form of a Yoshi-themed Nintendo 3DS XL system. Launching alongside Yoshi’s New Island on March 14, the system sports a light green hue with Yoshi on the front and “a series of cute Yoshi eggs on the back.” Oddly, the new model will not come bundled with the game from which its inspiration comes, or any game for that matter, but it looks like a nice piece of hardware nonetheless.

With more 3DS owners than Wii U owners out there, I expect anyone who’s reading this already owns a Nintendo 3DS and is happy with it. But it can’t hurt to ask: does anyone have any interest in the latest special edition Nintendo 3DS XL? Let us know in the comments below.

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. Well, if my 3DS ever goes out on me, I will pick this up for sure :).

  2. I don’t have a particular interest in Yoshi, so I’ll probably go with the solid black XL if my red/black one ever kicks the bucket (not that I expect it to before the arrival of Nintendo’s next handheld generation).

  3. No, I have a white 3DS XL because all the other colors are distracting me while playing. I do like Yoshi however and I’m pretty sure Yoshi likes me too.

  4. of course… I don’t mind different models but if it’s just a paint job unless this is going to be your next 3DS to XL then that’s your call.

  5. Buying one for my wife: she is a MAJOR Yoshi fan. Then, I’m going to take her blue Pokemon XY 3DS XL, put my Pikachu 3DS XL aside until I can try and get the top screen (with the usual parallel scratch lines) replaced.

  6. It doesn’t come with the game? That’s really weird.

  7. That seems to be the case. I agree, it is weird.

  8. I also find how Holly has two different avatars quite weird.

  9. That is weird. I honestly have no idea what causes it! Probably depends on which device I use, my computer or my tablet. Both are me, though, I assure you!

  10. Oh, I didn’t even suspect an impostor — truth is, I’m just curious about how the site works and recognizes these things. =P
