Today is the first day of gamescom 2017, and Nintendo made several announcements. Most of them are about the Nintendo Switch, but there’s also a little bit of love for the Nintendo 3DS!
For starters, it was announced that a special New Nintendo 3DS XL model would be released on October 13th. It’s called New Nintendo 3DS XL – Super Nintendo Entertainment System Edition, and it seems to be pretty much idententical to the New Nintendo 3DS LL Super Famicom Edition released last year in Japan.
This new model of New Nintendo 3DS XL is only announced for Europe so far, but it’s likely North America will also get it (maybe even on the same day). We should get an announcement for that region in the upcoming days!
Here’s a picture of the packagaging:
But that’s not all: Nintendo also announced that on the same day (October 13th), three more games would be added to the Nintendo Selects range in Europe (price: $15.99 / 19.99€):
- Kirby Triple Deluxe
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Luigi’s Mansion 2
Those three games are among the best first-party titles on Nintendo 3DS, so we can but recommend you check them out if you haven’t played them already!
Here’s what their Nintendo Selects cover look like:
