    The Animal Crossing 3DS is really cute and my favorite of the three.

    • It is very cute and I don’t care for the Mario one and the MH3 one is bland so yah I agree it is my favorite.

    • Niermyico

       I think I would totally go for the Animal Crossing one too.

  • Aoshi00

    Pretty good price w/ the digital game.  The Mario design is nice.. the old DSi XL only had one flower/mushroom/star at the corner.. really wish I had waited for the XL LE to import a Jpn 3DS.. I would be really tempted if they were to do a Gyakuten Saiban 5 XL LE :)

  • Izzy Miyake

    Alright NoA, all you need to do is release a sexy LE 3DS XL HERE IN NORTH AMERICA and I’ll just give you my credit card.

    Just like that.

    All this in Japan and NA still only has red/black & blue/black 3DS XLs. I just want a solid matte black 3DS XL. I’ll wait for the eventual US release of more colors (hopefully).

    That Animal Crossing 3DS is adorable <3 I'd love to get my hands on one…

  • SirRichard

    That Animal Crossing one is gorgeous, and that Mario one isn’t too bad either. That Zelda 3DS was pretty cool, Nintendo, maybe you could consider another special thing for us?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Animal Crossing 3DS XL there makes me wanted to get another 3DS system here.T_T

    ……..T_T Why don’t i have unlimited money here.T_T

  • Ricewarrior

    Animal Crossing theme?

    First thing that came to my mind looking at that was a Strawberry Poptart.

  • Monsley

    I’m not even an Animal Crossing fan, but that 3DS is so cute that I might finally buy one if that comes to Europe. (The Mario one is very nice, too!)

  • this constant repeating pattern on the case looks really really ugly

  • The Mario and Animal Crossing designs are pretty nice, but why is the Monster Hunter bundle just a plain black 3DS without anything like a special print on it? Is it because plain black is such a highly sought after color and they’re trying to boost the Monster Hunter popularity with it by getting those people buy that bundle who were not or at least only mildly interested in the series before? Considering Monster Hunter’s popularity in Japan, that would probably be a moot strategy anyway. But if they released that bundle in the West, maybe…!
