Nintendo of America are releasing the pink and white Nintendo 3DS XL again for Valentine’s Day, they’ve revealed over Facebook and Twitter. The colour will be made available for purchase this week:



Update: Nintendo released a pink-and-white 3DS XL late last year in limited quantities, which was sold out. This appears to be the same colour scheme.

    …And how is this different from the one at Christmas?
    I would have preferred Pikachu, or just a plain yellow and black one. So awesome @[email protected]

    • Ah, we’d missed that they’d already released this once before as a limited edition. Updated, thanks. :)

      I don’t mind that they are releasing this again, but I agree with you. Pikachu LE, all Yellow or all Black… or a combination of the two would be great.

      • MrRobbyM

        Black base and yellow cover o_o

    I’m still waiting for the Cosmo Black 3DS XL that Japan has had since the XL was announced.

  • I saw this headline and excitedly misunderstood it as “Pink 3DS XL” and “White 3DS XL” in U.S.

    Disappointed :(

    • MrRobbyM

      I don’t really like these two-tone 3DS either. All white and all pink would be nice.

    • Kai2591

      Same here man *sigh*..

  • This is the manliest portable device I’ve ever seen. I would buy one without hesitation were it region-free.

    I’m guessing this is a limited release as well?

    • fds_nextdart

      Yes, from what I understand it’s because of V-Day, so I’d guess the amounts of systems produced are more than limited and will soon pop up on Ebay going for $500+~.

  • puchinri

    YES! Kind of. . . I really want the FE 3DS first, but I wanted this color scheme for a while. But then again, if I get the FE 3DS, I don’t get the cute cartridge art.
    Pink it is!

  • Ricardo C

    Well thats nice now how about a Cosmo Black 3DS for NA Nintendo?

  • Hours

    I really wish I could swap my Blue 3DS for this one. I love it so much.

  • CirnoLakes

    I already have one of these. And I wasn’t aware they weren’t in stores. I could have swore I saw them at my local places.

    That being said, this is my favourite colour combination.
