    lol Got the Fire Emblem 3DS at release. Already considering this one as well. If the Charizard 3DS XL miraculously gets announced before June 9th, then I probably will wait for that one instead…

    • $36598391

      if the charizard 3DS XL comes out I’m going to get it, if the bundles came with the cartridges of the games I’d have gotten the Fire Emblem XL

  • Kenneth Richardson

    What a cute console.

    I’d pick it up if I didn’t already have the normal 3DS. Well, then again, if they announce the SMT IV 3DS XL, then that might be a different story…

    • As someone who bought a launch 3DS I had zero interest in the 3DS XL. Then that Pikachu XL came along and I had to get it. I’m actually pretty happy I upgraded it’s so much more comfortable, games look better, longer battery and the bigger screen is awesome. It makes a gigantic difference in games like Kid Icarus before I would get a handcramp so bad, now I can play longer and the bigger touch screen makes aiming so much smoother and better.

      It’s actually not too bad in my pockets and I wear skinny jeans. If you can spare the cash it might be worth it for you. The only drawback is the speakers are a tiny bit quieter.

    Thank you, Nintendo! It’s exactly what I wanted~

  • AuraGuyChris

    How did I find myself saying that this machine is cute?

  • AweOfShe

    Looks like I’m getting another XL, haha

    I actually was really considering the Animal Crossing 3DS LL(Pink x White, too), it’s really cute! Ultimately, I went with a White model. I prefer more neutral colors.

    I remember reading in the comments here how people hoped that the bundle would reach overseas when it was first announced for Japan. I’m glad it did! I’m always happy to see when things work out!

    hmmm it looks like some kind of underwear pattern….

  • puchinri

    yesYesYES! This is so perfect! If we had a XL, my boyfriend and I could switch off the handhelds, and if we get this and a physical copy, we could both have our own towns and play together as mayors~!

    Of course, I’m getting a copy either way and really excited for the game, but I am so glad that we’re getting the bundle. ♥♥♥

  • Xmas Lopez

    INSTANT BUY. Where can I get it?!

  • Looks like I’ll have…2 3DS…aha…haa *moth flies away from wallet*

  • rurin

    It’s so adorable and I wanted it but…
    I already spent on the Pikachu :'(

  • I would love to get this but…. I already own a 3DS and a 3DS XL, plus, the games come pre-installed and I prefer physical copies :/

  • Mmm I will try to get this just because we don’t have XL here. The regular 3DS screen is too small for me and it’s uncomfortable to look at with games that are in 3D (models etc).
