  • It’s a shame they don’t do the black border around the upper screen….

    • Edzo04

      i think it looks better without it

    • Brandonmkii

      I thought that was to enhance the 3D effect. I wish my blue XL was blue on the inside.

  • Go2hell66

    The pink is to show how much nintendo europe love us

    • JMaster3000

      Cause there aren’t any other good colors than pink.

      • Brandonmkii

        There really aren’t. Teal comes close though.

  • Edzo04

    still dont get why everyone loves the XL. the stretched graphics alone were enough for me to sell it. i did love the stylus placement and matte finish though. wish they would redesign the original and make a 3ds lite or something. the ds lite is fantastic

    • Suicunesol

      Eh, it’s a case of clarity vs. size. For me, I couldn’t go back to the old 3DS after playing on the XL when I realized how dreadfully tiny the old screen was.

      A part of me also wants Nintendo to release a remodeled 3DS too, with slightly higher resolution screens if they can manage.

      • Kefkiroth

        A higher resolution wouldn’t work, because then all the old games would be stretched and look bad.

    • Brandonmkii

      I can’t even see that big of a difference.

    • I really just wanted the bigger size and longer battery life. The larder SD card also helped.

  • Tom_Phoenix
  • Juan AndrĂ©s Valencia

    The pink is definetely shocking.

  • Ordered the soft pink 3DS XL Fire Emblem Here I coome!!!!

  • Caleb

    I would normally complain that yet ANOTHER 3DSXL color is coming out somewhere other than NA, but honestly, I would probably be more upset if this color was coming out here. It would be like a slap in the face, reassuring me that only wacky or unattractive colors schemes are used for NA XL’s.

    Give us solid black at least! haha

  • CirnoLakes

    Not my kind of pink, personally. I like my light pink and white 3DS.

    But good for the UK.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Yeah, I WISH they were releasing a Viewtiful Joe themed 3DS!

  • Kai2591

    welp. my light-pink/white 3DS gots nothin on this!

  • Anesia Hunter

    I still feel like the pearl pink 3ds looks better, just because it’s not an outrageous pink (like this 3ds xl) and atleast feels like someone older than 12 can enjoy.
