    I like it.

  • Bur

    Why don’t they want my money?

  • Estellise

    I love the design ;A; all of my wants…

    • Haseyo

      I feel we’re the few who actually enjoy this, front and back.

      • Estellise

        I don’t see why its disliked; it has a mocha/coffee color look to it. I think those colors really blend nicely together.

  • heartless141

    i was gonna throw my money at this till i see the lottery thing.
    why can’t you just buy stuffs in this country? >_> even concert tickets.

  • Solomon_Kano

    This is the first Pokemon XL I don’t particularly care for. I liked the Pikachu and Charizard ones, but this doesn’t do anything for me.

  • “Eevee 3DS” = overjoyed.

    Every other detail right down to the lid looking like something off of grandma’s coffee table = never mind.

  • I would certainly consider it if they brought it here.

    I’ve got a Zelda-themed 3DS Original as it is. I would consider a trade if this was stateside.

  • riceisnice

    The stripes totally have a French fashion vibe to them.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Or your Grandma’s couch.

  • idrawrobots

    Looks better from behind.

  • My money is on the year of Luigi 3ds xl

  • Silent

    Why the fuck have they put Eevee there, and that ugly lines on the top?

    • grevlinghore

      Because fuck logic,that`s why :>

  • AuraGuyChris

    I suppose this 3DS can evolve into eight different types?

  • JustThisOne

    I’m not going to lie, the stripes thing isn’t working out for this. If the colour palette was more muted and pastel, perhaps… but.. I guess Eevee just isn’t a good colour palette.

  • Will Jay

    Pretty much the only LE XL that isn’t tacky as fuck. The Eevee on the back sticks out, but you’ll be covering it with your hand anyway.

    I’d totally buy that if it came to the US.

  • Matthew Brannock

    I would be all over this if the back looked like the front

  • Aoshi00

    They really should sell the XL back faceplates separately like the original 360’s since they could be taken off.. would make things more fun w/o getting a new special edition every time.

  • OceanBlue

    Terrible front cover. Looks like something you’d see on a wallpaper from the 70s.

  • samjosiah

    I really like the front.. there isn’t a lot of handheld designs that look anything like this.
