    for Europe.
    Nintendo of america does it once again…

    • anthony apduhan

      It’s still Gamescom…

    • Link

      Its already day time in Europe, its dead of night here. Do you really expect an announcement from NoA at 3am when everyone is asleep?

    • デ オオカミ

      If you think about all those events and earlier releases you guys get, I’d say this would be just a small weight to balance things out. Seriously, Nintendo hasn’t done anything even remotely near to where I live since the day I was born, and that was the year Nintendo released the NES… In the US. :p

  • James Enk

    i want this so badly, it looks amazing

  • YoshEE

    I need it!!!

    • Overused meme is overused. You don’t need it…..

  • Akemi Homura

    I do feel like it could look better, but whatever, SMASH BROS 3DS XL BUNDLE! This is what I’ve been waiting for!

  • Kalis Konig

    I like how NOA always wait until 10 days before a game comes out to announce an XL. save your cash now if you are in the US because they will likely announce this last minute lol

  • Byron Kerrison II

    I still have my Pokemon X and Y Blue 3DS XL and 25th Anniversary Legend of Zelda 3DS…

    One more couldn’t hurt… right?

    • SuperSailorV

      Sitting on Mario&Luigi, Yoshi, ZeldaXL, Mickey, pkmnRed, and of course, my Pikachu…

      If this came stateside, I wouldn’t have a choice… (even though I think this looks tacky)

      • Byron Kerrison II

        You can never have enough. But it does look rather tacky, doesn’t it?

        Why doesn’t anything good ever come out during the summer? That’s when I, surprisingly, have the most money.

  • E.T.993

    2D art in my Smash Bros. Wut? I mean, it brings me right back to SSB64’s postcards.

  • Limbless

    Yeah, nah. I’m not buying another PAL 3DS unless it’s somehow region free.

  • Lemme guess. Smash Bros will come as a download code or pre-installed. As much as I want them, this is why I don’t have or will ever get a Limited Edition 3DS/XL. The 3DS/XL has limited space and I could use that space for all the great downloadable games and DLC…who am I kidding? All those download-only titles heading to European territories.

    • Brandonmkii

      Well, it does say “pre-installed” right on the box…

      • *Takes a closer look and sees it*……….shut up. -_-

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Dude, SD cards are dirt cheap… Its not that big a deal. And most of the DL only games are pretty small.

      • Zareka

        For anyone complaining about buying SD cards for the 3DS, I ask them to buy a Vita and see how long they last. :p

  • Kroz

    The whole reason i never upgraded to a XL is cuz i want a cool limited edition one and now i see this! awesome xD

    …wait, I live in Canada crap

  • DudeJericho

    If only this was region free…

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Im sure theyll announce it for America.

      • DudeJericho

        What I meant is that I wanted to play the Japanese 3DS games. I’m in the UK so PAL games aren’t a problem, but I already own a 3DS so besides it being XL and this design I don’t think it’s worth getting it. Although it’s still tempting.

  • I have to admit. THAT looks cool. But IMO, real men roll with this edition.

    And yeah, I am one of those :P

  • triablos

    I’ve had a normal 3ds for about 3 years now. After playing on my friend’s XL, I really want to get one! Theres barely a difference in screen quality and its much better built.

  • Herok♞

    I’ll take it if, it comes to NA with a different color than that overpowering red which is the only thing I don’t like about it, then again PQ might have its 3DS XL localized and I don’t want to miss it a second time so maybe I should wait

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    Beautiful edition and should sell well for those waiting to take the plunge to an XL. I love my Link Between Worlds edition, even though the game was a digital download only.

  • Guy Wesley

    Lol, I bought a 3DS in May in hopes that it came out in the summer. Now I see that they had a 3DS pack containing Smash…and only announced for Europe.

    Hopefully they’ll announce it for North America, but I highly doubt it considering that Nintendo of America might miss it on purpose.

    Maybe I shouldn’t be so pessimistic. Unless NoA purposely doesn’t want to make money, they won’t skip this. Besides, it’s still morning where we’re at.

  • The Watcher

    Wow, sorry but this looks incredible lazy to have gray characters.

    • i think you would prefer it in the end. ink is fairly expensive, and doing a multicolored print with ALL of the colors required for the characters would and could make the system very expensive to purchase.

  • SakuStar Light

    You when you think about it and i know most don’t. O_o i guess this is fair considering we did get to play smash early, get the smash coin, and smash goodies, plus we did host the world first super smash 4 event, and comic con smash tournament…NA did do allot of smash stuff but i guessing people will still have there own selfish view points on the matter just saying.

  • HYPERVENTILATES. (even though i live in NA)

  • The woes of being broke…

  • 하세요

    If it were just the Smash logo, then I’d like it. Copy/Pasting the box art just looks a little tacky to me. Keeping some designs simple is better in my eyes.

    • Snorlaxation

      Honestly, I like the image, since it reminds a bit of the Persona Q 3DS XL, but you know, I think you’re right. If it had just had the Smash logo that would’ve been pretty damn cool. Simple, but striking.

  • Ric Vazquez


  • GamerLegend

    Wonder if the Wii U will get a custom bundle?

  • AuraGuyChris

    Why not release that during the release day?

  • mckun

    Stupid Region lock making me not import this.

  • SlickRoach

    Good lord, that’s an epic XL! I pray to Palutena it comes to NA!

  • XaviIniesta

    Nice, but October 30? That’s almost a month after it gets released in EU and US. I think they’ll miss a lot of potential buyers releasing it so late.
    Also, hopefully they’ll announce it for America as well.

    • Joni Eskobar

      The Twitter account of NoE says it’s for October 03 (same day as the release of the game) not 30.

      • XaviIniesta

        Ah, I see.

  • Is “Super Smash Bros. for 3DS” seriously the actual, final name? What the hell?

    • 하세요

      That was established last year I believe.

  • Nogib

    Seriously FUGLY!!! Do not want.

  • Kaibun

    Kinda too red. Is there going to be a blue version?

  • HarakiriKami

    Looks gorgeous.
    I want it/.

  • HarakiriKami

    Looks gorgeous.
    I want it/.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Not bad :D I hope the box art looked like this.

  • Kornelious

    That….Looks AWESOME! If that comes the the U.S I might have to consider trading in the Zelda 3DS…..But I don’t know if I can wait a month longer! X(
