Nintendo has proven that they are huge fans of limited 3DS XL editions, and though I’d speculate that this trend will soon be coming to an end, we can celebrate their latest creation.
Just in time for the release of A Link Between Worlds Nintendo revealed today that there will be a limited 3DS XL Zelda Bundle. Currently it has been announced for Europe only, however it’s likely that this special edition is going to be seen on store shelves on other continents as well. The hardware’s design is following the theme of A Link Between Worlds, and that being said I have to admit that it does so very well. The 3DS upper screen is golden with the golden Triforce on it, the bottom of the console on the other hand is colored black and shows the dark Triforce. Whenever you open this DS it therefore forms the famous logo of A Link Between Worlds. Note that the whole inside of the system comes in gold as well.
The bundle can be pre-ordered on the Nintendo UK online store and is listed for £199.99. Unlike the recent limited 3DS edition of Pokémon X and Y, this Zelda bundle includes a game, with A Link Between Worlds downloadable via a provided code.
Those of you who are eager to pre-order the bundle should keep in mind that it does NOT include a power adapter, which needs to be purchased separately.
Furthermore, Nintendo announced that their physical copy is going to include a reversible cover, so that players can choose how they want their copy of A Link Between Worlds to be displayed–much like the recent reversible cover included with the European version of The Wind Waker HD. They have the choice between a fully-coloured design or the classic golden image, the former supposedly appearing like the official artwork below:
