Nintendo’s visit to Gamescom brought a lot of what they’ve already shown at shows such as this year’s E3, but they also showed off a few new things in their 3DS family lineup.
First up was the announcement of three new colors for the New Nintendo 3DS XL. These are Europe-exclusive colors, and as an American and a huge fan of Halloween I must say I’m jealous because the Orange + Black system is calling my name. The two other color schemes are an all-over Pearl White, and a Pink + White. Remember these are the New XL versions of the 3DS. That means bigger screens, a C-stick nub, and Amiibo functionality built in. If all of that sounds good to you, look out for these systems when they release on November 11, 2016.
In other, sort of Halloween related news, Yo Kai Watch is getting its own Nintendo 2DS bundle in Europe, out on October 7, 2016. The critically praised game comes pre-installed on a blue and black 2DS, and is a perfect way to introduce gamers young and old to the Nintendo family. If said family is more fashion-inclined, however, the same day will bring a second 2DS bundle. Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward will come pre-installed on a pink and white 2DS. Either of these bundles would make perfect gifts for a special day or the holidays, or as a treat for yourself. Which one catches your eye?
