Black 3DS XL officially launching on August 11th


After a Canadian store flyer leaked the black 3DS XL, we’ve been waiting with bated breath hoping Nintendo would announce the console officially. That day is today and the release date coincides with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for North America, which is coming on August 11th.

The Nintendo 3DS XL system is about to get a little more formal. On Aug. 11, Nintendo is releasing a black version of the Nintendo 3DS XL hand-held system, joining the currently available range of colors: blue, red and pink.

Will you be picking up this new color? I gave in and bought a 3DS myself earlier this year because I wanted to play Fire Emblem and Etrian Odyssey, but I’ll be upgrading to this bigger screen and replacing my Cosmo Black Nintendo 3DS.
