Yoshi’s New Island 3DS XL confirmed for North America


Last month images of a Yoshi’s New Island 3DS XL bundle surfaced that turned out to be fan-made, but Nintedo later confirmed a Yoshi’s New Island 3DS XL bundle for Europe. This is the first Nintendo 3DS XL console to be released that features the color green prominently, as last year’s Year of Luigi 3DS XL bundle was mostly white with green silhouettes of Luigi’s various forms.

This new model features Yoshi on the front with several Yoshi eggs on the back and will be releasing on March 14th along with the game in Europe. Today, Nintendo of America confirmed that North America will see the new Yoshi 3DS XL released in North America on the same date. The only weird thing about this bundle is that you won’t get a copy of Yoshi’s New Island with it, which is rather bizzare since most 3DS XL bundles that are modeled after a certain game usually feature that game as pre-installed on the 3DS XL itself.
