As announced by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata during a Nintendo Direct presentation, Japan is scheduled to receive three new 3DS XL bundles this year, two of which sport custom designs. Interestingly, these packages include their individual game pre-installed on an SD card.
Monster Hunter 3G will arrive on November 1 bundled with a black 3DS XL for 18,900 yen; Animal Crossing: Jump Out is getting its own model the following week for 22,800 yen (shown above); and lastly, the custom New Super Mario Bros 2. 3DS XL bundle, also 22,800 yen, is going to launch on November 15.
I doubt it would come to the United States, but I really do love the look of that Animal Crossing one. Perhaps we'll get the red Mario 3DS instead -- it's not bad, either!
