Luigi-themed 3DS LL Headed To Japan

By Kevin on Apr 17 2013 12:49 PM
During the Japanese Nintendo Direct Luigi Special 2 earlier today, another 3DS LL (known as 3DS XL in the west) handheld has been announced. Since it's the Year of Luigi, Japan thought it appropriate to add a Luigi-themed 3DS LL model to their already flavorful lineup. A price and release date are yet to be announced, but it does come with Mario & Luigi RPG 4: Dream Adventure pre-installed on the included 4GB Secure Digital (SD) card.

What are your thoughts? Do you hope to see something like this come to North America or Europe?

Nintendo continues to make it hard for me to decide on a 3DS to import. I was planning to go for one next weekend, which I'll probably still do, but I'm really tempted to place an order for this one, too.
Cool, another great way to show that it is the year of Luigi.
I really love the look of this model. From afar it looks to be camo print but when you look closer you see Luigi's form in multiple poses. I also adore the Year of Luigi emblem on the bottom.
hijoni kuru; very cool.

i wish i had a 3-DS ^^;
This is really nice! I was hoping for an all green unit to go with a Luigi's Mansion bundle here in the US. Fingers crossed we get this.

Did anyone notice that Mario snuck in on the back of the 3DS? Check the top right corner.

I was thinking the same about the camo print.  This is so cool.  If it comes to the U.S. I may have to buy.
Neat!

But it seems like it would be better for Nintendo to make skins for 3DS instead....What are you supposed to do if you already own an XL (or LL in this case)? Keep buying the new version every time they release one? Impossible.  3DS skins would make it so much easier!
soo cool! ;_;
and alas I will probably never see it here ;_;

Though who knows, some sticker clones might come out and I might get those instead and pretend I have one of those (tho it would probably look weird on Silver LOL)
I think the saddest part about all of these releases is the fact that Nintendo of America hardly got any "white" 3DS XL until the Pink / White model was released. Now we are getting the Animal Crossing: New Leaf edition. It would be awesome if this made it to North America as well but I am just a bit sore since I already own the Black/Blue model but originally wanted a white model since the White LL was announced. :(
