Nintendo has announced that they will be releasing a new theme for their handhelds in the form of the Pokémon Sun and Moon themed Nintendo 3DS XL in North America. Nintendo had previously confirmed the new design for Japan and Europe but there had been no word on North American players having access, until now.
The newly designed theme will be available starting on the 28th October 2016 ahead of the game November release. It is officially known as Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition and features both Legendary Pokémon. In Europe, the same 3DS XL design is known simply as the Nintendo 3DS XL Pokémon Sun and Moon Edition. The Limited Edition will be available for $199.99 / £179.00.
Also to note, some eager people have started selling skins for existing 3DS XL’s with the same design although it is likely Nintendo will deal with those accordingly.
