New LovePlus+ boxart and 3DS XL ⊟
I almost forgot that Konami announced another one of these updated games for the dating sim series. I always find the odd text on the packaging for these releases amusing: “We travel 365 days a year. Laughing in the rain, holding your hand under the sun. Our journey has just begun… LOVEPLUS”
No surprise that there will be three limited edition 3DS XLs for each of the game’s love interests, which Konami seems to do with each update. When these hit Japan next spring, each ¥32,000 ($320) set will include “the game, a 40-page visual & creation book, an illustration sheet with drawings of the lady in question, and a binaural CD with ten minutes of her engaging in intimate conversation with you,” according to Crunchyroll.
Hints of Zelda 3DS XL bundle coming to the U.S. ⊟
That gold, limited edition Zelda 3DS XL bound for Europe could also make its way to the States, if this purported GameStop circular for Black Friday is to be trusted. Apparently there’s also a Luigi’s Mansion 3DS bundle on the way, too.
The limited edition Zelda DS Lites and 3DSes released around Black Friday, so it’s no surprise if this one does too!
Gold, limited edition The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL bundle releasing in Europe next month ⊟
This releases on November 22 for £199.99 ($319), and comes with a downloadable copy of the game. Retail copies of the game in Europe, by the way, have a reversible cover with the all-gold/U.S. art and a full-color version.
If this isn’t enough proof (along with the Fire Emblem 3DS XL bundle and the Chotto Mario handhelds) that Europe is winning the special edition systems war as far as Western territories go, Nintendo also intends to release the amazing Year of Luigi 3DS XL there on November 1 for £179.99 ($287).
I’m 98 percent sure Nintendo will bring the Zelda 3DS XL at least to the U.S. around Black Friday, just like it did with the Zelda 3DSes and DS Lites.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL bundle for the U.S.
As expected! Priced at $219, releasing with the game on June 9. It’s also coming to Europe on June 14. The system will include a pre-installed copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Europe’s Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS XL bundle
Even though Europe will receive Fire Emblem: Awakening a couple months later than North America, the region scored this nice exclusive. The rest of us are stuck with standard 3DS bundles, but Europe gets a 3DS XL limited edition bundle when the game releases on April 19. Awakening will also have slightly different boxart and a better looking logo in Europe (Kellam still gets snubbed, though).
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will also have special Wii U (32 GB) and 3DS XL bundles in Europe — the former will include a black console and a black Wii U Pro Controller, while the latter will offer a black 3DS XL. The Circle Pad Pro will also launch there on the same day.
The Fire Emblem 3DS bundle will cost $200
That seems a little steep considering this is just a standard 3DS, and the Mario Kart 7 3DS XL bundle has the same price (albeit for an older game). Also, in the press release it sent out today, Nintendo of America makes no mention of this package including a prepaid ¥1,000/$11 eShop card like the Japanese edition.
What it does include is the limited edition blue 3DS with a 4GB SD card and a digital copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening. As with the game, it ships on February 4.
Something I neglected to mention before, by the way: the North American release will feature dual-language support, so you can listen to Japanese voice acting if you prefer.

Fire Emblem 3DS bundle North America-bound
Nintendo of America has formally announced that this previously Japan-only bundle is coming to the States! It’s about time more of these limited edition 3DSes started coming to our shores — I have my fingers crossed that we’ll eventually see the beautiful Animal Crossing and Dragon Quest Monsters (or has that ship sailed?) ones here, too.

This Blue/Black Nintendo 3DS XL bundle with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed goes on sale for $200 starting December 2 — another decent system deal, considering the handheld alone is typically sold for that price.
Whats really interesting about this news is it falls in line with recent gossip that the standard-size 3DS will be sold for $140 by at least one retailer soon.

Nintendo 3DS + Super Mario 3D Land's Black Friday bundle. The system, which comes with a pre-installed copy for one of the best games released last year, is priced at $170 — not bad since that's how much the handheld usually costs alone, and the game typically sells for $40.
Of course, if you visit this site on the reg and don’t already have a 3DS plus a copy of Super Mario 3D Land, I wonder where we went wrong…

Of course there’s a Wii U bundle for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate! In Japan. Launching December 8, the package includes the Wii U Deluxe Set, the game, and a Wii U
Monster Hunter Pro Controller for ¥38,850 ($498), ¥7,350 more than the Deluxe set alone.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be out in March in North America. Don’t expect a hardware bundle! Here’s producer Ryozo Tsujimoto announcing the game yesterday, and showing off its first English screenshot.

The Bravely Default Collector’s Pack looks as attractive as the 3DS game. Sold exclusively through Square Enix’s e-store in Japan, the limited edition bundle includes the game, an art album for Akihiko Yoshida’s illustrations, a giant AR poster, a 3DS protective case, and more.
This set is going for ¥12,800 ($164), and will begin shipping in Japan with the game on October 11. Square Enix brought the special edition Kingdom Hearts bundle here, so who knows, maybe it will do the same for this, if the publisher releases Bravely Default in the U.S.
Also, Dengeki posted new screens and details for the game, showing off some non-combat/overworld stuff for a change and looking at menus for a change.

Kingdom Hearts 3D's Mark of Mystery Edition, releasing in North America on July 31 for $54.99.
The limited edition package includes the following:
- a copy of Kingdom Hearts 3D
- a branded clear hard case skin cover
- set of 12 art cards meant to reflect the history of the Kingdom Hearts series
- set of five augmented reality cards to unlock rare Dream Eaters and more
- and a branded magnetic box to keep it all in
It’s not the special edition 3DS that Japan got, but I don’t think anyone really expected that in the States anyway.
