Transparent Nintendo 2DSes for Europe ⊟
Remember that prototype 3DS XL with transparent casing that Nintendo teased us with in an Iwata Asks session? That never actually released as an actual product, but the platform holder has made something similar with the 2DS for Europe, creating clear Red and Blue versions of the budget handheld.
Nintendo used to make a lot of these transparent systems for the Game Boy, GB Pocket, and GBA, but it’s been a while since the company has returned to this style (the New 3DS also has clear colored cover plate options). These 2DSes will release as standalone units in Europe on November 7, and as bundles with pre-installed copies of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on November 28. Thanks to NintenDaan for the pics!
A closer look at the NSMB 2 and Animal Crossing 3DS special edition XL systems coming to Japan, the latter of which looks like either a Louis Vuitton pattern or underwear, depending on who you ask. If you ask our readers, their heads will fill with pantsu.
There will be another Mini Nintendo Direct dedicated to Animal Crossing: Jump Out and broadcasting this Friday in Japan, 8 AM EST. You’ll be able to watch it here.

A shot of the snakeskin-style 3DS set to be included with the limited edition Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D system bundle coming to Japan on March 8.
Hideo Kojima offered his Twitter followers this cropped peek at the special 3DS and its “embossed snake pattern” last night. Like many others, I presumed the bundle would include either a standard system, or a simple branded 3DS similar to that cover from Hori’s accessory line for the game. So, this is a nice surprise!
Expect Japanese details for the bundle on January 20.

Rose Metallic 3DS and Nintendogs + Cats bundle spotted in next week’s Toys R Us circular. I can’t tell if this is the exact same color as the Coral/Misty Pink version of the portable that released in Europe, but if so, I wonder if the Ice White edition/bundle is far off?

The Ice White and Misty Pink 3DS models announced for Japan are headed to the West soon, too — but as far as we know, they’re coming to Europe, not North America.
They will release as bundles for Super Mario 3D Land (Ice White; wouldn’t Flame Red be more appropriate?) and Nintendogs + Cats (Coral Pink) on November 18. Nintendo will sell them as standalone systems in December, too.
