Here’s the back of the Yoshi 3DS XL ⊟
I’m coming around to this limited edition system’s design — the eggs on the white back are cute. Nintendo of America formally announced the hardware this morning, pricing it at $199 for a March 14 release. As we suspected, the system does not include a digital or physical copy of Yoshi’s New Island.

Gachapin Accessory Update ⊟
Can you believe it’s been a year since I posted a Gachapin accessory? What have we even been putting on this website? Well anyway, let’s get back to business.
Here’s Cyber Gadget’s Gachapin X Mukku Silicon Cover for 3DS XL and Protection Sheet for Wii U GamePad. One day I’m actually going to watch some of their show so I know something non-accessory related about the characters, but I’ll never stop posting these things.
I’ll never stop.

Looks like Yoshi 3DS XL will head to U.S. too ⊟
The unimaginative special edition Yoshi 3DS XL that’s headed to Europe will likely release in North America on March 13 for $199.99, according to this alleged Toys R Us circular. If our version is like Europe’s, the system won’t include the game, which is :o/
I totally forgot that Yoshi’s New Island is out in less than two weeks. I don’t think I’ve been nearly as pessimistic about the game as
Fran others — I’m hoping that what Arzest delivers is more exciting than this 3DS’s design!

New Theathrythm's box, 3DS XL bundle preorder ⊟
Not a bad cover for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call! It’s the same design as what’s on the special edition 3DSL XL for Japan, except with more cover. That hardware bundle, by the way, is now available to preorder from Play-Asia for $413.99. Importing a system is really expensive! Still, I know some of you were considering taking the plunge with this kit.
Rumor: Get Pokemon XY free when you register a 3DS and game with Club Nintendo next month ⊟
No need to murder your parents, kids — despite the promises of the disembodied fish in this comic from Jeremy Kaye (Up and Out / Patreon). It looks like Club Nintendo US has a fun promotion coming up, according to a convincing Toys R Us advertisement posted at Go Nintendo.
The way the purported promotion works, you can get a free digital copy of Pokemon X or Y when you register a 3DS/2DS/XL on Club Nintendo some time in March along with one of six first-party games:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Lego City: Undercover
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Mario Kart 7
Yay, so all you moms and dads out there can sleep easy… For now.
Persona Q's 3DS XL, subbed trailers ⊟
We don’t have a photo of it yet, but we now know that Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will have a special edition 3DS XL system and bundle when it hits Japan on June 5. All first-run copies of the game will also include a Persona Q: Sound of the Labyrinth arrange album from the Atlus Sound Team.
Atlus released two full-length (instead of the usual character-focused) trailers for the game today, which we have subtitled for you thanks to Pepsiman. First up, here’s the trailer for the Persona 4 group:
Still want this Bravely Default 3DS XL case ⊟
Much like Bravely Default's collector's edition, these cases are no longer available on Amazon, and I'm very sad about this all. At least it looks like there are a couple of them on eBay.
Lots of Bravely Default posts popped up on gaming sites today, which is a good thing since a lot of you who ordered the game online are still waiting for it to arrive (hopefully this doesn’t happen to your order — or this nightmare scenario). Here are some of those links:
- Kotaku’s Tips for Playing Bravely Default
- Joystiq made one of those too
- USgamer’s Eight Great RPGs You Should Play if You Like Bravely Default and several Bravely Default guides
Game tips/guides must be significant traffic draws for these sites now! Credit to Staci for the pic.
PREORDER Bravely Default, upcoming games
This Wal-Mart deal doesn’t quite match the awesomeness of Target’s identically priced Zelda 3DS XL bundle a few weeks ago, but at least this one won’t end with someone stealing your credit card info (maybe).
The online sale includes the limited edition silver 3DS XL, a digital copy of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team installed, a 4GB SD card, and free shipping. Speaking of game deals from the brothers Mario, here are some on Amazon:
- Paper Mario: Sticker Star - $21.98
- New Super Mario Bros. 2 - $29.99
- Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon - $30.74
If you want Mario Party: Island Tour, that’s also discounted to $33.61.
Custom Famicom 3DS XL ⊟
WayForward’s James Montagna put together this rad Famicom-color 3DS XL using, it looks like, a Zelda 3DS XL and a red one. It’s pictured here among his other Famicom-style handhelds and some business card cases.
Bold move, taking apart the sought-after Zelda 3DS XL!
Apparently it’s Cyber Monday of Luigi ⊟
That’s according to a press release Nintendo sent out for the limited edition Mario & Luigi: Dream Team 3DS XL bundle, which comes out today ($199.99, though Best Buy has it for $20 cheaper, and Walmart is selling it with two free 3DS games). Images above are via Favocado.
I am told that “Cyber Monday of Luigi” is not what I think it is, so instead of sharing the gigs of salacious Luigi pics I’ve saved over the years, I’ll just list the notable online sales we’re seeing for games today:

Instead of putting up a bunch of sales posts, I’ll try to add new deals to this one. You can also follow us on Twitter for updates on new discounts, or if you want to send us dirty Cyber Monday of Luigi tweets.
Zelda 3DS XL bundle $150 at Target ⊟
Well this deal is wacky. I can’t handle this deal. We even double-checked with Nintendo to make sure it didn’t mix up its bundles because this sounds too good to be true, but the company says this sale is for sure gonna happen.
Between November 28 and November 30, all 3DS XL hardware will be discounted to $150 at Target… including the new Zelda 3DS XL, according to Nintendo. Which comes with A Link Between Worlds. And looks super nice.
I’m not sure you want to be in a store at this time of year, but man, it’s a great deal if you happen to end up in one (I have a feeling these things will be sold out instantaneously).
The good news is that $150 is a great price for whatever 3DS XL you can find! Image via miggggg.
You can get a new 3DS XL in several colors (Blue/Black, Black/Black, Red/Black) for $170 right now, $30 off its usual price. The standard-sized Cosmo Black 3DS currently has the same discount, priced at $140, too.
