Retro-Themed New Nintendo 3DS XL – SNES Edition Out On October 13th


Nintendo of Europe has announced plans to release a New Nintendo 3DS XL – Super Nintendo Entertainment System Edition, set to tap into the excitement that has surrounded the SNES Classic Edition.

The retro-themed system has an outer shell that looks to pay tribute to the classic design of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, with the Nintendo 3DS buttons to be coloured just like the original system’s controllers – a scheme that was previously only available with the New Nintendo 3DS.

To coincide with this, Nintendo has also announced that Super Mario 3D Land, Luigi’s Mansion 2, and Kirby Triple Deluxe will all join the Nintendo Selects range, and will be priced at £15.99 on the Nintendo eShop.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL – Super Nintendo Entertainment System Edition will see release across Europe on October 13th.
