It wouldn’t be a 3DS release without some special game-specific editions of the system. While the New 3DS XL is releasing only in red and black versions for its general launch, it’s also getting two special editions.

Zelda fans can look forward to a The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask New 3DS XL, pictured above. The system doesn’t, it should be noted, come with a copy of Majora’s Mask, as noted by GamesBeatIt’ll retail for the same $199.99 price tag as the standard edition, however, so at least Nintendo isn’t asking for a premium on it.

Monster Hunter fans have a bit more to look forward to.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate releases alongside the new New 3DS XL and it, too, is getting a special edition model. That one will, unlike Zelda, come with the system. It’ll retail for $229.99 and will look very similar to the Japanese version, pictured below.

Both editions will be available when the system releases on Feb, 13, 2015. And why I say “available,” I mean sold out and selling for double the price on your favorite auction site.
