Our New Nintendo 3DS XL review unit has arrived. I’ll be reviewing the system over the course of the next week or so while replaying The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and starting up Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the first time.
The system Nintendo sent us was not, in fact, the Majora’s Mask special edition that other outlets received. Instead, we got the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate edition, complete with the game and a gloriously silver look. I took a few pics of it, its box and my old Nintendo 3DS XL for some comparison. Here it is open.
Now, I know you’re going to ask about my theme, so here you go. It’s a Slowpoke theme, it’s selling for $1.99 and it’s worth every penny. Here it is in motion on the system, complete with a healing Pokémon sound effect when you open the clamshell.
It’s based on this amazing and completely official music video from Nintendo of Japan and The Pokémon Company.
We’ll have more on the New Nintendo 3DS XL as we have it. Stay tuned for our full review.
