Today at GameStop EXPO 2014, Nintendo announced that the 3DS XL will be getting three special edition designs for the holiday season.

Depending on what you’re into the new designs can be collector’s items or an excuse to purchase the Nintendo 3DS system, either way they’re expected to be in high demand. The special editions will be the Super Smash Bros. Edition, NES Edition and the Persona Q Edition. All three are available for pre-order today.

    This whole article makes me feel like a child all over again. The Nintendo controller one makes me want to go get a NES and play Double Dribble or Tecmo Bowl, LOL! I just bought my son the blue Super Mario designed 3ds, he went crazy and even did a video for me about it. You are right I think I’m going to use this as a excuse to get me one. I know a certain someone that has been wanting one, so I might get her it for Christmas, once again love the post!
