Usually, Nintendo releases wild color combinations and designs after the fact to supplement the boring plain colors that a system launched with. But for some reason, Nintendo is preparing to release a black 3DS XL on August 11, alongside Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.
You’ll note that I said “alongside.” It’s not a bundle. That would be more likely to be a 3DS XL with some kind of fun Mario & Luigi design patterned all over it. No, this is just a sexy, streamlined black handheld which will join the other regular colors: blue, red and pink. So it’s not a special limited-edition or anything, just a new regular color. But if you don’t go in for all that colorful malarky and just want basic black, well now you can!
