If you were planning on picking up Metroid: Samus Returns then I’ve got great news for you. Nintendo is releasing a new limited edition of their New 3DS XL to commemorate the game’s upcoming September release. They are calling it the New 3DS XL Samus Edition.
The New 3DS XL Samus Edition is a beautiful system that features an orange face plate with a ghosted image of Samus in her iconic firing position. The back of the system is a beautiful golden color that features the same geometrical patterns as seen on the face plate.
As to be expected there are no changes to the system other than the cosmetic flare. For those of you unfamiliar with the New 3DS XL, the system will provide the following features:
- Face Tracking 3D – Allows for a better 3D experience
- New Controls – The ZL, ZR and C stick which allow for new abilities in most games
- NFC Reader – For easy Amiibo scanning
- New Processor – Faster loading times than the original 3DS XL
- Exclusive gaming content
The New 3DS XL Samus Edition will be releasing along side Metroid: Samus Returns on September 15th for $199.99 USD. Please note this is not a bundled deal and the game is sold separately. It is also worth mentioning that, as with other editions of the New 3DS XL, the AC power adaptor is not included with the console.
