New Nintendo 3DS XL’s Coming This Fall

image

Four new Nintendo 3DS XL’s will soon be coming out in the fall of this year. First, two Super Smash Bros. 3DS XL’s will be released on the same day the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS demo gets on the eShop, September 19th, in stores everywhere. Then on October 10th, an NES-themed 3DS XL will be available exclusively at GameStop. A Persona Q 3DS XL coming out on the day of release for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, November 25th, also a GameStop exclusive. I hope some of you who don’t have a 3DS or 3DS XL yet will consider buying one of them. (Or all of them if you’re a collector.)

I’ll see ya later.
