With Super Smash Bros. getting ever closer to releasing on the Nintendo 3DS in less than two months in the US and Europe, and only a month in Japan, excitement for the game is hitting a peak right now. Earlier today, we told you about the pretty much expected reveal of the return of Meta Knight and now we have something almost equally expected, the announcement of a special Nintendo 3DS XL bundle with a specially themed 3DS XL included.
The Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Limited Edition Bundle comes with this awesome looking Super Smash Bros. themed design and Super Smash Bros. pre-installed. This news comes from the official Twitter page of Nintendo UK, right in the middle of the European based Gamescom. As a result, we have no idea if this bundle will be making its way to the US or if it will be a UK exclusive bundle. I would say it’s a pretty safe bet that it will make its way to the US at launch as well, but we’ll have to wait for an official announcement first.
I have been looking to upgrade my OG Nintendo 3DS to the XL model for some time now and this might just be the one that causes me to pull the trigger if it does come to the US. For those in Europe, this bundle will be launching alongside the game itself on October 3.
