New colors are incoming in Japan.

There's the mint white edition:

And then there's a special edition that's to be bundled with the new Tomodachi Collection game:

And then a Nintendo Direct video announcing all this:

I don't like the white colors because the matte white will get dirty and discolor very quickly, it might even turn yellow someday like the artic white GBA. Otherwise its very cool. I also don't like the two-toned black either. I don't mind the shiny colors of the original 3DS as long as its not the aqua blue, that one is hideous, the cobalt blue that just released is much better.

My white DS Lite has held up pretty well. I don't care about new colors though - it's not like I'm going to run out and buy an entirely new system!

My white GBA has other problems with it, but turning yellow isn't one of them.

Hi CAG, looking to purchase a 3DS XL while I'm here in Dubai but I want to make sure it's compatible with US games. All the readings I've done point to the systems sold here as being compatible, but could someone do me a favor? Would you kindly go into the language/country settings of their US 3DS XL and see if "United Arab Emirates" is listed as one of the countries?

I read that all compatible systems within a certain region are listed there. For clarification, the systems here have a "UAE/Saudi Arabia" or "Malaysia/Singapore" stickers on the front, which I've read all fall under the same region lock as US systems. They also do sell US games here (I'm assuming since they have the ESRB ratings and are clearly marked "NTSC" with a sticker). I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

BTW they also do sell PAL systems/games here. The NTSC systems at TRU have a sticker on them and the PAL games have a different ratings system in the corner.

I believe Dubai uses PAL, but that may not be the case for handheld games (or I could just be flat-out wrong). I really don't know... But I checked my region settings and UAE and Saudi Arabia are both listed.

I'm going to buy it probably.

I'd prefer the Charizard one though, but oh well.

They are. That's why he's trying to make sure he gets the correct region.

I'm glad about two things:

1) NA is finally getting a new XL color.

2) It's not one that I want, so I don't need to spend money I shouldn't.

Win/win.

Seriously, though, I'm actually super disappointed there's no green XL with the Luigi 'L' on it (like the Mario DSLite a few years back) for the Dark Moon release. I'd find the money. Oh yes, I would find the money.

Yeah, I don't really want a pikachu system to carry around and play, if I had oodles of money I would run out and buy one and put it on my shelf for display just to have it but that would be my purpose if I was buying it for myself. For playing and carrying around a system I want a neutral somewhat adult color.

Should I care about playing the Pikachu 3DS in public?

Because I don't really.

I don't think that a very good looking 3DS. The red dots on the cheek and the cameras make it look a little weird.

Oh dammit, looks like I'm buying a 3DS. Thanks for posting the info. I don't know why I want it really, I've never even played a Pokemon game. I think it + Luigis Mansion = want.

Now if only Sony would announce the damn Soul Sacrifice Vita..

So Nintendo is going the Skylanders route with Pokemon. Man, they are going to clean up.

Seems like they're being lazy with it though.

They could make it be something huge, but it doesn't look like they're going to.

They don't really need to. Why bother when virtually everything you slap the logo on sells gazillions out the store?

I would like see them do some custom 3DS' (or, more likely, skins) featuring whatever Pokemon you want.

BTW, if anybody is going to Japan this summer, they are doing another give away for the new movie. Since Nintendo already gave away Genesect, this time they will give away Mewtwo with its Dream World Ability and (for some reason) the move Hurricane.
