Here you go, releases 3/14

As far as I know TRS is still offering a free $19.99 game when you buy any 2DS or 3DS system.

13 days and no official announcement though? 

The Target and BB ads have been leaked for that sales week and they didn't mention it though.... is it a TRU exclusive?

 

 

Edit: And I'd bet that isn't a bundle but a themed console.

No it's not.  They most likely didn't announce it since it MSRP and Nintendo.  Got to remember TRU target audience for ads vs best buy and targets.

Ugh, if it werent pre-installed I might consider it. But I think 4 XL''s for one man is too many

It's not exclusive to TRU and I don't think it comes with the game.

I just have the two of each Zelda bundles sealed and a purple/black that a play on regularly.  Zelda anything seems to hold it's value better than everything else N puts out.

I believe you... just wake me up when someone reputable outside of TRU puts it up for preorder. I'd like to actually get one.

 

Hopefully my local ma & pa media store gets it. They got Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing and seem to get looked over by most of the hardcore scalpers.

This 3DS looks really slick. No point in owning 3 of the same handheld though. I have the Pikachu 3DS that I originally used to play for a bit but decided to just display it and just got a regular black one to use on a daily basis.

 

Don't know what the point would be in having a Yoshi one to display as well.

Kmart has this advertised too

For what it's worth, IGN verified this bundle for North America nearly a month ago

Yeah because I mean you wouldn't possibly get redirected to websites claiming we're going to get a Luigi console or any of the various European pokemon consoles....

 

still waiting on that Luigi console everyone said we were getting

Agreed

I have the Pikachu, Zelda, X/Y Red, and Mario and Luigi ones. I currently use the Pikachu but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna switch to the Zelda soon (Unless they announce a new one I want soon). I regret passing on the Animal Crossing one since it seems to be closest to Pikachu in rarity

As tempted as I am to spend some of my tax return money to get it, no pre-installed Yoshi's Island game kind of kills it for me.

Just speculation so take it with a grain of salt...

 

but if we don't see online preorders open up soon I'm going to assume it will have a small print run. I know most nintendo handhelds have small(er) print runs but there have been some exceptions and most of those were announced in advance, bundled with a game, and available for preorder-----which doesn't apply to this Yoshi system.

I fucking love it!  I'm glad I have my modern silver and black M&L one, but damn if the inside is black I might wet myself.

I really like that 3DSXL. If I didn't already have a regular 3DS, it would have been a must buy for me

that's normal, the last few bundles  haven't gotten an announcement until a few days before if at all.

Same here, except I already have a 3DS XL.  Being broke most of the time, I can't justify myself getting a second 3DS XL.  If this was a Yoshi themed 3DS or 2DS, I might be swayed into considering a purchase of a second Nintendo handheld for this generation.

most of the consoles were not available for preorder and most of them are not rare.

Well I preordered Fire Emblem Animal Crossing and Zelda well in advance.

 

I know the Pokemon (Pikachu) wasn't available for preorder but both Red and Blue where. The only other one that just popped up was the M&L Dream Team.

 

Always a crapshoot though.

 

most of the consoles were not available for preorder and most of them are not rare.

 
Explain because I have everyone and preordered most.
 
Which ones other then Zelda (XL) and M&L can you find new consistently for less then MSRP? At this moment....

I dunno, with all the 3DS XL deals in the past, it just feels kind of wrong to pay $200 for one, even if it's a Yoshi LE.

Same here, not too long ago Target had them for $135 right (I think it included the M and L edition too)?

Yeah, then Walmart sold em again for like 150$ barely a few weeks later, and I think just in the past week or two they had them for around that price again.
