New limited edition 3DS XL set for release in Japan

Check out the Super Robot Wars 3DS XL

Super Robot Wars Taisen UX will be released in Japan on 14 March 2013 and to celebrate, Namco Bandai are releasing a special 3DS XL.

Unbelievably, the Super Robot Wars 3DS XL is the 30th different design of 3DS since the console was launched in 2011.

Super Robot Wars Taisen UX is the first game in the Strategy RPG series to be released on 3DS. It is a series that began on Game Boy in 1991 but don't expect the 3DS edition to come to the UK as only a few games in the series have been released outside of Japan, including Super Robot Taisen for GBA and Endless Frontier: Super Robot Taisen OG Saga for Nintendo DS. Both were released by Atlus in the US.

Anyway, take a look at the special edition 3DS XL and let us know what you think of it. As far as the special editions go, it is one of the more subtle ones.

    And when you're not playing video games on it, you can close it up and set it down for a game of Star Trek Battleship.

    Take the Super away, ideal 3DS.

    Very good-looking again.

    I'm looking into getting my brother a 3DS XL for his birthday. Am I right in thinking that the only colours as yet available in the UK are White, Blue, Silver, Red and Pikachu?
