These consoles make it four new editions of 3DS that have been announced in a matter of weeks. The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL will be released in the UK on 22 November, a Monster Hunter 4 is coming to Japan on 7 December and now we have these two new consoles.

It also means that there are now 52 different designs of 3DS.

What do you think of these new colours? Would you like them to be released in the UK?

    They actually look really cool. Although I would only buy one if they were the same price as all other 3DS XLs otherwise I would rather have a special edition!

    As a Wolves fan, I took a shine to the Zelda XL, never mind an actual orange and black one!

    Yeah, we know. Didn't write about this in this article because it's not actually an all-new 3DS. It was released in Japan in the summer.

    Nope, don't like them. I don't like how the buttons and stylus are different colours. If there were a green one, then we'd be talking.

    Fair enough. :) I've had my eye on those Japanese Luigi ones all this time, so I preordered a European one for myself the other day. :)

    The Tourquoise and Black looks nice but if I could re-buy my 3DS it would be the zelda XL

    Both look pretty cool. But I already have an XL, so unless my white one breaks I'll pass.

    If it was white and turquoise I would buy it in a heart beat (and if it was coming to the UK!) They look pretty cool though, although I would have thought a tech/diy minded person could mod their own XL like this if they really wanted.

    I would really love to see these colours in Europe, I like the orange one especially!
