Nintendo Announces Zelda Special Edition 3DS XL

/ 3 years ago

Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds

A new “Golden” edition Nintendo 3DS XL has been officially announced. Though it has been rumoured for quite some time now that there would be a “Legendary” version released. Mr. Eiji Aonuma officially announced this Special Edition Nintendo 3DS XL and has given a release date for November 22.

As the years have gone by we have seen many golden cartridges for Zelda games, now we are getting a Nintendo 3DS XL. Normally the 3DS XL would retail for $199 this special edition will retail for $219 but will also come with a digital copy of A Link Between Worlds which retails for $39. If you’re in the marked for a new 3DS then this may be the way to go, getting yourself a new Gold and Black Zelda themed handheld system.

A Link Between Worlds is set to release on November 22, the same day that the Nintendo 3DS XL bundle comes out.

“Hello everyone, I am the producer of The Legend of Zelda games, Eiji Aonuma. We have a tradition of making the Zelda series gold. Today, I would like to introduce a new product that follows that tradition. A gold-colored Nintendo 3DS XL that will be on sale the same day as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. I am grateful for the fans supporting Zelda over the years. Please enjoy Link’s new adventure with the gold system”

The system is gold-colored just as you may remember the cartridge for The Legend of Zelda on the NES. Keeping true to the tradition the new 3DS XL will Gold on one the front, while the back will be black representing parallel worlds that Link travels to in the game. Both sides will feature the iconic Triforce on the exterior.

The game will be familiar to those who had hours of enjoyment playing A Link to the Past on the SNES, taking place in the same Hyrule after many years have passed. In A Link Between Worlds Link will venture between Hyrule and Lorule using a power that lets him become a drawing on walls. Players will get to solve puzzles and explore dungeons in a new way.

Thank you for providing us with this information.
