Black 3DS XL On the Way – Confirmed!

Last week, we mentioned that some recent Nintendo marketing suggested that the 3DS XL would be arriving in North America in black… but no one had actually confirmed if that was the case or not. Well, it didn’t appear on store shelves right away as we thought it might, but that’s okay—it’s still headed our way!

Nintendo has confirmed that the new color (or lack of color?) will be arriving on August 11th, which is conveniently also the same day that Mario & Luigi: Dream Team releases.

The company’s PR team has done its best to link the two releases together, however awkward it may sound:

“The system is launching on the same day as Nintendo 3DS game Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, so fans that pick up a new black system or already own a Nintendo 3DS can also play the exciting new entry in the much-loved Mario & Luigi role-playing series. Aug. 11 will be a classy day to become a new Nintendo 3DS owner.  Just make sure there is room in your tuxedo pocket or fancy purse!”

Uh… ooookay there, Nintendo. Guess it’s time to break out the tuxedo (or fancy purse…?) and make sure my handheld console accessory matches…!
