Special Metroid themed 3DS announced

This morning Nintendo announced a stunning New 3DS XL special edition system for Metroid: Samus Returns.

The red and gold console sports a sleek look with a full 3D screen, unlike the New 2DS XL which released last month.

This model doesn’t have a price yet but it likely costs $199.99. It isn’t clear if it comes with the game or not at the time of this post.

It will ship on September 15th, the same day as Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS.

Additionally, Nintendo has confirmed that there will be a traditional hard mode available to players without having to purchase the Metroid amiibo figure. To access Samus’s fusion suit and Fusion difficulty, players will have to use the Metroid amiibo figure.
