During the GameStop Expo Nintendo announced 3 new skins for the 3DS XL yesterday and they became available for pre-order through their respective retailers today. 

The first to release will be the Smash Bros. System in Red or Blue, which releases September 19 at the usual retail of $199.99. You can snag one of these to prepare for the October release of Smash Bros.


My personal favorite is the NES skinned system available exclusively through GameStop. It will retail for the standard $199.99 and will be available Oct. 10, 2014. 


The final design is the Persona Q limited edition which will be available November 25, 2014 for the same price as the other special systems. It is also a GameStop exclusive and does not come bundled with the game.


Do any of these new designs tickle your fancy? Or will you be holding out to see if the NEW 3DS hits shelves in the U.S. next year? Sound off below!
