Nintendo has confirmed that it is releasing new 3DS XL hardware bundles in Japan, with Animal Crossing and New Super Mario Bros. 2 themed consoles expected to hit store shelves in November.

At the start of November Nintendo will push the all-black 3DS XL onto store shelves for 18,900 yen ($240 / £150). That's just the console on its own, without a game. Alongside this will be a Monster Hunter Tri G (AKA Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate) bundle, which carries a retail price of 21,800 yen ($280 / £170) and comes with a copy of the game.

November 8th marks the launch of the Animal Crossing bundle at 22,800 yen ($292 / £180), while the 15th will see a New Super Mario Bros. 2 3DS XL hit stores shelves for the same price.

Interestingly, the games bundled with these machines won't be physical copies, but digital versions installed on each machine's 4 GB SDHC card.

There's currently no word on whether or not these limited edition systems will see the light of day outside of Japan, but when we know, you'll know.
