Nintendo Announces Mint White 3DS XL For Japan

Tomodachi Collection bundle coming, too

During Nintendo's latest Japanese Nintendo Direct, the company announced a brand new minty fresh colour to its ever expanding 3DS colour collection — a Mint White 3DS LL (XL in the West). The new addition will release in Japan on the 18th April, and will retail for 18,900 Yen (approx. €150 / £131 / $196).

Nintendo didn't announce just one new 3DS LL, but two during the presentation. Arriving on the very same day as the Mint White handheld is a hardware bundle for upcoming 3DS title Tomodachi Collection, featuring white casing and green chat bubbles. It symbolizes the game it's representing, as Tomodachi Collection is a communication game allowing you to interact with other Miis. It'll come pre-installed on the system, and will be sold for 22,800 Yen (approx. €181 / £158 / $236).

Would you like to see either of these colours venture to the West? Let us know, as always.
