During Gamescom today Nintendo of Europe has revealed that it will be launching a SNES-themed edition of the New Nintendo 3DS XL on 13th October.

This retro-themed system’s outer shell pays tribute to the classic design of the Super Nintendo, while inside the Nintendo 3DS buttons are coloured just like the original system’s controllers.

Of course this is pretty much the same as the Super Famicom New Nintendo 3DS XL already released in Japan, but it's great to get a domestic version finally. We expect a Super NES US version with a different design will be on the way at some point.

To celebrate this latest addition to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on the same day, three new titles join the Nintendo Selects range: Super Mario 3D Land, Luigi’s Mansion 2, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe. Each title will be available in Nintendo eShop for £15.99.
