While the humble 3DS is overshadowed somewhat is our day to day news coverage, we've still got a lot of love for the little handheld that could. We've still got Metroid: Samus Returns, Monster Hunter StoriesPokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and lots more coming this year.

So now might be a great time to replace that battered 3DS you have with the ultimate version: a Super Nintendo-styled New 3DS XL. This limited edition is now available for preorder on Amazon UK for £179.99. This will ship within Europe, but there are sadly no plans to release the console in North America.

Other than the fact it looks amazing, here are some other things to remember about the New 3DS XL, via PR fluff:

  • Enjoy amiibo functionality with a range of Nintendo 3DS titles thanks to the built-in NFC reader/write
  • Nintendo 3DS XL allows you to play your entire 3DS and DS library
  • A second analogue stick and two extra shoulder buttons make for an enhanced gaming experience
  • Enhanced processing power means significantly faster loading times, download speeds and browsing
  • Maximise your gaming experience: The New Nintendo 3DS XL features the biggest screen of any 3DS to date

Available from 13th October, will you be pre-ordering this bad boy?
