In a bit of a surprising move Amazon has opened pre-orders on a New Nintendo 3DS XL - Super NES Edition in North America, which hasn't (at the time of writing) been revealed by Nintendo [Update: Nintendo of America has now re-tweeted an official announcement by Amazon].

Pre-orders on both Amazon US and Amazon Canada give a release date of 27th November, with box art showing that Super Mario Kart is pre-installed on the device. An equivalent arrived with the relevant regional design in Europe recently, but there'd been little indication that Nintendo of America was planning to follow suit.

It's priced at $199.99 in the US and CDN$239.99 in Canada; pre-order links are below.
