Nintendo doesn't do things by halves. November may mark the release month of the Wii U console in Europe, but that hasn't stopped the company from pushing out another piece of tech in the same time period.

Today marks the release of the white 3DS XL Super Mario 3D Land bundle in Europe, which follows on from the Mario Kart 7 bundle earlier this month. Both of these bundles come pre-installed with a copy of the relevant game. We were lucky enough to get our hands on this new-look 3DS XL and came away incredibly impressed - so impressed in fact, we can barely bring ourselves to look at the old two-tone silver and black version we used previously.

Clad entirely in a lush white casing, this new console reminds us of the iconic DS Lite, which turned heads when it launched a few years back. The colour extends to the interior of the console, with pure white buttons and D-pad. It's a massive contrast to the stark black of the original 3DS XL, making it appear (dare we say it?) almost Apple-like. We approve!

Let us know your thoughts on this limited edition system in the comments section.
