Luigi 3 DS XL

Back during the April Nintendo Direct, the Japanese broadcast showed off the new Luigi 3DS XL model, and it wasn't revealed for other territories. Considering it's a special edition to tie-in with the release of Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, we're running out of time for confirmation that it's coming to the West — E3, if we're lucky?

In any case, details have now emerged for the new XL. As expected it'll arrive in Japan on 18th July, and it'll include a digital copy of the game pre-installed on the system's 4GB SD card. It'll cost 22,800 Yen, which is more than a standard XL in the region by roughly $20-25, meaning that those that opt for the hardware are ultimately getting the game for slightly less than normal.

We do have the Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS XL bundle on the way, however, so it's not all bad.

We do rather like this Luigi design, so let us know whether you want it to come Westward in the comments below.
