Back in black

Live in North America and dearly want to get your hands on an all-black 3DS XL? Well rest easy, because it looks like your wait could be over soon.

The black 3DS XL appears in the commercial for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, which suggests that it could be coming state-side in the not-too-distant future. Remember the Pikachu 3DS XL which was shown in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon advert? That hit stores shelves not long afterwards.

The new colour console — which has remained a bundle exclusive in Japan and Europe so far — is definitely hitting Canadian shores, as a retailer in that country has already released a flyer which pins the launch date as this weekend.

Will you be picking one of these up?
