We reported yesterday that North America will be getting a special edition Mickey-themed 3DS XL on 11th April to coincide with the release of Disney Magical World. Now we know the Walmart-exclusive 3DS XL will retail for $199.96, and it will not include a copy of the game... despite the Disney Magical World logo emblazoned on its shell.
The new Walmart product page for the Mickey 3DS XL also gives us a slightly closer look at the minimalist white-and-gold design, although we can't see the interior of the console. It continues Nintendo's recent trend of special edition consoles that don't include a copy of the game advertised on the box, as we saw with the Pokémon X & Y 3DS XL and the Yoshi's New Island 3DS XL. It does nevertheless, have a 4GB SD card as normal, and these models cost less than the Link Between Worlds special edition XL system that came with a download code for the game.
Do you think game-less special edition consoles will become Nintendo's standard from now on? Will you be picking up a Mickey 3DS XL? Let us know in the comments.
