North American Nintendo fans may be over the moon about the fact that the smaller New 3DS console - the one with the collectable cover plates - is finally coming to the US, but over in Japan they've got through quite a few special editions of the customisable handheld system already - and there's another being added to the list.

Sanrio and Nintendo have just announced that a new special Hello Kitty New Nintendo 3DS bundle is on its way. Expected to cost around 17000 Yen not including tax (approx £93 / $140 / 127 Euros), this should prove irresistible to any self-respecting Kitty fan (that's basically everybody, right?).

Of course, the chances of this bundle ever leaving Japan are slim, but if you're really keen then you could always import one.
