The Hyrule Gold New 3DS XL that has been exclusive to GameStop will be making its Japanese debut this January alongside the release of Hyrule Warriors Legends.
Although the game does not appear to be packaged with the system, Japan's Hyrule Gold 3DS LL will still come with a couple incentives for it. A promotional code with each special New 3DS LL will grant access to the Classic Tunic costume for Link, as well as a fairy decked out in similar fashion.
The costume is not brand new, as it was given away freely as DLC for the original Hyrule Warriors. The fairy, however, is part of the My Fairy feature that may be exclusive to the New 3DS title. Also, she's pretty cute.
Hyrule Warriors Legends and the Hyrule Gold New 3DS LL are both scheduled for a 21st January release in Japan. There is no word yet as to whether these promotions will be made available to anyone outside Japan, but we'll have to see when the game is released elsewhere in March. In the meantime, GameStop is still selling the Hyrule Gold New 3DS XL, sans above bonuses.

I hope GameStop bundles Hyrule Warriors with the 3DS XL or Nintendo does an official. 😻
Because you know, Zelda has not has enough Gold Edition handhelds.
@TimLatshaw Whoa, never knew Nintendo made the 3SD, too!
Its gimmick must be 3SD card slots or something like that!
@TheWPCTraveler it is an SD card that uses 3D storage like on the newer SSD. I wish they could have 3D memory tech in portable storage media used in phones and other devices.
@TheWPCTraveler @Smash_kirby Oh, yuk it up, you two. Just wait until my bastion of storage is complete!
(Thanks for catching the typo!)
I have that one and a LBW's 3DS, didn't care much for the color of this one.
Ouch... I just decided recently to resist the temptetion and don't buy a New 3DS, but this limited edition could really turn my decision upside down XD
Even more so since the game won't be in it, in other words there is the guarancy that there won't be an obligatory Pre-Installed version! (Don't get me wrong, I love digital too, but I like to switch between my 3DS systems and that works badly with pre-installed games >.>;;; )
Meanwhile in Europe...
So is the costume/fairy exclusive to those who buy the special New 3DS? Because if so, then that's a bunch of crap. I shouldn't be punished for buying a New 3DS early by being told I can't have certain content in a game, especially when a part of said content was given away for free on the Wii U.
This model was already released stateside as a GameStop exclusive was it not? I sold Triforce Heroes because the game was rubbish after 3 hours but I kept my grubby hands on this beautiful specimen
Hm.. I think I still prefer my Majora's Mask gold 3DS.
This is the version I have and I love the design, but I also love that it is a lot less prone to showing off fingerprints and smudges then the standard edition colors.
@Tsurii Fair enough, but even if the costume and fairy are sold together for $.99, like the pre-order costume sets, I'd still be paying for something that was free for the Wii U version. Not that I'll lose any sleep over doing so, but I'll be ever-so-slightly-mad.
On the other hand, it might become a retailer pre-order exclusive for us.
It will be mine... oh yes... it will be mine.
Party on Wayne.
Looks at Fairy Link Nice nod to Link's original transformation.
These special editions no longer feel special anymore. There have already been at least three different Zelda themed 3DS consoles released and the novelty really has worn off now.
I've played Hyrule Warriors to death on Wii U now so definitely won't be getting Legends, especially since the gameplay is the same and it's on a less powerful console, feels a bit wrong to me.
Party on Garth!
Give that Link costume pink hair and I'll think about it.
I don't understand how people can complain about this 3DS just because it's gold... like, lol...
My gf has the MM gold edition and I have this one. We both love it to death.
