Galaxy 3DS.jpg

Yesterday we had the somewhat random reveal of the 'New Galaxy Style' New Nintendo 3DS XL for North America. It came out of nowhere, frankly, and thematically it seems rather lacking in context - in our dreams there'll be a Super Mario Galaxy port announced in this week's 3DS Nintendo Direct, but we're not counting on it.

In any case, it's out this week and should be popping up in North American stores for $199.99. There are a couple of options for pre-orders, too - has a listing, but it's stating 1 to 2 months for delivery at the time of writing.

On a happier note GameStop has also opened pre-orders, at $199.99, with a release date of 2nd September (Friday). You can place your orders right here.

At the time of writing we're not seeing any listings yet on the likes of Walmart, Target and Toys 'R' Us.

Are you planning to grab one of these? Are you in Europe and hoping it'll be announced for the region in this week's Nintendo Direct? Let us know in the comments.
