The 2DS is likely to be a big part of Nintendo's marketing this Holiday season; it's the affordable option that can tempt newcomers while they consider releases like Pokémon Sun and Moon. Nintendo of America has now confirmed two new colour designs on the way, which swap the primary colours from front-to-back.

The video below, it seems, gives a behind-the-scenes look at how hardware design is brought together at Nintendo of America. Well, it makes sense - how else to explain the snappily titled New Galaxy Style New Nintendo 3DS XL?

These models are due out in November, have Mario Kart 7 pre-installed and will cost $79.99. That's a good deal by any standards.

Let us know what you think of the new colours in the comments.
