In a bit of a surprising move Amazon has opened pre-orders on a New Nintendo 3DS XL - Super NES Edition in North America, which hasn't (at the time of writing) been revealed by Nintendo [Update: Nintendo of America has now re-tweeted an official announcement by Amazon].

Pre-orders on both Amazon US and Amazon Canada give a release date of 27th November, with box art showing that Super Mario Kart is pre-installed on the device. An equivalent arrived with the relevant regional design in Europe recently, but there'd been little indication that Nintendo of America was planning to follow suit.
