After various rumors and speculation, Nintendo has confirmed that the new Zelda themed 3DS XL will in fact come to both Europe and North America the same day that A Link Between Worlds launches. Buyers will also be treated to having a download version of A Link Between Worlds included with the special console.
In an announcement video by Eiji Aonuma, the producer of The Legend of Zelda franchise, he explained that it was a tradition to make the Zelda series in gold. This would either be done with a gold game cartridge or a gold system. To carry on the tradition, Aonuma announced the gold and black 3DS XL in celebration of A Link Between Worlds which you can see in the video below.
A Link Between Worlds will launch exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS November 22nd along with the 3DS XL bundle at an estimated $219.99.
