This New Metroid: Samus Returns 3DS XL is Red Hot

Metroid fans were excited by the E3 news that they would not only be getting Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch, but an eagerly anticipated 2D version called Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS. And just to pander to the Samus fans, Nintendo is releasing a special themed 3DS XL at the same time as the new game.

Nintendo tweeted out the reveal along with the September 15 release date. Unfortunately, no price was attached, but recent themed 3DS units ran about $199.99.

The unit appears to be the same as the base model in terms of specs, but does sport the fire red of Samus' suit in the Metroid games. If you need a new XL, watch for the pre-orders to begins, likely in the next few days. Of, course, you may want to pre-order the Metroid amiibo while you are at it, if you want to get the full game experience, that is.
