Europe gets a stunning Limited Edition Zelda 3DS bundle

Odds are the thing holding you back from a 3DS purchase isn’t a Limited Edition version of the handheld, but just in case it was Nintendo has quite the offer for you. It’s the new Limited Edition 25th Anniversary Zelda 3DS, and it's absolutely stunning. It's also limited to Europe – sorry, rest of the world. You'll just have to settle for playing a handful of games on your non-Limited Edition Zelda 3DS like a bunch of suckers.

The handheld will come with the awesome, fancy handheld, a special sleeve (which you'll immediately throw away in favor of using a proper case), and, obviously, a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. The Limited Edition 25th Anniversary Zelda 3DS should start arriving on European shelves on November 25, and while pricing details haven't been confirmed just yet, we're expecting it will fall in line with the other bundles released so far. Unless, of course, Nintendo decides they want to charge a premium for it because it's so damn sexy - a move we'd understand completely. As it is sexy. There are a few more pictures of the system below that should make you either excited (if you live in Europe) or jealous (if you live anywhere else).

We're reaching out to Nintendo (see: begging) to see if there's a chance of this beauty coming stateside, but, as of now, it's limited to a European release. We'll be sure to keep you posted.

    That's a nice and classy 3DS skin. I always hate the garish skins.

    I learned my lesson with the DSi, that I should be waiting for bundles, but seriously?! I'm jealous of European gamers now who have waited. Hopefully something cool comes to the U.S. soon, or I'm just going to get the black/white one.

    Looks okay but i see it does not have the Joystick Add On. Im holding out till they put a version that has the Extra Joystick built in.

    This is probably the sexiest Special Edition console I've ever, ever seen. I'd trade my soul just to hang that in a class case.
  • Strangleme - November 8, 2011 1:41 p.m.

    I would definitely get this if it came to thre U.S.!!

    I am for once irritated. I decided to buy my 3DS last month because I thought "hey, it’s near the end of the year, it’s not like they're going to release a special edition Zelda" And they do... :'(

    NNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I would've totally bought this too!! Even knowing that Nintendo is going to make a revised 3DS with dual analogs and despite the fact that I already have one!!!!

    This is exactly what I had in mind when I held out at the initial launch, but after all the 3DS' woes, like that horrid slide pad attachment, not even this Zelda pack is looking to great. Maybe I'll get it if we have some more info on the "new" 3DS Zelda before it comes stateside.

    About time we got SOMETHING. The other design looked better though.
  • Kentastic84 - November 8, 2011 11:56 a.m.

    Another reason to regret buying my 3DS at launch...
  • gamebrain8505 - November 8, 2011 12:15 p.m.

    I feel your pain, brother.
  • codystovall - November 8, 2011 1:32 p.m.

    They just keep comin.
  • Hydrohs - November 8, 2011 11:41 a.m.

    Despite already having a 3DS I may buy this if NoA does release it.
  • Ultimadrago - November 8, 2011 11:32 a.m.

    Well, we Americans get some stuff that Europeans don't to be fair... On another note, is it bad that this specific 3DS has been the biggest "pro" I have ever seen in the 3DS?
  • bigwill1221 - November 8, 2011 11:32 a.m.

    U.s. the crappiest looking consoles forever T_T...

    Damn you Europeans and your awesome 3DS! *shakes fist*
