Nintendo takes to Twitter for surprise announcement of galactic-themed 3DS XL

TODO alt text

A new color scheme for the New 3DS XL (that's "new" with a capital "N") will be arriving on store shelves this week. It's a new-new situation! A two-new for the price of one! Okay, I'll stop.

The galactic-themed handheld was announced today via Twitter, with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime saying that they've already been shipped and should arrive on store shelves this week.

Like the other New 3DS XL models, the out of this world version (I'm so sorry) will sell for $200. A European release has not been announced.
