Still Available for Pre-Order for $219!,
This review is from: Nintendo 3DS XL Gold/Black - Limited Edition Bundle with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (Video Game)
Edit: The unit already has a DEAD PIXEL :(
[Just to let fans know - THIS IS STILL AVAILABLE from retail stores! Don't waste your money on marketplace sellers just yet.]
It's a 3DS XL and it's Zelda - does anything else matter? Every piece of Zelda merchandise I've ever owned has been top quality, and I don't expect this to be any different. With that said, I have seen the hands-on video of the unit making the rounds, and it looks fantastic! I really like that the inside is gold instead of just black (a la that stupid black "Zelda" Wii U), and the gold lettering on the buttons is a nice touch. The way they did the light Triforce on the front and the dark Triforce on the back is so clever. They even moved the informational text on the bottom to the side so it doesn't interfere with the Triforce. Good job, Nintendo!
But alas, it looks like the stylus isn't gold :(
The gold finish is matte, not shiny :)
Also, the bundle comes with a digital copy of the game, not a physical copy.
Comes with a 4GB memory card.

Personally, I like the matte finish. Shiny would collect so many fingerprints, which I can't stand.

I kind of like the more subdued understated and elegant aesthetic anyway. Glossy electronics just isn't a good idea.

This is BS. The soft paint they use for the XL systems doesn't scratch or rub off more easily - or at all. Quit just saying things. This is why people become ignorant, from reading lies online.

do you need to show BB or T an ad for the match? I looked at W's website, and don't see this price.

Yeah i'm not seeing any 199.96 Zelda bundles online or in any ads. I called target and the employee said they would only price match if walmart.com showed them in stock at one of the local stores.

The bundle was in the holiday prep ad with two large iPads on the front. Good until today. Ads are also in store. Walmart had midnight release Thursday night.

This review was very helpful to me, because today, Nov. 28th, I was able to purchase the item at an EB Games here in Canada for $219! Thank you!

Hi, I was hoping you could help me with a question I have regarding the local wireless multi player on a Nintendo 3ds XL. If a friend and I each have our own system and we are in the same room, does a wifi (internet) connection have to be available for our two systems to connect?
