If you're jnto the whole ips screen vs tn screens I'm fairly certain I have dual tn, but it does seem like that's about all their making for this special release and it's certainly all they're doing for the 2ds so I say just go for it. It's hard to even tell the difference so it doesn't really matter anyway.
The next thing I'll make clear is it doesn't include the game Samus Returns or an ac adapter. The latter omission is still ridiculous, but I'm not sure why anyone would assume it would just include a completely free new release game; it's just not happening. Be sure to choose the version that includes the cheap ac adapter Amazon offers. Works like a charm.
Another reason I'm glad I went with this version is how neat the 3D is. I admit it took me a day or two of playing for my eyes to truly adjust but once they did it was really quite neat. Of course you can turn the 3D off at any time and sometimes I just like seeing the regular display.
Finally if you're debating as I was between the 3dsxl Samus edition or just getting a 2ds to save money I would encourage you to think of the quality of the builds. Having used a friend's 2ds it is very light and sort of feels like a toy. This is perfect for use on the go and it's even a little smaller and lighter. But if you're like me and are an adult collector and gamer who won't put this thing in his pocket or take it everywhere anyway, then the bump in quality materials and the beautiful Samus armor design is well worth the extra 50. Indeed, I believe that years from now this special edition will Appreciate in value and Metroid fans who missed it will be searching this one out!
P.S.A. Don't forget to purchase the Nintendo Hori screen protectors. They work beautifully and help this slightly OCD gamer rest a little easier.
This is by far the best looking 3DS in my opinion and I am glad to own one. The one downside I have is that it did not come with a SD card installed and I had to purchase one.
