Nintendo announced this morning the Yoshi Edition 3DS XL is coming to North America to launch alongside Yoshi’s New Island on March 14. The special edition was leaked last month and we knew the folks in Europe were getting the green handheld, so this is a pleasant surprise for those of us in NA. The Yoshi Edition features sort of a puke green color, with Yoshi on the front. According to the press release from Nintendo, “a series of cute Yoshi eggs are on the back.”
I might be in the minority here, but I love the way this beast looks. The white hinge leads me to believe the face plate is also white, which gets me happy in the pantaloons. Sadly, the Yoshi Edition 3DS XL does not include Yoshi’s New Island. Either way, I’m looking forward to picking up both the system and game.
This delightful handheld has the MSRP of $199.99 and you can check out the latest trailer for Yoshi’s New Island below.
