Not content with offering the Switch, the SNES Classic, and the 2DS XL, the Japanese company made a decision to bring a SNES-themed 3DS XL to the U.S. as well this year. Not when you can get a New 3DS XL painted to look like a Super Nintendo. When Analogue's Super NT is released early next year, the unedited game - now dubbed Super Turrican: Director's Cut - will be included with every console, along with an SNES-style cartridge box. Nintendo 3DS XL will play all the games of the Nintendo DS games, but those games will not appear in 3D. We can't forget the Super Mario World lime green 3DS and for Metroid fans, there was a special 3DS for you as well. However, as with other New 3DS XL units, you must purchase a separate AC adapter. The bigger issue for Nintendo is selling this $200 3DS XL when the 2DS XL only costs $150.

For some added context, Nintendo released a Super Famicom-themed New 3DS XL in Japan back in April 2016.
