Yoshi's New Island 3DS XL

Once again, Nintendo is releasing a custom handheld. This time, it’s the Yoshi’s New Island 3DS XL. Look at it! It’s so nice and green! And it even has Yoshi running on it, having unknowingly laid an egg. Or maybe the egg’s just floating behind him as they do in these games. Whatever.

It should be noted that this isn’t a hardware-and-game bundle. The Yoshi’s New Island 3DS XL, which is priced at $199.99, only includes the handheld, with the game being sold separately. That’s kind of a weird route to go in, but then again, Nintendo likes to do weird things sometimes.

Of course, if you already own a 3DS or 3DS XL and don’t want one with Mario’s dinosaur buddy stamped right on it, you can always purchase a standalone physical or digital version of Yoshi’s New Island for $39.99. The game and the newest 3DS XL model will launch on March 14.
