Europeans Can Now Pre-Order a New Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition

Only two retailers right now.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System edition of the New Nintendo 3DS XL, announced last month, is now available for pre-order for those living in Europe.

Currently, the only places to pre-order right now are through Amazon UK and Toys R Us. Amazon UK has the system listed at its original retail price of £179.99, while Toys R Us is selling for £5 cheaper.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition does everything a New Nintendo 3DS XL can normally do, such as offering extra buttons and amiibo support, but features the design of the Japanese and European SNES. North America received a very different looking SNES when it first released, featuring a more boxy shape with different shades of purple.

The system launches Oct. 13 and is only available in Europe, as there are no plans for a North American release. The nostalgic-themed 3DS releases two weeks after Nintendo’s other retro console, the SNES Classic Edition, on Sept. 29.
