Three new Mario-themed 3DS XLs on the horizon ... in China
Nintendo created a joint venture over in China with a company dubbed iQue, and its latest products are those snazzy, Mario/Mario Kart 7 themed 3DS XL models you can see in the header. They are officially known as Mario White, Mario Silver, and the limited Mario Red and Gold.
Not only do these look super cool, but they also come preloaded with both Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. That's one heck of a deal, though these puppies probably won't see the light of day in the West. First Charizard, now these...
These will launch in December, but the press release says nothing about the price.
What do you g1s think? Should Nintendo make an effort to bring out some fancier 3DS models stateside? Or are you happy with what we've got? Let us know in the comments!

Why does it always seem like the US never gets any of these cool special editions. I really want the Charizard 3DS that's being released in Japan but it doesn't look like I'll be able to get one :(
well this has to be for right now. I've used to live in china and ever since I moved I've completely forgotten my mandarin. I also remember getting a hacked genesis console in China as well. not sure where it went though.......
Yes but you see in a lot of cases theirs certain game consoles or handhelds that are exclusive in the Asia Region and in some cases like the Pokemon 3DS XL's are Limited in a very short amount of time....Yes I'm a Nerd
Those look pretty damn cool! But wait a tic...First news that the PS3 is going to come to China soon and now this!? Does this mean that Chinese Gamers can finally play games Legally!? O-o This has to be one of those moments that make you think"Their is a God" cuz holy hell that's awesome!
I know, I almost used "pinyin" simply for the alliteration but that would have been even more inaccurate. It wanted to write Mandarin, but since Mandarin and Cantonese are written the same I figured I'd go for a catch-all rather than a 50/50 chance of being wrong. :P
The one of the left is the only one that looks appealing to me. And for the record there's no launguage called Chinese.
arent a ton of electronics in america made in china?
The first time I have ever wanted an electronic from China.
That red one with the Mario/Luigi emblem looks amazing.... Too bad importing that would probably be expensive.
Wait ... I tought the only thing Nintendo had in China was that iQue n64 controller / consoles thing because of the high piracy in China ?
Is this a special 3DS version that needs the games to be loaded at the game store through a special server connection like that n64 iQue player or ?
