Nintendo announces new Zelda-themed 3DS
November 8, 2011

Ah, Nintendo. Forever amused, it seems, by toying with our flawless and discerning sense of style. No other company pumps out products in so many different colour variations quite like they do, and, seemingly unsatisfied with last month’s announcement of Coral Pink and Ice White 3DS systems, they’ve been at it again.

In their insatiable quest for variety, Nintendo announced today that they will be launching a new, Zelda-themed 3DS system to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of that most heralded of franchises. Adorned with the same black plastic as the Cosmos Black model, the Limited Edition bundle also sports a number of aesthetic changes.

The most obvious one can be seen on the front of the console: a pretty, gold decal print which features the Winged Triforce, Link’s ocarina and what appears to be Sheik’s harp. The visual feast continues when the console is opened up; a gold 3D Slider and a gold trim on the A, B, X and Y buttons, as well as the D-Pad, round off a rather tasty looking SKU. The Circle Pad, however, remains gray.

Details are scarce as of now, but the Limited Edition console will release on November 25th in Europe, and will come bundled with a copy of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

Monster Hunter G to get its own Classic Controller and MH3 demo

Capcom have announced that the Wii port of the PS2 game, Monster Hunter G, will come bundled with its own, exclusive Classic Controller.
What’s more, the disc will also contain a demo of the highly anticipated Monster Hunter 3.

What does all this mean? Well, to us Brits, not a lot when you consider that Monster Hunter G might not even see the light of day over here, but it does mean that this game will sell like crazy over in Japan.

And did we mention that that controller is postively shagadelic?
