A Nintendo Life post reads ‘during Gamescom today Nintendo of Europe has revealed that it will be launching a SNES-themed edition of the New Nintendo 3DS XL on 13th October. This retro-themed system’s outer shell pays tribute to the classic design of the Super Nintendo, while inside the Nintendo 3DS buttons are coloured just like the original system’s controllers’.
