The game behind it. If you are not interested into LL, there is this Fire Emblem alternative




No announcements for a release of the Robot Wars UX 3DS XL outside Japan yet.

The Fire Emblem bundle will be probably released during the Fire Emblem launch in North America on February 4th.

The thing about limited edition in Japan with the handhelds and such for the most part if its a nice one. The chances of you finding it brand new in a store far after launch is slim to none.

Is that casing transparent? I can't tell if it's some kind of art on the bottom or the internals I'm seeing.

Regardless, a very pretty device. Sucks it'll never be seen outside of you-know-where.

SRT with licenses involved have never made here in the West, what's surprising about this.
If someone would just crack the 3DS region lock I would buy this in a heartbeat. As it is, I want to be able to buy and play games here and not have to import everything, so I'll have to pass at the moment. If I get SRW UX though I'll definitely have to see if I can snag one of these to play it on.

Come on MAN it's a moon base/city!!!!!

This HAS to be mine. I need it so bad its not even funny. I have honestly never felt this way about a device in my entire life.

It's supposed to be an aerial view of a city with buildings and stuff...a map of a mission in SRW.

The Fire Emblem system looks like a cheap rub on sticker when compared to the SRW masterpiece. They have really outdone themselves. It's a work of art.

As cool as I thought the fire emblem one was, Id have to agree here. Since thats a crazy amount of detail esp with the back side.

I'm not familiar with the game series, but I think it would've looked more interesting with the city view on the top lid. Now I feel like the best part is sort of hidden.

They should copy this for some (Western?) strategy game themed limited edition.

The point is when you open the 3DS, the top part is a space map, and the bottom part is an asteroid map. It goes together.

Id imagine this one is going to get an INSANE resale value, so better move fast if you want one for yourself. As all the resellers are currently licking their lips at this golden goose thats for sure.

This is another reason why region locking is so shit. I used to love buying exclusive GBA/DS models from Japan.

You keep fighting the good fight.
Sure I am ;) . And hey, that Fire Emblem: Awakening Nintendo 3DS bundle was sold in Japan in very limited quantities, and sold exclusively through Ninty´s website. This one is sold the normal way.

The Animal Crossing XL is my favorite 3DS design but this is a very close second, and that's only because I prefer white DS's over black ones.

Only difference is that the AC XL actually has a chance of coming over to the west (moreso after the FE bundle announcement) ;)
