The New Nintendo 3DS box is a thing of beauty

The recently revealed New Nintendo 3DS has been a controversial topic the past few days with many debating if Nintendo are abandoning existing consumers by bringing exclusive games to the new platform starting off with Xenoblade Chronicles. We’re personally fans of the change and love the additions.

Below are the box of the normal version of the new 3DS, the XL version will have similar boxes.

Another plus point for the New Nintendo 3DS is the newly revealed box which looks pretty great and is a much welcome departure from the static boxes of old. You have to admit, the new two tone design does look amazing, which can be further customized using faceplates.

The standard New Nintendo 3DS will retail for 16,000 yen while the New Nintendo 3DS XL will retail for 18,800 yen. Both versions hit stores in Japan October 11th. I’m certainly on board the New Nintendo 3DS hype train, are you? Let us know your thoughts on the updated console and its new box in the comments below.
