Nintendo 3DS XL - Gold and Black with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
One of the best things for my Zelda collection
This is a really great limited-edition console I have ever got. I like that there is a triforce on it and that since its limited-edition, I feel special when I play it. I would recommend this to anyone and I feel like everyone should play Zelda.
3DS XL is a fantastic system.
I bought a grey/black 3DS back in February 2011; one of the original launch systems. It's great. My son and I have enjoyed it ever since. But my son is a Zelda fanatic, so as a gift I bought him the Link Between Worlds 3DS XL edition. It's amazing. I find myself playing it, too. Functionally, it's the same as any 3DS of any size and color, but the fit and finish of the XL is far and away superior to the original size. It's more comfortable in the hands, the buttons (under the touch screen) are easier to manipulate, the stylus is in a better place, it comes with a more appropriate-capacity SD card, and it doesn't look like it has three layers when you look at it closed from the side. Specific to the Zelda edition, the gold theme is very attractive. And of course the inclusion of the game itself is great. New from retail, A Link Between Worlds is typically $35-40. A regular-color 3DS XL is typically $200. So the savings of this bundle is also appealing. I would highly recommend a 3DS XL to any one looking for a portable gaming console, and I'd emphatically recommend this Zelda edition to any long-time Nintendo or Zelda fan.
The 3DS I have been waiting for
Zelda special edition products continue to deliver on multiple levels. The increased size from the previous standard model is a winner. Additionally the quality of the gold finish and tri-force on the product is top notch. The addition of a 4GB SD Card and digital copy of A link between worlds only increases the economic value of the deal. This product compliments ones childhood by bringing back all those games we have come to love over the years while integrating new chapters that are refreshing in a familiar way.
A good, reliable system with great exclusives. The games i played so far are great. A good system to pick up if your in the market for a system.
The cons you may have heard aren't really cons.
i heard many people saying that the idea of renting items in the game was bad. and in your first play through it may seem so. but during hero mode, you find a challenge never before available in a zelda game. in the older games you always had the items even after death. but now dying in hero mode wont be so easily overlooked. death means loss of your items making it so your skills are that much more important. the system itself is amazing. it didnt get a 10 for value only because the game is a download, so i had to wait 2 hours before actually getting to play it.
Tons of fun
Well I finally decided to buy a 3ds after a couple of my friends got ones and I saw them playing the new Pokémon games. And I have to say it was a good idea to buy it. And it was also completely worth it to buy the special edition XL. Why? Because: 1. The design is pretty cool.
2. The XL has a longer battery life that the normal 3ds. 3. The larger screens are truly worth more money. 4. It comes with A Link Between Worlds but it is only a game which I wouldn't prefer but is fine just the same. So even though it is no PS4 or Xbox one it is still a lot of fun and I'm very satisfied with it.
EXCELLENT COLORS & DESIGNS.
1st off, I'm a HUGE fan of gold colors and this system hits the jackpot. I thought it's gonna be glossy finish like how they've did to pokemon X & Y bundle, but it isn't. It's matte finish which I absolutely love (SAY NO TO FINGERPRINTS). Overall, I'm impress with my purchase.
Nothing but value
This is such a beautiful console, I would recommend it to everyone who is thinking of getting a 3DS XL. Link between worlds is phenomenal, and what a better way to celebrate it, other than a shiny gold console.
An unbelievable product!
This is a great buy if your a true fan of Zelda series! You will be amazed the moment your playing your 3DS system!
Absolutely stunning! Great deal
No pictures or videos on the web do this console justice. You really have to see it in person. The design is so elegant even my apple fanboy brother had to admit it was gorgeous. The game is extremely fun and I've only begun playing. I don't get the big fuss about the download. The game plays just the same.
