Ok, I know I want one…who’s with me?
And now for something that will bring drool, a smile and maybe even something else to the face of a lot of gamers, straight from Japan. Releasing in mid April for the Japanese market will be this absolutely sublime looking 3DS XL themed to look like a Super Nintendo, or Super Famicom as it was known in Japan.
How good does this look? If you want to get your mitts on it, be prepared to shell out ¥21,600 and you also get a 4GB memory card with it. Now the important question, how can you get one? Head to Nintendo’s website via this handy link. No news as yet whether it will come to West 🙁 But let’s have one more look at that sexy 3DS XL…
Continuing with the celebrations for Mega Man’s anniversary this year, an amazing new statue has been marked for release celebrating the release of Mega Man X on the Super Nintendo 20 years ago. The statue will be featuring both Mega Man X and Mega Man in heroic poses measuring in at 10 inches tall.
Not leaving Mega Man out of it who first showed up on the SNES back on December 17 1993. Other features about the statue like the numbering plate and other tweaks will be finalised in a few weeks before its release.
