I'm going to get the New Black 3DS XL, whenever I get the money. It may not be at launch. I would love to have the regular sized New 3DS with the faceplates but, I'm not holding hope for it to come stateside. I'd love to get the Majora's Mask Edition but, it seems like that's an uphill battle.

Lucked into a Majora's Mask edition through Best Buy after being minutes late for Gamestop.

Got a Majora's Mask edition pre-ordered through Best Buy. I've made it my life's goal to get all of these special Zelda-themed hardware bundles.

Monsutā Hantā for me! Pre-ordered and paid in full!

I like the fact that it's still going to be somewhat unique because you guys aren't getting the blue.

Not buying at all, for the time being. Gonna hold off on getting fancy new hardware that I won't use much. MM3D is the only game coming out on it that I'm interested in playing soon, and I'd honestly like to wait a few more years before replaying that and Ocarina of Time so that I forget more about them from my previous playthroughs. Plus, I have a hunch that someday those remakes will have console versions.

A shiny console version of Ocarina would be pretty nice.

Not getting it at all. Just not enough bang for my buck.

Nabbed a Majora's Mask pre-order without any real trouble. Stoked.

Not buying at all. Already own the Zelda 3ds xl limited version. None of the current 3ds xls are special enough to give up my current 3ds xl. Add in Nintendo's screwed up decisions to hide the sd card slot and go the elcheapo route by not including an ac adapter, I feel they don't deserve my hard earned money as far as the 'new' 3ds xl is concerned.

Crossing my fingers for regular New 3DS at the moment.

Majora's Mask edition pre-ordered.
Posted: 01/21/15, 02:40:29
I had a chance to get the Majora's Mask one, but I passed on it because I typically don't like limited edition handhelds. I like the sleek look of New Black and that's the one I am getting.

Not sure if new black or new red...
Posted: 01/21/15, 03:10:57
Not buying at all*

*I'll probably buy if some game I really want in the future comes out and is a New 3DS exclusive, but I don't anticipate that happening.

Definitely holding off. I wanted the non-XL this time, so I might wait to see if we get it. If we don't, I'll still wait, as the initial colors are butt ugly. I would probably get one, though, if they offered white, or something a little more interesting in hue.

i didn't see the direct till later in the day... i missed the pre order majora boat

Maybe they will have something more interesting later in the year.... Majora's Mask is not my fav. zelda game anyways... Nintendo's site still says "pre orders unavailable" so who knows. I think it's stupid that things sell out this fast - people have lives or work during the day... (not to say that you lucky pre order people don't have lives but you know what I mean"..

Yeah, I absolutely had to make special arrangements to watch the Direct that day and had to leave for an early lunch to make it to a Gamestop to pre-order. Even with a life, it took extra effort which is frankly annoying.

I've never purchased the XL of any of the DS's. But I was thinking to do so this time regardless. I'm not terribly fond of any of the colour choices, but I'm likely going to wait on buying the New 3DS till a bit down the road aside from that. I've got to try to get some money stashed away to do so... probably without my wife knowing.

I was going to ask you how you got a unit then I remembered you're Australian...


I would get the red since it's my favorite color.
