Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition is an Amazon exclusive

The reskinned 3DS XL is an Amazon exclusive that hits on Nov. 27 for $199 -- and you can preorder it now.

New Nintendo 3DS XL SNES Edition

Can't get your hands on the SNES Classic? Consider picking up a Nintendo 3DS XL instead.

That's Nintendo's latest pitch to retro-hungry gamers. A version of the New Nintendo 3DS XL portable with a Super Nintendo paint job is now available for preorder exclusively on Amazon for $199. It appears a copy of the SNES-era Super Mario Kart is thrown in for good measure, too. According to the product page, it will be released on Nov. 27.

Before you click that preorder button, though, just keep one thing in mind: If you can live without the SNES exterior, you'd be better off getting the New Nintendo 2DS XL for $149, and investing the price difference in five or six 2DS/3DS-compatible classic Super Nintendo games, many of which go for $7.99 each.

Why the 2DS/3DS is Nintendo's best retro console: The latest 2DS and 3DS portables are still the best way to play your old favorites.
