New Nintendo 3DS XL Nintendo of America

Nintendo had one more hardware announcement in its pocket for today: an Amazon-exclusive New Nintendo 3DS XL. The online-only variant of the company’s flagship portable comes in lime green and bundled with a copy of SNES classic Super Mario World.

Why is it lime green? Perhaps in a nod to Mario’s green dinosaur pal, T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas. But as you can see in the packaging image below, the New Nintendo 3DS XL ins’t quite Yoshi green.

What really makes the Amazon-exclusive hardware compelling is its pre-installed game. Super Mario World is one of the SNES Virtual Console games that’s playable only on New Nintendo 3DS hardware. Super Mario World costs $7.99 from Nintendo’s 3DS eShop.

If a chance to play Super Mario World again is a good enough argument for you, the lime green New Nintendo 3DS XL is available now from Amazon for $199.99.
