If you hadn’t heard, the Nintendo 3DS got an official release date of February 26th in Japan, and it’s going to cost quite a bit. As soon as the announcement broke, revealing the price, gamers in Japan immediately began saving, even if they weren’t consciously aware of it. But now, it looks like there may be something else to buy between then and now: the Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi LL edition. Which means the Wii isn’t getting all the anniversary love.
The brand new Nintendo Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi LL edition was announced last night, but Nintendo officially unveiled an image of the mobile gaming console today. And, just as we should have expected, it’s a bright red version, featuring images from the game right on the front. The DSi LL features the three graphics on the front, while an even more special Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary DSi also broke cover, which is red too, and featuring a little Mario jumping over the camera.
If you’re in Japan, then you’re in luck. The DSi LL (pictured above) will be made available on October 28th, and cost about 18,000 yen (or about $215). The smaller DSi will be available on the same day, cost 14,800 yen ($177), and be available for purchase from 7-Elevens, or its online retailer. You can see the special edition DSi in the gallery below.
