Japan is getting yet another new 3DS XL design, leaving us jealous and rather envious. As you can see from the above image, the design is black with a gold Charizard trim and a Flamethrower attack proceeding from the front of the console, to the back.
The Pikachu-themed 3DS XL that was announced months ago has since been confirmed for Europe, but no other regions (indulging Australia) has been announced as of yet. Currently, the new Charizard-themed 3DS XL has only been confirmed for Japan.
