What might be one of gaming's worst kept secrets in recent weeks has finally been made official: an all black version of the Nintendo's fun-sized 3DS XL is indeed coming to the North America.

It'll be out on August 11th in the US, the same day as Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Nintendo tells us.

Most saw this coming, thanks to leaked circulars that has advertised an all black iteration of the hardware for weeks now. Anyhow, this is certainly good news for those who have not been fond of the color choices thus far.

Though the one color that discerning 3DS fans want the most is an all white system, but Nintendo has made it clear that it ain't happening anytime soon. With the reason given that white colored hardware doesn't sell in North America.

3DS XL

Re-releasing your hardware with just a slight physical upgrade is not a new thing; the practice dates back to the days of the Atari 2600 and the Intellivision. Not much has changed with modern day gaming – just ask Nintendo, who have become famous (infamous?) for updating their systems without really adding any new features, particularly their handhelds. The 3DS is the latest handheld to fall victim to the upgrade gods, this time it's been super-sized, and re-branded as the 3DS XL.

When the 3DS was released last March, it was not without its flaws, but I doubt most people thought, "you know what's really wrong here, it's too small." Yet, somehow, Nintendo managed to make their 3DS bigger, and turn it into a more enjoyable version of itself with the 3DS XL.
