Those who place an order can expect to receive their units two weeks after the Europe release on November 27. To sweeten the deal, Nintendo will be throwing in a download code for everyone’s favorite racing game Super Mario Kart.

This won’t be the first time Nintendo dressed the 3DS up in a limited skin. They also released a Super Famicom inspired variant in Japan back in March last year. There was also a retro NES version of the 3DS XL released back in 2014. We can’t forget the Super Mario World lime green 3DS and for Metroid fans, there was a special 3DS for you as well.

The unit looks beautiful and like the system, it is modeled after will probably move swiftly off shelves. Nintendo has definitely seemed to tap a special place in gamers hearts with this retro movement. So don’t sleep like folks did on the SNES Classix pre-order, you better pre-order your SNES 3DS XL not now, BUT RIGHT NOW.
