The bundles are also coming with a game many will be poké-ing into.

The 2DS is getting the transparent treatment with two new 2DS designs; Transparent Red and Transparent Blue.

The consoles themselves are due out November 7, while bundles with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are coming November 28. The 2DS units themselves will retail for £89.99 while the bundles will be £114.99. Worth noting, the games are digital copies on a 4 GB SD card included, they are not cartridge copies.

This isn't the first time Nintendo has made a transparent system, both the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance got the clear design over their lifespans.

My first video game system was the clear Gameboy.
I'd love to buy this for my son and daughter as their first, but I'd also like to just give them my old 3DS and XL when I buy the "new 3DS"
By the way, do we know if the "New 3DS" plays DS cartridges?

The first Nintendo system I ever owned was a translucent purple Game Boy Color. If they did this style with a New 3DS XL I'd absolutely buy one.

Wow transparent handhelds... that brings back memories. These almost feel more nostalgic than the NES themed XL.

The transparent designs weren't always my favourites, but I'd be curious to see how these actually look in person.

Blue transparent 2DS + the Monster Hunter new XL they were showing at TGS = hnnnnnrg
