Good news for North American New Nintendo 2DS XL fans: you won’t have one color to choose from anymore. Today’s Nintendo Direct confirmed that the orange/white New 2DS XL will launch in the States on October 6th for $149.99 USD.

Meanwhile in the Japan Direct, two additional colors were announced. An all-white New 2DS XL and green/black system will launch in Japan on October 5th.

The Nintendo Direct also confirmed that a Pokeball Edition of the New 2DS XL will launch on November 3rd.
