The clamshell design is in the distinctive red and white associated with Poké Balls, with a slight raised centre on the cover, to properly emulate a Poké Ball despite the console being oblong and not in the shape of an actual ball. It's coming out in the United States on November 3 for an undisclosed price, though it'll probably be the same $150 / £130 / AU$200 you'd pay for the vanilla version today.

Nintendo has a new version of its 2DS XL dual-screen folding handheld game system.

The announcement of the New 2DS XL Pokeball Edition kicked off the Nintendo Direct presentation, alongside a selection of new Pokemon announcements including pre-order bonuses for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and the announcement of two new Ultra Beasts, UB Burst and and UB Assembly. Oh, and if you're in Japan, you get arguably the better option: A Pikachu edition of the 2DS XL instead.
