But, apparently the new models will come in some VERY colorful packaging when they release.

New photos have appears to show what the packaging for the upcoming New Nintendo 3DS will look like, and compared to the boxes for previous Nintendo consoles, these ones appear to be extremely colorful. The packaging for the regular-sized New Nintendo 3DS is set against an eclectic background that shows off the various customizable faceplates that can be swapped out on the front and back of the New Nintendo 3DS, while the box for the XL-sized system is much more muted and like typical Nintendo packaging.
