A lucky few European Club Nintendo members have been chosen for the opportunity to purchase the New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition before its official launch in Europe (thanks to L~A for the info).
The email sent to those chosen few reads:
Would you like to get your hands on New Nintendo 3DS before the European launch?
Dear Nintendo fan,
We’d like to thank you, one of our most loyal customers, for all your support. To show our appreciation, we’re offering you the chance to purchase New Nintendo 3DS now, and get it before the official European launch!
New Nintendo 3DS will be coming to Europe in 2015, bringing new customisation options, new speed, new controls, new 3D viewing and a whole new handheld gaming experience! And with this offer, you can be one of the first players in Europe to own the new system!
The New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition bundle
For a limited time only, we’re giving you the opportunity to purchase our special New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Edition bundle – that includes exclusive Ambassador Cover Plates (which won’t be available anywhere else), a charging cradle, and a set of Super Smash Bros. cover plates, too! If you’d like to purchase it, you only have until 23:59 (UK time) on January 12th 2015 to take advantage of this offer.
Here’s what’s in the special bundle:
New Nintendo 3DS (White) which comes with an exclusive Ambassador Edition Cover Plate (Back), New Nintendo 3DS stylus, 4 GB microSDHC memory card, AR Cards, Quick-Start Guide, Operations Manual.
The exclusive Ambassador Edition Cover Plate (Front).
Super Smash Bros. Cover Plates (Front and Back).
Charging cradle (White).
The set costs 199.99€ (205€ with shipping) and will be available for purchase until January 12th. Buyers should receive it around January 23rd. I must admit, this special set looks quite excellent. If the offer makes it to North America, I certainly wouldn’t mind buying it myself.
If you happen to live in Europe, you can read the Terms of Sale on the official site here.
