3DS XL gallery
Like it was for everyone else, it was pretty late at night for Nintendo when the news of the 3DS XL came out. And as a result, we all waited until morning for a gallery of official hardware photos not snapped from a video stream.

Get a better look at the 3DS XL in its official North American launch colors in our gallery below. Look at those home, select, and start buttons! They're actual buttons instead of whatever you call the mushy things under the 3DS screen.

The 3DS XL launches August 19, for $199.99.
