Black 3DS XL system releasing in August

Orange may be the new black for Netflix, but for Nintendo and its 3DS system, black is the way to go. The company today confirmed the new color for the 3DS XL.

Starting August 11, the black version of the popular handheld system will be available for purchase. If that date seems to ring a bell, that's because that is also the same day Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, an adventure game that takes place in the dreaming mind of Luigi, releases.

With this latest addition, the 3DS is now available in four distinct colors: blue, red, pink, and the just announced black.
