Nintendo released the Super Mario Black/White Edition New 3DS this week in celebration of Black Friday and the holiday season. Unboxing videos for both versions can be found below.

Media Create reported that Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon sold 1.591 million copies in its first three days in Japan. Additional information from the sales tracker reveals that Sun sold 808,000 copies while Moon was at 783,000 units.

If you count the Double Pack which also sold 151,000 units (containing two games in each), the overall total is 1.893 million. That puts Pokemon Sun/Moon at the same scale as X/Y, which sold 1.867 million in first week without the Double Pack. Both also have the relatively same sell-through rate of about 80 percent.

Folks are starting to get their hands on the Super Mario Edition New 3DS that hit store shelves today. Find some photos of the black unit below.

Update 2: Walmart is currently out of white. However, the black and white versions are both now live on Best Buy.


Update: The black version is now up on GameStop. White version here.

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon boot up faster on New 3DS systems compared to original 3DS and 2DS models. But how do they compare during actual gameplay?

In Nintendo Life’s new video, we’re able to see that the New 3DS has just a slight edge when it comes to loading areas. The newer portable also seems to have a bit of an advantage when multiple Pokemon are involved with a battle – specifically Battle Royal. There aren’t major differences and the average player probably wouldn’t be able to detect them, though it’s worth pointing out in any case.

Watch the full video below.

Today, seven new titles were added to the Japanese New 3DS Virtual Console in Japan. Six more are coming next week.

Castlevania, Final Fight 2, Final Fight 3, Mega Man X3, Romancing SaGa, Super Punch-Out!!, and Tactics Ogre are all live on the eShop. Each one costs 823 yen.

Watch trailers for each of these games below.

Coinciding with the release of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, the Pikachu Yellow Edition New 3DS XL has arrived in Japan and Singapore (the latter country has it as a U.S. system). View some photos of the design below.
