Limited Edition Legend of Zelda 3DS hitting the UK

Tear up your Christmas list and get ready to ask Santa for the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Nintendo 3DS, which has been confirmed by Nintendo as coming to Europe.

The "Cosmic Black" edition of the console will hit the shops on 25 November, giving Christmas shoppers plenty of time to nab one.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that it looked like a regular black 3DS but look carefully and you'll notice the shiny goldish trim. It's all about the little details you see.

Also in the box will be a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, a game which earned the converted Pocket-lint "Hot Product" tag after scoring 9/10 in our comprehensive review.

The Nintendo 3DS hasn't exactly been the rip-roaring success that the Japanese gaming giant would have hoped and some will see the Zelda limited edition bundle as a cynical ploy to boost sales figures by appealing to Zelda and Nintendo collectors.

We don't though, we're all for a mashed-up console. In fact, our Christmas list not only has this new addition on it - but the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Call of Duty: MW3 console as well.

No word on pricing as of yet, we'll update this story as and when we have the official details.
