We're getting pretty hyped for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and a special, limited-edition bundle makes us almost wish we didn't already have a 3DS to play it on.

When the game lands on 23 November, fans will be able to scoop up a gold 3DS XL with a Triforce emblazoned on the front and back of the device. Each A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL will come with a download code that will allow gamers to grab the game at no extra cost from the Nintendo eShop.

The sequel to 1991's A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds takes place across Hyrule and a new parallel kingdom: Lorule. And Link's new power, the ability to turn himself 2D and walk through walls, looks to open up some really exciting new gameplay.

The Link Between Worlds 3DS XL will retail for AU$269.95. You can watch the game's official trailer here and a gameplay trailer here.

Already bought it, so keen, as I didn't have a 3DS before and I was trying to decide Vita or 3DS but cant pass this up.

You are nuts. The PS Vita does not have game region restrictions, and no hardware restrictions and a lot more powerful hardware and larger device. The DS is for kids, and has too many restrictions - you cannot buy games earlier and cheaper from overseas as Shitendo lock the games, etc. How is this a benefit when draconian measures are used?

I had 2 3D's- US and Local versions, but when I realised Nintendo were actually breaking Consumer Law, and using technology to force people to buy games locally (despite being exactly the same game physically - higher price), I sold these off and will never buy Nintendo again. They even take this so far as to Language Lock the imported versions so if you cannot read Japanese you are stuffed.

These acts are purely for profiteering, and no consumer should accept these measures. This is extortion via electronic means - not acceptable, and breaks many local Consumer Laws.

Until Nintendo scraps their draconian DRM restrictions on games, and region locks, including Language locks to prevent people importing, I will never ever buy Nintendo again.
