On the same day Yoshi's New Island launches, March 14, Nintendo will be releasing a special edition 3DS XL. The "Yoshi Edition" system will feature a green coloring with an egg trailing Yoshi on the front and a few Yoshi eggs on the back. I would have preferred Yoshi carrying Baby Mario, but it's still pretty darn cute. You can grab this bundle for $199.99 at launch.
