If you happen to own either the N3DSXL or the N3DSLL you probably know that they only come with a metallic color (just like the first gen 3DS model).
Japan just announce a new color for the bigger size series (due to the fact that LL is selling more compared to the small one) and is called Pearl White (how WHITE is PEARL WHITE by the way?)
If you compare from these image, I do believe that the white is a matte compared to the previous model. Well there’s only one way to find out. Stay tuned for the June 11, 2015 release. I might just show a video if someone is ordering from me.
