The rather decadent gold New Nintendo 3DS XL Hyrule Edition will launch in the UK on March 24, alongside Hyrule Warriors: Legends, a 3DS version of the well received Wii U action game.

The gold-coloured console features a Hylian Crest on the front and, like other New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, offers better controls, enhanced processing power, amiibo support and more.

A copy of Hyrule Warriors: Legends is not included in the box, however.

Building on the original Wii U game, Hyrule Warriors: Legends includes additional new maps and characters from The Legend of Zelda series. Tetra, Toon Link and the King of Hyrule from The Wind Waker HD join the Skull Kid from Majora's Mask on the battlefield. New character Linkle also joins the cast of playable characters.

The game will be compatible with a host of amiibo from The Legend of Zelda series, including the Wolf Link amiibo, which will unlock enhanced weapons for Midna. Other The Legend of Zelda amiibo will also unlock enhanced weapons for their respective characters in the game.

A Limited Edition bundle, featuring the game and a replica of Linkle's signature compass, will also be available at launch.
