A special edition Animal Crossing 3DS XL will launch in Europe alongside the game on June 14, Nintendo has announced.

The bundle includes a pre-installed digital copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and features an Animal Crossing-themed design on its outer shell.

As normal for Nintendo hardware, Nintendo has not announced a price for the special edition console, but early retailer listings point to an £199.99 RRP.

Rumours of an Animal Crossing 3DS XL surfaced yesterday after a listing appeared on UK retailer ShopTo.
