Black 3DS XLAn all-black 3DS XL might finally be making its way to North America – at least in Canada. GoNintendo has uncovered a flyer from outlet Real Canadian Superstore that suggests the new color (for North America) will be on sale this Friday, July 26.

A commercial for Mario & Luigi: Dream team, currently airing on Cartoon Network in North America, features an all-black 3DS XL. Though the release still has not gotten official confirmation from Nintendo. The last time a Nintendo ad featured a new style of system (the Pikachu 3DS XL in a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon ad), the new version was announced shortly after.

The all-black XL has been a part of Nintendo’s various 3DS offerings for a while, but not outside of European bundles or Japan. A listing on Amazon UK also hints at a possible standalone release for this color. Nintendo of America’s COO Reggie Fils-Aime has been asked about future color configurations of 3DS hardware, but answers are unclear. Fils-Aime noted some 3DS colors simply don’t sell well, while retail limitations in the United States prevent a similar constant color releases for the 3DS XL.
