Limited 3DSs that are long gone from retail

Hi guys and gals,

I check Nintendo’s online shop periodically and it looks like they threw up many limited edition 3DSs which are long gone from retail. I figured this would be a good idea for a one off thread. Maybe more often like the Wii U thing from a few weeks ago.

We have:
Crystal Blue and Red 2DS
Fire Emblem Fates New 3DS XL
Monster Hunter New 3DS XL
Persona Q 3DS XL

What do they mean by refurbished here?

They are refurbished by Nintendo themselves and come with the same 12 month warranty as their new stuff.

I have experience with purchasing three DS Lites (one Zelda and two Mario Red) and a 2DS - all with no cosmetic damage. The 2DS was red but had a blue stylus. Hardly an issue.

I tell people all the time if they are ever on the fence about the DS/3DS platform: get a $60 2DS and experience a thousand games without a massive outlay of cash.

Do the refurbished units come in their original packaging or plain boxes?

From my experience they come in a white box with a label from Nintendo signifying what model is in the box.

Pics of the box I can’t get because it’s in storage along with the 2DS.

Pics of the referenced units in the OP are long gone.
