A specially designed Nintendo 3DS XL is set to arrive soon. Inspired by the upcoming "Pokemon Sun and Moon," the Nintendo 3DS XL Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition will be coming at the end of October 2016.

The Nintendo 3DS XL "Pokemon Sun and Moon" Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition system features the silhouettes of the two Legendary Pokemon on the front and back of the handheld gaming device. The rest of the device is black, the silhouettes on the back are gray, while the two characters are outlined on the front in white. An image of the Nintendo 3DS XL "Pokemon Sun and Moon" Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition box was also shown, featuring the device at the center. The two Legendaries in color stood on both sides of the box, with the background art divided into day and night.

Gematsu revealed that the new Nintendo 3DS XL "Pokemon Sun and Moon" Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition model will arrive on Oct. 28, 2016. It will abe out on November 11 in Canada, at a suggested retal price of $199.99. "Pokemon Sun and Moon" is set to release on Nov. 18, 2016. Gamers can also opt to buy a Dual Pack for $79.99, which already includes the two titles, and two codes that will unlock 100 Poke Balls each.

VG247 reported that "Pokemon Sun and Moon' will feature new characters, the new Poke Finder feature, Ultra Beasts and new Pokemon evolutions, among others. The two games will be set 12 hours apart, and are connected to real time. "Pokemon Sun" runs on the same time as the Nintendo 3DS system, while "Pokemon Moon" features a 12-hour gap. Players will find various Pokemon depending on the time of day, which means that they will have different experiences depending on the game version.

The full contents of the Nintendo 3DS XL "Pokemon Sun and Moon" Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition have not been detailed. Considering how the launch date of the "Pokemon Sun and Moon" games is later than the new game console, the package may not come with the official title yet. Those who purchased "Pokemon Sun and Moon" before Jan. 11, 2017 will get a bonus. More updates and details on "Pokemon Sun and Go" and Nintendo 3DS XL are expected soon.
