Zelda 3DS heading for the US

Here’s a quick update for those looking forward to the good-looking, Zelda-themed Nintendo 3DS.

Originally thought to be a European exclusive, the black 3DS — which includes The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D — will apparently be coming to the US after all. This has been confirmed by Best Buy employees, and rumor has it, GameStop will be selling the special edition of Nintendo’s latest portable hardware as well, in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.

This is of course good news for all US gamers wanting the device, but mind you, Best Buy is not Nintendo; we’d wait for official confirmation before celebrating, which should come pronto as the portable is set for release this week.
