Nintendo has finally remembered how to paint using only one color.

The company revealed today that it will release an all-black 3DS XL in the U.S. on Aug. 11. It will hit stores alongside Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for $199.99.

Prior to this, Nintendo only released its 3DS XL portable system in two-toned variations. The company has a blue and black XL, a red and black XL, and a pink and white XL, but people that dislike the mismatching colors had to stick with the original, smaller 3DS if they wanted a single color.
