Hideo Kojima has been stirring rumors of a bundled 3DS release to accompany Snake Eater 3DS. Today, the designer tweeted the first teaser image of the custom console that would accompany his remade jungle-stealth thriller, and it’s one of the more stylish first-party mods we’ve seen in quite some time. Take a look at the Snakeskin 3DS below.

Kojima claims this is the games industry’s “first snake pattern-embossed design” – which it probably is, come to that. Even in the ’70s when consoles were decked out in wood-panel, no one thought to make a games machine out of faux freakin’ snakeskin. Expect cowboys, pimps, and anyone else known for outfitting themselves in snake-leather to crowd the internet come Jan 20, when further details on the bundle will be made public.
