You Cannot Eat this Nintendo 3DS. Sorry.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater is coming to the Nintendo 3DS as Snake Eater 3D. To mark the occasion, the game is getting a very special Nintendo 3DS. Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima provided a first sneak peek.

According to Kojima, this is the first snakeskin embossed Nintendo 3DS. Of course, it's not covered with actual snake, but rather, covered in a scaly shell.

Expect more details, including pricing, to slither out on Jan. 20.
