Since Hello Kitty is put on just about anything, a Hello Kitty New Nintendo 3DS was only a matter of time.

The Kitty-chan 3DS is outfitted with Hello Kitty faceplates (which are also sold separately for 2,000 yen or US$17) and is priced at 17,000 yen ($143). It goes on sale on November 28 in Japan, making it a purrfect, sorry, perfect holiday gift.

No word yet on an international release.
