We saw Hideo Kojima tease a limited-edition snakeskin 3DS before, but now Konami has shown a more revealing picture of the device, along with details on how you'll be able to get your hands on one — and be warned, it doesn't sound easy. It's going to be sold exclusively through the Japanese Konami Style store, and even then you'll have to register before February 3rd and come out on top in a lottery for an unspecified number of units. "Winning" the raffle will give you the opportunity to buy the Premium Package for 22,980 yen (about $300), which includes the system, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D game and a couple of clear plastic files. For comparison, a standard 3DS goes for 15,000 yen (about $200) in Japan, with games ranging from 4,000 to 5,000 yen ($50-$60) — there's definitely a "Premium" in this package. Remember, though, that if you don't win the raffle you can always show your love for Kojima with a pouch and 3DS decals kit, launching alongside the game on March 8th in Japan.
