Pokémon-Themed Nintendo 3DS XL Launches March 24
Nintendo's giving Pokémon fans some love with a Pikachu-modeled 3DS XL later this month.
Pokémonfans, Nintendo is giving you the chance to feel the Poké-love.
The company announced that it will release a limited-edition Nintendo 3DS XL game system later this month, built with Pokémonfans in mind. The Pikachu system features the iconic, lighting-shooting character right on the front.
The new 3DS XL will be adorned in bright yellow and feature Pikachu's happy, smiling face. All of the other regular features we've come to expect from this Nintendo system will be there, including built-in cameras for chat and picture-taking purposes, an interactive touch screen and the glasses-free 3D display.
Nintendo is launching the system in conjunction with its latest game in the long-running Pokémon franchise, "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity." This latest effort will rely on the strategic Pokémonvs. Pokémon gameplay that fans have come to rely on over the years, while introducing new characters and areas to explore, including randomly generated mystery dungeons.
Packaged with a 4 GB SD memory card, the new system will release alongside "Mystery Dungeon" on store shelves March 24th, costing $200.
Unfortunately, "Mystery Dungeon" is not included with the system, but a new promotion could net you another game for free. If you buy both a 3DS XL and a copy of either "Mystery Dungeon" or the adventure game "Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon" (which also arrives on the 24th) by April 30th, you can pick a free game from a list of titles including "Super Mario 3D Land," "Star Fox 64 3D" and "Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask."
