We sort of knew it would show up in North America sooner or later, and Nintendo has confirmed that the Pikachu Edition 3DS XL will arrive later this month. Sadly there’s no pack-in Pokémon game coming with it, but we have to imagine Pikachu’s adorable face is enough to move a few units.
The shockingly yellow Pikachu 3DS XL will be available on March 24th, the same day “Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity” is set hit shelves. Though the system doesn’t come with the game, it does include a 4GB SD card and Nintendo is offering a special bonus for people who buy both a Nintendo 3DS XL system and “Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.”
“Anyone who registers a Nintendo 3DS XL system and either Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon with Club Nintendo between March 21 and April 30 will receive a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D or Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!” says Nintendo.
