Nintendo reveals $200 system with 4GB SD card launching later this month at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and GameStop.
Nintendo today announced a special Pikachu-themed 3DS XL system will launch at North American retailers March 24 for $200.
The bundle includes a 4GB SD card and will be available the same day 3DS-exclusive Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity launches at retail in the United States.
The Pikachu 3DS XL system will be available at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and GameStop. According to Nintendo, quantities are "limited."
Nintendo yesterday lost a 3DS patent infringement lawsuit over the glasses-free technology used in the portable. The Mario maker was forced to pay former Sony inventor Seijiro Tomita $30.2 million in compensatory damages as a result.
Wow. that's a rude article xD what does the loss of a legal dispute have to do with a new 3ds. Its like i can nvr read anythng nintendo related on this site and finish the article on a positive note :/
this would b like, someone posted a comment on this site about final fantasy and they also include "Nintendo yesterday lost a 3ds patent infringement lawsuit over the glasses-free technology used in the portable. The Mario maker was forced to pay former Sony inventor Seijiro Tomita $30.2 million in compensatory damages as a result." at the end of their comment xD
"OMG IM SO EXCITED FOR FINAL FANTASY 27, THAT SWORD LOOKS AWESOME! oh btw, Nintendo yesterday lost a 3ds patent infringement lawsuit over the glasses-free technology used in the portable. The Mario maker was forced to pay former Sony inventor Seijiro Tomita $30.2 million in compensatory damages as a result."
on the other hand, i for one am glad to hear there is a pikachu 3ds comin out :D
@Zangoosedude It's because GS doesn't like Nintendo much. Quite a few of us have noticed that. They were nice to Nintendo yesterday, but I guess that's over now. xD
that would be awesome they should have done a Red Charmander, Blue Squirtle and Green Bulbasaur 3DS XL as well as the Yellow Pikachu 3DS XL
When is Nintendo going to stop with the rehashes? First we get a $250 DS with a gimmicky 3D screen, then an extra large fisher price version of that, and now a version with a Pokemon sticker on it.
This Pikachu looks so much more like a Pichu or Pikachu's been going under a really strict diet regimen
very cool of them... maybe if i decide to switch to the xl ...i'll get this one....but i doubt it... i like my original 3ds..
I was hoping they were going to bring the Black MH3 bundles to NA but that isn't happening. Picked up a Blue one and its surprisingly nicer then i thought.
They need to come out with the Monster Hunter 3 or SMT 3DS XL...I don't want a pikachu with nipples. Thanks Nintendo, but no thanks.
Still doesn't beat the Mario Kart/XL bundle, imo. Besides, it's just a skin, which are interchangable, despite how cool this white and yellow 3DS is.
I'm a Pokemon fan (well, that sounded only a little bit awkward right?) but this looks downright bad. Out of all the possible Pikachu artwork they had to go with the 'circle for a face, arms tacked on'-one?
Too bad there hasn't been a good Pokemon game since Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald for this skin to represent with any pride...
@Patohua1 PokemonGames after the GBA and the pokemon shows after the Advanced series were just downright disgraceful. Seriously Nintendo.
@Patohua1 Agree. I haven't touched any Pokemon games since Ruby/Sapphire for Gameboy Advance. First season still the best. It just gradually got worse.
Looks cute but a blue background like the nintendo 64 version would've made it better and stand out more.
They would rather come out with this crap instead of a monster hunter 3 bundle? Nintendo you continue to disappoint
They do have a Monster Hunter 3DS XL, look it up
Nintendo 3DS XL Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Limited Edition Pack
@Synthia thats Nintendo for ya.
buy the best color at the time then 1 week later a new color options have come out or limited bundles.
was gonna trade in my 3ds for an XL soon, but I guess I'll wait it out for this since i'm in no rush

Thank goodness this one is coming out in NA. I've been waiting to buy a 3DS, but now I'm going to have to pick this one up ;)
Uh... shouldn't that graphic be the other way around? Sure, it's right-side up when you take the 3DS out and flip it open but for the rest of the time Pikachu would be upside down to anyone that happens to look at your handheld.
I have an 8-bit Megaman head vinyl on my laptop like that, but it's right-side up when the lappy is open. I'd feel absolutely silly if it were upside down.
