The source also claimed that Nintendo is readying new 3DS XL packs in preparation for upcoming role-playing games Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Available in either red or blue, no specifics were given on which coloured device would include which game, but the system has reportedly been priced at $199.99. No release date information was given.

Nintendo declined to comment on the alleged leak, saying that the company does not comment on rumour or speculation. Both games are currently slated for an October release.
