The limited edition Pikachu themed Nintendo 3DS XL previously exclusive to Japan will be coming to Europe in “limited quantities”. The announcement was confirmed during a Nintendo Direct conference today.
The Pikachu Yellow 3DS LL (what the Japanese call the 3DS XL) is yellow on the outside, featuring an image of the popular Pokemon, and white on the inward facing side. The handheld includes the standard accessories and carries the system’s standard ¥18,900 price in Japan. A European release date or price is yet to be announced.
Pikachu has previously been immortalised in console form with a special edition of the N64, a blue and yellow version of the console with a large Pikachu on top. The electric mouse has also dominated the handheld market with a Gameboy Colour, Gameboy Advance SP and DS Lite versions available.
The Pikachu Themed 3DS XL will be released in Japan on September 15th 2012.
