Nintendo Releasing Pokemon X/Y-Themed 3DS XLs in Japan

To celebrate the upcoming release of Pokemon X and Y, Nintendo will be releasing special edition 3DS XLs: “Xerneas and Yveltal Blue” and “Premium Gold”, each to the tune of 22,800 yen. Naturally, they’ll come with the download version of the game included, along with a 4gig memory card and other standard pack-ins. These will be released alongside the game starting October 12, though no North American release has been confirmed.

Nintendo has confirmed that they will be releasing two very awesome looking Pokemon themed 3DS XL units in Japan to go along with the release of Pokemon X & Y in October. These special editions will be exclusive to Pokemon Centers in Japan. No word on whether they will release in the west.

The systems come with a 4GB SD card and a copy of Pokemon X or Y. It isn’t clear if these are digital copies or physical but I’d imagine digital.

These 3DS XL units will retail for 22,000 Yen or $220. Hopefully Nintendo announces that these systems are coming to the US/Europe in tomorrow’s GameMite news on Nintendo Direct.

And, well, the Nintendo Switch has proved to be so popular that Nintendo has had to double the production run on the new console to keep up with demand, with gamers falling over themselves to get their hands on the system and play 10/10 titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey.

Of course, with the Nintendo Switch now settled into its lifespan, joined by the Nintendo Switch Lite, and granted access to a wide selection of awesome games (and even more great games on the way in 2020), now could be the perfect time for those interested in the Switch to pick one up if they haven’t already. And, if that is the case, then T3’s detailed Switch review here is resource for you.
