Pikachu Nintendo 3DS XL Thundershocks Europe In December

By Ishaan . November 12, 2012 . 10:30am

Two limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL colours are headed to Europe this winter. The first is a white Nintendo 3DS XL, which will include a download copy of either Super Mario 3D Land or Mario Kart 7 pre-installed on the system, depending on which you prefer.

 

The white 3DS XL with Mario Kart 7 will be available in European stores starting November 16th, while the white model with Super Mario 3D Land will be available starting November 30th.

 

The second limited edition 3DS XL is the previously announced Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow system, which will be available in Europe starting December 7th.

    Still waiting for NA to get something similar…Just keep waiting…

      Same. I’m all ready to purchase a 3DS XL all I’m waiting for is an NA release of this or something better ._.

    • Barrylocke89

      I’m sure there’s a better chance of this than of the FE 3DS, at least :/

    When you say “in Europe”, do you mean it’s being sold in all the usual retailers like regular XLs? The limited edition part makes me unsure. D:

      They don’t specify in their PR. NOE say the white XL will be available at retailers, and then follow up by saying a yellow Pikachu 3DS XL will also be available starting December 7th. They don’t specify whether it will be at regular retailers, though.

      GAME has had the Pikachu one up for pre-order for quite a while now (release date is still TBA though), but I haven’t seen it anywhere else. The white one, on the other hand, is quite easy to find.

    I think it would look a lot snazzier if the hinge was black.

    I can imagine this coming over to NA if it’s bundled with Mystery Dungeon.

       if the hinge had the tips of Pikachu’s ears on them that would be awesome

    black friday. just like the zelda 3ds. pretty sure we’ll get something!

  • Chris Choi

    WHY NO PIKACHU FOR AMERICA (TT_TT)?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I kinda think that this bundle is going to be released on Black Friday in U.S lol. I mean, Nintendo would love to sell their consoles as much as possible there.^_^

    Europe is taking revenge on us for all the nice things we get.

    I find this one to be ugly. And the idea of Pikachu being upside down when it’s open is just weird to me.

    I still like the OoT 3DS or the Animal Crossing ones. Among numerous Japan-only ones. ):

  • Jiang Ryudo

    I just want NoE / NoA to give us the Fire Emblem 3DS. I’m not really interested in any other variant (unless they ever release a Castlevania one, but that’s just crazy talk!)
    I was very tempted by the Zelda one, but I couldn’t justify the expense at the time so I missed out. But Fire Emblem is another story, I would find money for that one!

    Just wish Nintendo were receptive to the idea…

    • Kevin Tan

      I would take even the regular 3DS that was released alongside the JP version. :o  It looked great, and I would transfer my 3DS data to it and use it.  MAKE IT HAPPEN, WESTERN NINTENDO BRANCHES!
