Pokémon Black/White DSi Bundles Fly To The U.S.


Last year, Nintendo released two Pokémon Black/White Nintendo DSi bundles in Japan, containing DSi systems with Black/White legendaries, Reshiram and Zekrom, etched onto them. Both bundles are now headed to the U.S.


The bundles come with a special DSi, a custom DSi carrying case, and Pokemon Black or White, depending on which you pick. Each bundle costs $179.99, and both go on sale March 6th, alongside the regular release of the games.


While Pokémon Black/White allow for written messages to sent between players using the touchscreen or for online voice chat on a Nintnedo DS, playing Black/White on a DSi or Nintendo 3DS adds online and offline video chat functionality using the systems’ inbuilt cameras.
