Old Meets New With New Nintendo 3DS Themed as Pokémon Red and Blue
Get your nostalgia on.
The PokÃ©mon 20th Anniversary is almost upon us, and the PokÃ©mon Company and Nintendo have dropped some info on a few pieces of awesome hardware they're releasing to celebrate. Unfortunately, as of right now it looks like not every market will be receiving the same hardware, so fans are sure to be a bit disgruntled.
North America will be receiving a PokÃ©mon Red, and Blue themed New Nintendo 3DS with digital download codes for both PokÃ©mon Red and Blue, as well as a special home screen theme. Europe will be getting a variation on the Japanese hardware release in three Nintendo 2DS variations corresponding to the three first generation PokÃ©mon titles. The 2DS will come with a pre-installed PokÃ©mon game of the same color, stickers, and a download code for a special Home theme.
These handhelds will be available in their respective markets on the date of PokÃ©mon's 20th Anniversary, February 27, 2016.
