Nintendo Is Releasing Another Pikachu-Themed Nintendo 3DS
If you're ready to buy another 3DS model, get ready for February's newest release.
Following the Nintendo Switch’s announcement, many incorrectly predicted that the new console would overtake the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo is driving this point home with the release of a brand new Pikachu Yellow Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL, scheduled for release on February 24.
The new 3DS is a cheery Pikachu yellow with a drawing of Pikachu on the cover in a darker yellow and it will be sold at the retail price of $199.99. It’s pretty adorable, especially since it features Pikachu so prominently, but you’ll be able to play a whole new host of 3DS titles on it as they release as well, such as the upcoming Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World, Mario Sports Superstars, Pikmin for Nintendo 3DS and more.
It’s going to be a fairly expensive couple of months for Nintendo fans, especially with the Nintendo Switch launching on March 3 for a retail price of $299.99. If you want to stock up on all the latest Nintendo products, you might want to start saving those Rupees now so you’re not running into a financial crisis later.
