Pokémaniacs… get ready to throw cash at your monitors.
This past Saturday, Pokémon fans in Chile held “Pokémon Day Chile 2013” in the capital city of Santiago. While the event was completely fan-driven, it did get the blessing of Nintendo’s distributor in Latin America, JVLat. Chilean Pokémon fans, thereby, were treated to a few surprises, such as the announcement of a South American Pokémon tournament, and a special edition Pikachu 3DS XL.
So why does this matter to us in America? Apparently the special edition console, set to release in Chile on March 31, is almost identical to what is sold in North America.
It’s just a rumor right now, but there’s a good chance that über-adorable face may be all up in your 3DS XL by summer.
