US fans have long envied Japan and all the special 3DS varieties they have. One of the most extravagant models was the Pikachu 3DS XL which is one of the cutest pieces of electronics ever. The adorable portable will hit US stores on the 24th.
The 24th should be a pretty big day for the 3DS. The 3DS will have two major releases that day with Luigi’s Mansion and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates To Infinity. If you register your Pikachu 3DS XL, or any other 3DS XL, along with one of those two games, you’ll get a free digital copy of select 3DS games. You’ll be able to download Star Fox 64, Super Mario 3D Land, Freaky Forms, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, or Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone. With the 3DS having a slow few months in the US, hopefully this will give the system a kick in the pants.
