Australia still has to wait a little under a week before we finally get the 3DS XL unleashed upon the gaming public but there’s already a new edition which will send Pokemon fans scrambling to their nearest importer.
Nintendo plan on releasing an ultra rare Pikachu 3DS XL model which will only be sold at Pokemon Centres in the following areas: Tokyo, Sapporo, Yokohama, Tohoku, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka.
The model will be called the “Pokémon Center Original Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow” and will sell for ¥18,900 which at today’s exchange rate puts it at $AU228 approximately.
The 3DS XL will be sold from September 15 with a pre-order, pre-orders will start to be taken from August 25. For more info, head on over to 4Gamer.
