Saw it on CAG. I'll get one to use for the "free" game promo.

Here's a NL article stating that they'll have a Pikachu related announcement tomorrow, pretty obvious as to what it is:

So yeah, that's pretty cool. I recently upgraded to the XL myself but I'd still like this Pikachu edition.

This will be my fourth 3DS.

no word on a built-in right-analog dealie?

I doubt that will ever happen.

Why do you need so many?

I'm still waiting for one SKU that clears the value threshold.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 13, 2013 5:07:48 PM PDT
To be fair one of those (the Fire Emblem LE) doesn't count because I haven't opened the box so it's more like this will be my third.

I'm tempted to get this...or the Fire Emblem one...

I bet they will be packaging the new pokemon dungeon game with it.

What is your value threshold? I mean, they aren't giving them away, but there are a LOT of great games out or coming out within the year that makes it a very valid purchase. If only they would give a date for Bravely Default, I would be happy.

I think I'm waiting for a another price cut, a bundle with a game I want, and a better battery in the base unit.

So a few more years, I'm guessing.

On that note, that promo is still going on. Register any 3DSXL and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and get a voucher for a retail game from the eShop.

Dang, I might be tempted to get this!

What free game promo are you talking about?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 13, 2013 7:05:18 PM PDT
Register an XL and either Luigi's Mansion or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon and get out a voucher for one of these-

Super Mario 3D Land

Starfox 64 3D

New Art Academy

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

FreakyForms Deluxe

(free game will be downloaded)

J. Pardee says:
Interesting, thank you for the information! I don't think I will be buying either of those two games if I do buy this 3DS but that's still a good deal.

Krypto says:
Any XL registered after Feb. 14 qualifies. My XL is already set, plan to pick up Dark Moon and nab Prof. Layton for free.

Well, if people still like to collect DSi's, you can get this one

All I know is this thing will be worth a pretty penny in 3 years.

I actually bought the Pokemon Black version of this for $58 a little over a year ago at Target. Should have bought all three they had

Ninty Tweet with US box art: Will you be getting the new #Pikachu Nintendo #3DS XL? It launches on March 24! http://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/312232285036503040/photo/1

Looks like this is only available through Walmart, Target, Toys R' Us, and Gamestop.

Still not sure if I want this. I'd rather have the SMT bundle that was announced but who knows if that's coming to the US.

Is it yellow? Because there is no way I'd play with a yellow one. I'm not self conscious, but that would look just silly.

J. Pardee says:
It is, yellow and white. It also looks like Pikachu has nipples with where the cameras are situated.

...you haaaad to say that. Now I'll be thinking it every time.

I love the color scheme. Yellow and white inside. With Pikachu? There's just no way to go wrong.
