If you’re one of the few who were holding out to pick up a 3DS, you might’ve just made the right call. Nintendo announced today that the special edition Pikachu 3DS XL will be hitting store shelves March 24th.
With a 4GB memory card and looking awesome, it’s fairly priced at $199. However, a tipster over at CheapAssGamer has posted a launch price via Target for $159.99. With Pokemon X and Y just over the horizon, this is pretty much the perfect time to be picking one up. Hell, I might even upgrade from my standard 3DS.
On top of this, if you pick up one of the two games coming out that day with it: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon along with this system, register your system and the game by April 30th to receive one of five of the following 3DS games for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Star Fox 3D, Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive, and Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone.
