It looks like this week is all about bundles and consoles that are going to be released soon. The Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition US Version is one of them, and if you think that Nintendo is all about Switch this time of the year, you are wrong.
The Japanese company confirmed that Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition will get an US version that will arrive on February 24, 2017.
Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition US Version Price and Games
Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition for North America will cost around $200 and it will not include any games or extras.
If you ask yourself why the 3DS and why now, well, according to Nintendo, during last year’s fourth quarter, the company sold over 4.5 million copies of video games for 3DS, Pokémon Sun and Moon being a top performer.
Since this impressive number is for US only, it is safe to assume that Nintendo’s presence is quite strong on the American market.
Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition US Version will be cheaper than the Asian version available right now on Amazon for $309.00, so we suggest you to wait until the handheld arrives in US.
The company also announced that it will continue to support the 3DS with new games, such as Mario Sports Superstars, and a new Pikmin video game.
Mario Sports Superstars, will also be released on February 24, 2017, and if you decide to buy the US version of Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition, you can pre-order the game on Amazon for $39.99.
Additionally, you can also buy the Nintendo Mario Sports Superstars Amiibo Cards Pack when it becomes available on Amazon.
The pack contains 5 Nintendo 3DS Amiibo Cards and should cost $25 or less, because Nintendo confirmed that it intends to sell each Amiibo Card for $5.
This means that starting February, they will cost $20, instead of $29.95 and $42.90 respectively.
If you are looking for other Nintendo Selects video games to buy for your new Nintendo 3DS XL Pikachu Yellow Edition, you can go with Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, both of them selling for $20 on Amazon.
