Nintendo has just revealed that the Pikachu edition Nintendo 3DS XL will be releasing on March 24th to coincide with the release of the new Pokemon game, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. The Pikachu 3DS XL will come packaged with a 4GB SD memory and will be available while supplies last at a price of $199.99.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity launches the same day as the Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL system, and draws players in with a deep and compelling story full of unexpected twists. While playing as one of five popular Pokémon, players travel through a near-infinite amount of randomly generated Mystery Dungeons, battle and recruit other Pokémon and collect hidden treasure. The game is available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS and includes the ability to discover Magnagates – entrances to new dungeons – by scanning everyday circular objects with the Nintendo 3DS Camera. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is available at a suggested retail price of $34.99.
Nintendo is also offering a special bonus for people who buy both a Nintento 3DS XL and either Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. Anyone who registers their new 3DS system and a copy of either of those games between March 21 and April 30 will receive a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games for free. These five titles include Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D or Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!.
