Play Pokemon on it, or alternately use to it startle people with hangovers.


A new Pokemon-themed 3DS XL variant is on the way, Nintendo of America has announced.

The Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL releases in North America on February 24, and goes for $199. It’s clearly perfect for playing Pokemon on.

Unfortunately, the Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL does not come bundled with Pokemon; it comes bundled with no games at all. Perhaps it’s being positioned as an upgrade for those who have dropped their launch 3DS units in the toilet a few too many times…?

Well, if you’re in the market for a new 3DS for whatever reason, here you go: a special edition that can also be used in hazardous or survival situations to draw the eye with its cheerful yellow glow. That’s value adding.
