Pikachu Nintendo 3DS

If you’re still in the market for a 3DS even after the official unveiling of the Switch, Nintendo has just the thing for you: provided you’re a Pikachu fan. Starting February 24th, the company will be releasing a new yellow version of the New Nintendo 3DS XL, featuring a crayon-like sketch of the most famous electric pokémon on its cover. (The cute 3DS variant has already been available in Japan for some time.) It’s a much less subtle way of showing your poké-fandom compared to the official Pokémon Sun and Moon-branded 3DS from last year. Aside from the new design, the Pikachu 3DS is identical to other versions of the handheld. It’ll be available for $199.99 when it launches.
