Pikachu New 3DS XL coming to North America on February 24th | Nintendo Wire

Nintendo of America has confirmed that the former Japanese exclusive Pikachu New 3DS XL is finally making its way to North America on February 24th. While this particular design was available for the U.S. region in small quantities through overseas websites like Play-Asia after the Japan, it never saw a full release that made it readily available in U.S. stores. Lucky for us, the limited status doesn’t seem to be the case anymore!

The system features an adorable, hand drawn image of Pikachu on the front – which makes this system a truly adorable addition for any Pokémon fan’s collection. And as usual, the XL console will retail for $199.99. Check out the box art below!

Planning on picking up the Pikachu New 3DS XL? Let us know in the comments below.
