In the market for a new Nintendo 2DS XL? You might want to hold off a bit until the end of the month, when you can pick up the upcoming Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition, with a stylized Pikachu adorning its lid. It’s absolutely adorable, and it’s launching on Jan. 26. It can be yours for $159.99, and it’s coming ahead of time for the March release of Detective Pikachu.
“The New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition is a charming addition to the Nintendo 3DS line-up that is sure to delight Pokémon fans of all ages,” says the PR attached to the system, and “delighting Pokémon fans” is right. This thing is delighting me, and I’m just looking at it to write this story.
This is one of the first special 2DS XLs since the console made its debut, and no doubt the first of many that’ll be rolling out in time with new game releases, just like this one is coming out alongside Detective Pikachu. If you’re buying one make sure to take good care of it. The last Pikachu DS that came out ended up skyrocketing in price, after all.
