Visiting Dubai or somewhere within easy travelling distance? If so, you could be in luck, since at least one retailer in the country is already selling Pokemon X and Y a full week or so before its official release date! Not only that, they’re also apparently selling the 2DS already, in case anyone wants one of those!
Here are some pictures showing the games on sale in the store…
And here’s one showing their Facebook page announcement that the 2DS is now on sale and can be bought in store:
These are apparently PAL versions too, so anyone from Europe/the UK who wants to get the games/console should be perfectly fine with them. Same with anyone living in Australia.
So yeah, if you want a 2DS or Pokemon X and Y early, get yourself over to Game Street Dubai and pick one up before Nintendo flies over to try and stop them!
