And not from a large store or anything either. Nope, this 32 year old guy in Japan was arrested for stealing a rare Pokemon edition 3DS XL from a ten year old kid in the city of Nishinomiya, near Kobe in Japan. He was caught because he tried to pawn off the console and five games (that were stolen with it) at a used game shop, which was close enough to the victim’s house that one of his friends spotted the system in the store. The warranty was used to confirm that the console was indeed the stolen one, and the suspect owned up shortly afterwards.
So how many different 3DS designs are there by now? Because we’ve had a ton of Pokemon style ones, one for every game in the Year of Luigi and enough rare Japan only models to last a lifetime. But none the less, now another unique design has been revealed. Behold, the new Mickey 3DS XL design that’s coming soon!

So for the source (and my random views on the subject), head inside and keep reading…

That’s already pretty impressive, but do you know what was even more so? This was in Japan. The region that doesn’t really like Zelda games that much and pretty much bought hardly any copies of the most recent titles whatsoever. Yet within five minutes of Amazon Japan putting 700 bundles online, the whole lot was completely sold out.
For you guys in America anyway, the source given says nothing about how GAME might sell it over here in the UK. Still, according to someone on Twitter and i HeartNintendo, GameStop will only be offering the special Zelda 3DS on Black Friday on a first come first serve basis with no pre-orders. Read on to see the Tweet in question and my thoughts on the matter…
