In a raffle. That you get an entry for by spending over 1000 yen at the Denny’s and Famil family of restaurants in Japan. Apparently, there are ten of said systems to be won via the raffle, and another five to be won via an email campaign on the official website. Here’s a picture of the system design in question: As you can see, it’s a pretty nice design! Decent colour scheme, decent styling around the edges, a pretty neat picture showing off Yveltal and Xerneas (alongside Ash and Pikachu from the Pokemon anime series). Pity it’ll never be released to the public, or made available to buy or win outside of Japan. So yeah, what do you think? Are […]
Which if you’re in the UK, is quite a lot lower than the prices you’d get in most stores for this system, especially given it’s general level of popularity. So why’s it being offered so cheaply? Put simply, they’re just clearing out old Nintendo stock. So if you need a new 3DS XL and live in the UK, now’s your chance to buy one at a ridiculously low price without any strings attached!

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!
Want this awesome Pokemon X and Y 3DS XL shown in the post screenshot? Well, good luck with that, since it’s the rarest 3DS system ever made. How rare? Only ONE will ever be made. And it’ll go to the sole winner of the Pokemon Dragon King Tournament, complete with the winner’s name printed on the console itself. So for the source (and my random views on the subject), head inside and keep reading…
Well, it’s apparently been spotted in a Walmart backroom ready to go on sale, so I guess there’s pretty good evidence this is going to be the case. It’s a silver Luigi edition 3DS XL with Mario & Luigi Dream Team already installed on the system as a digital game. Want to see a picture of what it looks like? Hear my general thoughts on it? Keep reading the full article after the break!
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…
Remember a while back how a special ‘Year of Luigi’ edition 3DS was released in Japan but nowhere else in the world? How everyone has since then assumed the console won’t be coming overseas? Well guess what! Turns out Nintendo of Europe ARE releasing said system over here, along with a second special console design based on the Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds! And they’ll both be available to buy from November this year! Keep reading to see some pictures of these systems…
It’s already been seen before in at least one Mario & Luigi Dream Team commercial, but now Nintendo of America has also officially confirmed that the black 3DS XL system will be officially released in the US. Here’s the official press release for the system: The Nintendo 3DS XL system is about to get a little more formal. On Aug. 11, Nintendo is releasing a black version of the Nintendo 3DS XL hand-held system, joining the currently available range of colors: blue, red and pink. The system is launching on the same day as Nintendo 3DS game Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, so fans that pick up a new black system or already own a Nintendo 3DS can also play […]
