Pikachu 3DS XL confirmed for Europe

Garish yellow XL to arrive in "limited quantities"

The sweet Pikachu 3DS XL confirmed for Japan back in August has just been given the green light for Europe.


Nintendo confirmed as much via its Nintendo Direct broadcast today, in which it said the bespoke SKU will arrive in "limited quantities" later this year, but didn't reveal an exact date or retail details.

The special Pikachu-themed 3DS XL (3DS LL in Japan) will only be sold via the Pokemon Center store in Japan.

You can watch the broadcast live through here (when the stream isn't busy being completely rubbish, that is).
