Pikachu Special Edition 3DS XL Arrives in Europe

In September this year, Nintendo released a special edition Pikachu Yellow 3DS LL (or XL in the west) in Japan. The handheld console was available in limited numbers, and was only sold in the seven Pokémon Centre shops in Japan. It has now been revealed by Nintendo that the Pikachu Yellow 3DS XL will be released in Europe on 7 December 2012. Like the Japanese release, the console will be available in limited numbers.
