Pikachu 3DS XL and Meloetta Event Coming to North America?


3ds_xl_pikachuNintendo announced at an event in Chile that the famous Yellow Pikachu 3DS XL will be released. This is awesome news for Chilean fans, but this is also noteworthy for us in North America because the 3DS stock in Chile is the same as ours.

An event for Meloetta was also announced, more information after the jump.

648Meloetta-PirouetteIn Japan, this Pikachu 3DS pre-order sold out on the first day. It was released in Europe just last month, but until now there hasn’t been much reason to believe North America would be getting it. Although there is no official announcement from Nintendo yet, it’s certainly looking more like a possibility than before.

The first Meloetta event outside of Japan was also announced for two local South America video game retail chains. These stores usually run the GameStop promotions, so there is a very good chance that we will get that Meloetta announcement everyone has been waiting for very soon!

Does anyone have plans to pick up the 3DS Pikachu if it comes out? It may not be the limited edition Charizard 3DS, but I’ve been planning on upgrading to an XL and the design is too cute to pass up.

    Yes, I do have plans to pick-up the Pikachu 3DS XL when it comes out. I’ve been wanting an XL for some time now but have waited for the hopes of this cutie or the Animal Crossing 3DS XL. This one is too cute to pass up though. I hope it comes here. And I hope I can buy it.
