New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition launches in stores on Jan. 26

On Jan. 26, an adorable New Nintendo 2DS XL system featuring Pikachu’s
iconic face launches in stores at a suggested retail price of $159.99. The
New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition
system is just as electric as
the Pokémon itself, with an eye-catching yellow design featuring a
stylized close-up of Pikachu’s face. This special edition system is a
must-have for Pokémon fans! As with all Nintendo 2DS systems, the New
Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition system plays Nintendo
3DS
games in 2D.

“The New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition is a charming addition to the
Nintendo 3DS line-up that is sure to delight Pokémon fans of all ages,”
said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales
and Marketing. “With a massive library of games, the Nintendo 3DS family
of systems continues to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences for every type
of gamer.”

There’s even more in store for Pokémon fans in 2018. Announced earlier
today, the new video game Detective
Pikachu
will launch on March 23 in stores, in Nintendo eShop on
Nintendo 3DS and at Nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $39.99.

In this new adventure, players team up with a witty, tough-talking
Pikachu to uncover clues, solve mysteries and encounter familiar faces
from the Pokémon world. For the first time in a video game, this Pikachu
can communicate with the player. With the help of Pikachu’s surprising
voice, players can interact with other Pokémon in a whole new way as
they embark on an adventure through the streets of Ryme City.

Also launching on March 23 is a special edition Detective Pikachu amiibo
figure. This extra-large amiibo can unlock cutscenes if tapped in the Detective
Pikachu
game, revealing a combination of hilarious content that
might also provide a hint. This same content can be accessed in the game
without the amiibo, but tapping the amiibo will allow players to unlock
content more quickly. The Detective Pikachu amiibo figure will be
available at a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Fans who can’t get enough Pokémon can also download the classic 2D Game
Boy Color game Pokémon
Crystal
when it launches in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS on
Jan. 26 for only $9.99. The game, an expanded version of the popular Pokémon
Gold
and Pokémon
Silver
games, was the first in the Pokémon franchise to allow
players to choose between a boy or girl playable character, and was the
first game to introduce animations during Pokémon battles. The Nintendo
3DS version of the game is updated with wireless battling and trading,
and is compatible with the Pokémon Bank app (annual service charge
applies). Pokémon Crystal is now available for pre-purchase
in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
