Pokémon X/Y 3DS XLs coming to U.S., Europe ⊟
Two weeks before Pokémon X and Y release on October 12 (the same day the Nintendo 2DS models launch), Nintendo will release these rad red and blue limited edition 3DS XLs featuring legendaries Xerneas and Yveltal — that beautiful gold system isn’t making it over here unfortunately. Priced at $200 each, these XLs ship on September 27, and do not include copies of the game, digital or physical.
Also announced during Nintendo’s Direct presentation this morning, a Pokémon Bank service/app that lets players store up to 3,000 creatures online from X/Y — great for collectors and people who want to pass their Pokémon down to their descendants. There’s a new (presumably DSiWare) app called Poké Transfer, too, that enables players to move creatures from Black/White and Black/White 2 to Pokémon Bank — the catch is that there’s an annual service fee for the Bank service, though there will be an initial free trial period.PREORDER Pokemon X and Y, official strategy guide, upcoming games
