Today UK retailer GAME has tweeted to its followers that the charming yellow handheld is now available for pre-order, with a price tag of £179.99. A release date for the device is yet to be confirmed.

I hope I can preorder one in the Netherlands or Belgium. Otherwise I'll have to buy a UK one online.
Definite buy!

Getting this for christmas to replace my aqua blue one. Not because of the color, but my current one is all banged up (me being stupid, flinging around my 3DS game case didn't realize it was open) It flew in the air and landed on concrete. Huge crack on the left of the top screen, circle slider popped out a little bit, and the D-pad is loose.

Can't wait though. This will be awesome, although I wasn't a fan of the DSi XL I guess I can give this a try. Bigger screen is actually cool.

I hope this comes to the NA. I don't like pokemon but would still get it because it has pikachu on it. I like pikachu.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

I'm not much for Pikachu, but I hope everyone tunes in to Haunting Hour season 3 premiere Sat at 6pm EST on HUB. And if you want a great Halloween game, check out Goosebumps for DS

One of my friends really wants this! This is great for him, and could be for me if I had the money!

This is the first I'm hearing of the Pikachu 3DS XL but I kind of wish they took opportunities like this to do packaged deals like they did at points with the DSi and DSi XL later in their lifetime.

I mean, I'm not expecting full games, but wouldn't it be awesome if this came with Dream Radar and 3D Pokedex (Pro) at no extra charge? I don't think that would be that unreasonable. : )
