Special Edition Pikachu 3DS XL Shows Up In North American Commercial

Nintendo, you tease

Remember that awesome Pikachu 3DS XL that hit Japan all those months ago? It's long been rumoured that it could be heading stateside, and it would appear that we now have confirmation of that momentous event — from Nintendo itself, no less.

The distinctive yellow system stars in the new TV commercial for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, which launches in North America this month.

Nintendo of America hasn't said anything official about the console coming to the US and the commercial itself doesn't mention a forthcoming release, but there has to be a reason for it being on display. Will you be picking one up? Post a comment to let us know.
