Last October Nintendo launched the first 2DS models alongside Pokémon X & Y; it's clearly a strategy that worked well, as the hardware and games will be intertwined once again this year. Nintendo has announced new transparent 2DS models, and also related bundles with Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.

The basic models, in red and blue, are pictured below and will launch as standalone sytems on 7th November in Europe.

Following that the following bundles with arrive on 28th November; each contains their relevant game pre-installed on the system's 4GB SD card.

In addition Nintendo has confirmed UK distribution details for the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire demo in October, and you can check those details out right here.

[Update: The Official Nintendo UK Store is now offering pre-orders for all of these bundles and systems, details right here.]
