Nintendo is very keen to emphasize that the 3DS has plenty of life in it yet, and Nintendo of America has made a few notable announcements to emphasize that point. Perhaps most exciting for Pokémon fans and lovers of limited edition systems is a new variation on the way to North America.

The Pikachu Yellow Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL arrives on 24th February and will have the usual recommended price of $199.99; it doesn't include any bundled games. There's no word yet of a release in Europe.

It's a handsome design, so here's hoping stores get decent stock. Are any of you planning to get one of these?
