To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Pokémon Center outlets in Japan, news has emerged that a brand new Pokémon-themed 3DS XL will become available in the region next month. Similar to the Charizard 3DS XL (pictured), you'll need to enter into a lottery to be in with a chance to purchase the system.

It's rumoured that the new Japanese exclusive handheld will feature the Evolution Pokémon, Eevee. Best not to get your hopes up with this, however, it is a rumour after all.

The fiery Charizard 3DS XL soared into Japan late last year, and it's still disappointing that a Western release hasn't been mentioned. We did at least see the Pikachu 3DS XL bolt its way overseas, so we can still hope.
