Yes, Pikachu, it's great news for 'mon fans in Japan

Not so long ago we told you about the rather neat 3DS LL (XL) "Recommended Software" promotion in Japan, which rewards those that pick up the model with a voucher for a free retail game. This runs until 30th September, but the twist is that the available free games will change every month for the duration of the scheme. Those that buy a 3DS LL now can, for example, hold off to a later month on the chance a game they want becomes available, while others may be tempted into buying the system in any given month if a particularly enticing title is added.

The opening options, from 26th April to 30th May, were Yo-kai Watch and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Nintendo has now revealed the choices that'll kick in for the month of June, and it includes one of the May titles and four others — a generous boost from the two initial options. Three of these are Pokémon games, with one even being a brand new title that's released on 19th June.

Some attractive options there, with the inclusion of the new Art Academy title potentially tempting those that have already collected all of the others.

Territories in the West have had their share of promotions to encourage gamers to buy 3DS hardware, but would you like an equivalent with changing options every month? Let us know.
