Even with E3 on the horizon, and new games to be announced, Nintendo is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to many of its previously released titles. This trend can be seen with the most popular franchise available on Nintendo's handheld, Pokémon X & Y.

Beginning on 26th June, Nintendo will begin to offer two bundles in Australia including a 2DS handheld console, as well as a copy of either Pokémon X or Pokémon Y. Both consoles will be in the black/blue colour variant and will come with the Pokémon title pre-installed on the system. The system will retail at AU$179.95 and will be available while supplies last.

Pokémon X & Y continue to be Nintendo's juggernaut franchise on the handheld gaming front. It was reported back in April that the sales of the 3DS exclusive titles were in excess of 12 million units. With this bundle, as well as many others available in other regions, Nintendo is making a push to continue to get this title — as well as the handheld — into people's hands with E3 announcements coming very soon.
