Pokemon lovers will be excited to learn that the 3DS Xl will be available in 'Pikachu Yellow' from December 7th. It's, erm, yellow. And has Pikachu on it. Cuteness, I choose you!
An understated white version will also release, which might prove to be slightly less overt while playing it on a crowded train. Nintendo has announced that some new bundles (launching December 16th) will include Mario Kart 7 or Super Mario 3D land pre-installed.
The 3DS XL is a seriously nifty piece of kit despite the ridiculous lack of a second circle pad. Check out our hardware review for more details.
