To coincide with the launch of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Nintendo will be releasing the recently teased “Pikachu Edition” of the 3DS XL in all of its brightly colored yellow glory. The handheld will be priced the same as the current 3DS XL, despite the amazing paint job. So if you’re looking to show the world your love of everyone’s favorite Pokemon you’ll be spending the usual $199.99 when you pick up the handheld on March 24th.

Players planning on picking up both Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and a new 3DS XL system (not just the Pikachu edition) can look forward to one more free game. Here’s the info straight from Nintendo:
