Nintendo Announces Pikachu-Themed New Nintendo 3DS & More
In a recent press release, Nintendo outlined several things Nintendo 3DS fans can expect in 2017, including a new model of the New Nintendo 3DS XL, upcoming 3DS games, and new amiibo cards.
Pikachu Yellow Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL
If you haven’t picked up a New Nintendo 3DS yet and you like Pikachu, this might be the handheld for you. This Pikachu-themed New Nintendo 3DS XL will be available on February 24 for $199.99.
Here are a few of the games 3DS players can expect in the months ahead:
- Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World – February 3
- Tank Troopers – February 16
- Mario Sports Superstars – March 24
- Pikmin game for Nintendo 3DS – official name and release date not yet announced
When Mario Sports Superstars comes out on March 24, you’ll also be able to pick up new Mario Sports Superstars amiibo cards to unlock bonuses in the game. The game will come with an amiibo card for a limited time, and additional cards can be purchased in packs of five for $4.99. They will be available on March 24.
New Nintendo Selects
Finally, a couple more 3DS games will be joining the list of Nintendo Selects. Kirby Triple Deluxe and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will be re-released as Nintendo Select titles sometime in February.
Of course, we know there are a few other Nintendo 3DS games still on the way, such as Lady Layton and Ever Oasis, but this is a nice look at what we can expect relatively soon. What 3DS releases are you looking forward to most in 2017?
