The other stores carrying will be Toy's R Us, Target, and Walmart.

I know, MSRP, but I remember seeing ppl mention wanting this exact LE 3DS XL before, and I didn't know it was getting a NA release!

Edit: Confirmed target will have for $159.99 on 3/24 (Not sure about afterward's)

Multiple news sources confirmed and one had a picture of the ad page with the $159.99 price under the Pikachu 3DS XL

Thank you, any way to set a pre-order for this from them or will it be first come first serve?

A Walmart near me still has 3ds xl Mario kart bundles for $199.99. Once the target sale for $159.99 xls is active do you think ill be able to price match at Walmart? $159.99 for the Mario kart bundle would be amazing!

Just show up during the week it's on sale. While interest is high here and among Pokemon fans, it's not like the average consumer is going to all of a sudden rush down to Target just to buy a new $160 handheld that has been on the market since August of last year. Unless this is truly limited (which is unlikely given that it's going to be distributed at Target and is prominently featured in their weekly ad), I doubt you're going to have a problem finding one.

Thanks for in the info. I'm not interested since i just got the zelda 3ds.
i think fire emblem should became the xl. dont get me wrong, the pokemon is alright, but i dont like the way it looks when its open. The target price is good for anyone looking since its retail is $200.

I hope nintendo release the black xl bundle (monster hunter i think)
or someday release another zelda xl.

That Charizard XL is awesome! Europe is actually getting the Fire Emblem 3DS as an XL in April. I don't know why they didn't do that here.

My friend and I were talking about the pikachu xl and how much we wanted it. Then I realized I'm almost 30 and would only be able to use it at home lol. I would totally rock the charizard in public though.

Yeah, there's no shame in having the average adult seeing you play your electronic toy featuring a fat yellow mouse with blushy clown cheeks and big black nipples...none. at. all.

your perspective is distorted in what the "alpha males" have set to be the standard for all of us.

I guess people have known this was coming for a while since your listings haven't sold in a while.

I bet there are a lot of people who are going to be kicking themselves in the ass once this officially comes out. I remember there was a CAG here trying to sell for damn near $500.

Anyone have a clue what this is limited to?


I read from a reputable source on GameFAQs that they are only manufacturing 5000. O_O

Unless it's the launch of one (Wii-u, PS4, etc), nope.
