Nintendo Reveals Pikachu-Themed 2DS XL
It calls to me.
01.12.18 - 12:02 PM

It's really hard to properly describe this New Nintendo 2DS XL: It's simultaneously adorable, mesmerizing, and amongst some of the RPGFan staff, slightly frightening in its unblinking gaze. I fall firmly in the "so cute I want to squeeze its cheeks" camp, but take a look and judge for yourself:

This electric new addition to the 2DS lineup launches in North America on January 26th for $159.99 USD, so be on the lookout! In related news, following its announcement this morning, Nintendo also confirmed that Detective Pikachu, releasing March 23rd, will retail for $39.99. The accompanying extra-large Detective Pikachu amiibo will be available the same day for $29.99. The amiibo will reveal "a combination of hilarious content that might also provide a hint" for the game, but Nintendo assures us that these scenes are accessible without the amiibo, which simply provides a "shortcut" to the content, instead of locking them away.

Lastly, we updated our Detective Pikachu gallery again with several new character artworks, so don't miss 'em!

Look for more on Detective Pikachu and Pokémon in general as the game nears release!
