This will be released in places like Malaysia/Phillipines, and is only compatible with NTSC U/C releases! (meaning it will play North American software!) No word on the Pikachu n3dsxl yet, so far it's Japan only.
Is anyone hoping for a direct USA release? Or maybe the Pikachu n3dsxl? Personally, I'd love to get some nice looking Sun/Moon cover plates for the standard n3ds!
Also, I found some interesting Pokemon news on Nintendo's website!
They have a page detailing the upcoming Wii-u VC releases of the original PMD games (6/23), and in the article it says "look for more Pokémon Virtual Console titles coming later this summer"
Any ideas / hopes for what those titles could be? My guess is Gold/Silver/Crystal for 3ds! Considering the Pokemon bank compatibility with R/B/Y data, as well as the wireless modifications to the "cable club", I have a feeling that G/S/C will be showing up soon! I'm going to be really sad if its just more PMD games or something. lol
Thanks for looking!
