New Pikachu 3DS XL

I've had my pink 3DS since the pink 3DS came out a few months ago. Recently I accidentally cracked the screen and couldn't decide whether to get an XL or stick with the regular 3DS. I ended up replacing it with a regular 3DS mostly because of the price. I didn't think it was worth it to pay more for a bigger screen and maybe more battery life.

Well today the Pikachu 3DS XL version was released. I didn't realize that these were even coming out until Thursday evening but as soon as I saw them I knew I had to get one and thanks to my tax return I actually had the money. My store ended up only receiving two of these guys and they were not even available to preorder. Needless to say I picked one up immediately.

The inside is white-ish which I was not expecting.


PIKAAA

Overall I'm pretty happy that I got it. It ended up costing me about $100 and I'd say it was worth it. Mostly because I know it's going to be impossible to find these in about a week. And the fact that the bigger size is actually pretty nice as opposed to being TOO big like I previously feared. Throw in the extra battery life and I'm pretty excited!

Also FYI if you pick up any 3DS XL as well as Luigi's Mansion or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity I am told if you register each with Club Nintendo by 04/30 you will receive a code to download one of a select number of titles from Nintendo like Star Fox 64 or Super Mario 3D.
