The Japanese will buy the crap out of this Pikachu 3DS XL

Japan and its five bazillion handheld models. What do Sony and Nintendo expect people to do with so many multi-colored devices? Build a rainbow fort?

The 3DS XL (3DS LL to the Nihon-jin) was only released two weeks ago in Japan. Hell, it won't be out here for another two days. That hasn't stopped Nintendo and the Pokémon Company from announcing a special Pikachu Yellow edition of the supersized portable. Like most 3DS models, it is two-toned -- yellow on the outside and white on the inside. You know, like a Twinkie.

You'll only be able to obtain this gizmo by pre-ordering from a Pokémon Center between August 25 and September 14. The machine will then be sold on September 15 for the normal price of ¥18,900. No word on whether Pikachu will be gracing other regions' XLs, but I don't think Nintendo is one to pass up on such easy money.
