Nintendo 2DS finally coming to Japan bundled with the original Pokemon games

Celebrating Pokemon’s 20th anniversary

Two years after its western release, the Nintendo 2DS is finally coming to Japan.

The handheld will be available in four semi-transparent colors (red, green, blue, and yellow), all of which come matched with one of the original Pokémon games pre-installed the system.

In commemoration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, the bundle will come with a version-specific menu theme, stickers, a download code for Mew, and poster with a map of the Kanto region.

The bundle will be available in Japan starting February 27, the very same day the original Pokémon games will be re-released worldwide via the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.

There’s no word at this time if a similar package is being planned for an international release.
