Pikachu 3DS XL coming to Chile, US might be next

0

Announced at Pokémon Day Chile 2013

Nintendo has been very selfish, hoarding all those lovely special edition 3DS models in Japan and not even giving Americans a goddamn black XL. But every once in a while, Nintendo will surprise us with an act of kindness that makes you say, "Those chuckleheads ain't half bad!"

This past Saturday, January 19, fans held Pokémon Day Chile 2013 in Santiago, Chile. Despite being entirely fan-conceived, it received the blessing of JVLat, Nintendo's distributor in the region. As a show of support, a few surprise Pokémon announcements were made, including a couple of local Meloetta distribution events, a South American Pokémon tourney, and the arrival of the special edition Pikachu 3DS XL in the West.

A pre-order listing for the new machine is already up in Chilean stores like Zmart Games, with a tentative release date of March 31. What does this mean for us further north? Apparently the Nintendo hardware sold in Chile is identical to what is sold here, English text and all. Why would Nintendo manufacture US devices if it wasn't also planning on selling them in the US?

Riddle me that, Batsy!
