Special Edition 3DS XL Spotted in Nintendo Commercial

There’s hope for you Pokémon fans yet—remember that Pikachu 3DS XL that was released in Japan months ago? The one nobody thought would ever be released anywhere else?

Turns out we may have been wrong. There are plenty of rumors that it could be headed to North America, mostly sparked by the appearance of the Pikachu 3DS XL in one of Nintendo’s current commercials.

The bright yellow handheld appears in the new TV commercial for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity; the game is launching in North America later this month.

While Nintendo of America hasn’t officially said anything about the special edition system, and the commercial doesn’t mention it specifically, there’s got to be a reason for it showing up in the clip. It’s probably only a matter of time before we hear an official statement, so stay tuned!
