It’s not a new color, but it will come with a never-before-released Pokémon Mystery Dungeon animation DVD when it goes on sale in a week!
Nintendo has announced a new DS package that will go on sale in limited numbers around the end of this week: the Nintendo DS Limited Edition Pokémon Pack. It may not be a new color, but the custom Onyx DS Lite features images of Palkia and Dialga etched into its cover. These two "legendary" Pokémon were the same ones featured on the box art of the latest mainline Pokémon releases, Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. The set will also include a special mini-poster and a similarly themed Palkia and Dialga DS Lite carrying case.
Fleshing out the Limited Edition package is a DVD containing a never-before-released special episode of the Pokémon animated series. "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness" is a single episode animated special based on the recent DS games of similar name. The previous Pokémon Mystery dungeon games also had their own (unrelated) animated special that aired in the U.S. in 2006.
Nintendo’s penchant for releasing new versions of their handheld console hardware is well known. However, since this latest announcement reveals only a limited edition release, Nintendo is staying mum on what the next iteration will look like for their successful handheld business.
The Nintendo DS Limited Edition Pokémon Pack will be available August 17 (this coming Sunday) for a suggested retail price of $129.99.
