Oh. My. God.

Good gravy I want that! I paid $300 smackers for the Pikachu yellow DS Lite. I would do the same for this but they are region locked! I'm betting on it making its way the US later in the year.

Stuff like this is the reason I am waiting to buy a 3DS XL. I admit, I was spoiled by the beauty of my Ocarina of Time Zelda bundle 3DS. So I'm holding out for a special XL, this Pikachu LL isn't a bad start! I'm hoping for a Majora's Mask XL or a Luigi's Mansion edition. I know the odds are slim but hey, I could be hoping for an Earthbound XL edition.


*Sigh* in a perfect world....

No, you're looking at it wrong.  You have to think of this LL version as your gateway to importing 3DS games from Japan.  $300 or so is a small price to pay to be able to do that.

I like the way you think!

Finally, thanks to the 3DS cameras, we can see how Pikachu's nipples view the world!

What does the LL mean? I know of the 3DS and the 3DS XL. Is the LL some new revision? Why haven't I heard of it before?

LL is the Japanese name for the XL.

Oh, okay.

I am so glad I'm not the only one who saw that when I looked at this thing.
The camera placement is unfortunate indeed.
