Nintendo Australia are kicking off 2016 with a bang, announcing three special edition 2DS Pokémon-themed bundles.
Available from February 27th this year, fans can get their hands on a Nintendo 2DS Special Edition bundle, including a Nintendo 2DS system in either transparent red, blue or yellow, as well as a pre-installed Virtual COnsole version of Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version or Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition respectively.
The packaging has been designed to be reminiscent of the original Game Boy games. Each bundle will also come with a 15 sticker sheet, plus a download code for a HOME Menu theme. Each bundle is priced at a rather modest SRP $AU149.95.
Asides from the special 2DS releases, a set of two Cover Plates will also be avaialble for the New Nintendo 3DS – one features a Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, while the other has classic Pokémon artwork. Both will be available from February 27th, priced at SRP AU$24.95.
If you prefer to pick up the original classic Pokémon titles for Virtual Console, you can get them via the Nintendo eShop from February 27th, 2016 as well.
Asides from the newly announced consoles, Nintendo Australia have also confirmed Pokémon Rumble World will launch in Australia and New Zealand on January 23rd, priced at SRP AU$49.95. Already available as a downloadable game since April 2015, this packaged version will have a number of re-configured features.
Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon will be available from February 20th, 2016. Until March 17th, if you purchase the game via the Nintendo eShop or pre-order it, you’ll also receive a bonus free HOME Menu theme, featuring Charizard, Pikachu and Bulbasaur, plus other favourite Pokémon.
