Japan Goes Crazy Over Yellow Pikachu Nintendo 3DS Console

Hundreds of eager gamers queued up at the Tokyo Pokemon Center today to pre-order the Pikachu Yellow Nintendo 3DS XL console. Preorders for the limited edition console began today at Pokemon Centers throughout Japan. The lines were so big at the Tokyo Pokemon Centre that it took four hours for Pokemon Centre staff to process everyone’s pre-orders.

      1. To be fair, Pikachu IS their flagship. The reason they did this is because when you see Pikachu you instantly think Pokemon. Although I agree that it would be nicer if they did it based off something else this time around. It would be interesting to see one produced based on who wins the tourney: Meaning either Mew or rayquaza.

        1. Ugh but why pikachu? Eevee deserves to be the mascot. It’s a useful pokemon and it’s the perfect starter since it can evolve to other types. Plus its so adoreable.

          1. Well Eevee is more of a “rival” to Pikachu, as indicated by Pokemon Yellow. Since Eevee is the “rival” as well as “starter” in a couple of games, we would be more likely to see a Eevee themed console than other Pokemon besides Pikachu and the starters.

    2. I bought one last week, wonderful special on them at toysrus and I love it. I havent even finished a single game ive own on my 3DS and I play my DSi more then that now and that is just for the odd pokemon battle and thats that. The vita is just clicking for me more then my 3DS.

      1. You’re 1 of 10 people playing the Vita.
        When I picked up my 3DS XL, I asked how the Cita was selling. The store owner just shook their head.
        I think businesses are depressed. Tey thought they’s be making all this money with the Vita, and they can’t sell the fucking things.

          1. The GameStop I go to told me they only had a few used Vitas on stock and due to circumstances, they weren’t willing to restock on New copies.

            Sucks for my brother because my dad refuses to A) buy old and used stuff and B) buy stuff online.

        1. I think that the Vita will pick up once those hyped up exclusives are released for it like it was for the 3DS. Its just a longer time this time.

          I like the feel for the buttons a lot more on the Vita and how you hold it. I cant play Mario Kart for more then an hour on my 3DS but I can play Modnation Racers on my Vita for at least 3 with out my hands cramping up. Its even worse when I try to play Zelda on my 3DS :/ I havent seen a single one of those slider pad thingys in store at all and I dont buy things off the internet. Vita did it right with the buttons thats for sure.

            1. Uhhh hell the fuck no I am not wasting my money on a 3DS XL and tradding in my limited eddition zelda anniversary 3DS for one! all it has is bigger screens and that is it!

              I have it because I love that game and I play the hell out of it on my PS3. The lack of online is annoying yes but if it had it would be better on PS3 anyways. I love creating stuff on modnation and ive gotten pretty skillfull at it.

            1. I have both, and one of my favorite online Xbox games is BlazBlue. But looking back now, I’ve realized it would have been cheaper to re-buy all of my games on PS3 rather than to pay to simply play online with Xbox…

      1. i am from uk. if anything the 360 is more popular than ps3 in uk. and the ds and 3ds are the most popular all round. the wii sticks it out to. although has reached the end of its lifespan .

        sony doesnt dominate europe at all. the psp was unpopular so is the vita. the ps3 is selling below what sony expected etc etc.
        they all do ok . overall nintendo rules europe if you think about their handhelds aswell.

                1. Its cheap price is reason to believe that it will hold up as a gaming device, but probably about similar to an android/iPod/TV-plugin combination device. That’s what they’re making it seem like. They’ve got a large store, it’s powered by android and highly accessible. Thing is, it seems to just do games but doesn’t even do discs or anything. That’s what makes it not a full-on console.

      1. Pokemon and Zelda are great in their own ways. Pokemon is good for just battling and coming up with strategies and stuff once you get through the story (I’m a terrible trainer for never making it through on my own, but that changes before B/W2 release) and Zelda rocks for its stories, visuals and puzzle-based dungeons and gameplay.
