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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

    • If it comes to US, I won’t get it because I’m happy with my 3DS. It’s just bigger, bulkier and more money. Now, if they had a Pikachu yellow 3DS…

      • 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.

    • Yep. They would. They don’t care what idiots like you think about them and buy what they want. I’d have respect for them.

      • Sure thing, of course little virgins like them and probably you would wait in line for a glorified faceplate swapped toy.

        No self-respecting gamer would do this to themselves.

        • Looks like Smitty’s prediction on an unoriginal insult was spot on. Then again, Aeolus is rather predictable…
