After we received the exciting news that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will be released onto the 3DS Virtual Console in February, Japan also got the news that they will be getting boxed versions of the titles with a download code inside of it.
There’s no news on whether or not the West will receive something similar, but presumably it would have been mentioned in the Nintendo Direct if it was.
What do you think of the concept of boxed download codes?
Update: Pokeshopper shows further images including special game cartridges set for Japan:
