Default Should there be Pokemon X/Y 3DS bundles for EU/US?

I heard they were being offered in Japan.
Limited-Edition Pokemon X/Y 3DS XLs Offered in Japan - Interest - Anime News Network

It'd be cool if they offered them as bundles in the EU/US, those would sell like hotcakes.

holy moo that gold one is beautiful.

I actually considered waiting to buy my 3ds until X/Y came out, in case of a bundle, but I bought the pink one and I really like it... I don't think I would spend the extra money on a bundle, no matter how pretty.

I doubt we'll ever see that golden XL. It's unfortunate, but that seems to be the case when it comes to anything that's exclusive to the Pok?mon Center. However, I'd be pretty surprised if we didn't get the regular blue XL. We've had the GBA SP for Ruby/Sapphire, the DS Lite for Diamond/Pearl, and the DSi for Black/White.

I was a bit shocked when we actually got that recent Pikachu XL, but we've been getting all the recent "new generation limited consoles" (for lack of a better term), so it'd be odd if we missed this one.

I do hope that blue XL does get an NA release. My cousin is wanting a 3DS for the new Pok?mon games and said he'd buy mine if I decided to sell. I've been waiting for a reason to buy a new XL, so I'll see.

The games are being released October 12th worldwide so I don't see the issue with region lock...

Probably because it would suck to own a 3DS you would only play one game on, even if it is all gold and shiny.

Because the xl costs more, So of course they will find ways to promote it so more people will get it.

For the sake of everyone else (I am pretty content with my Cosmo Black 3DS), can you please release the gold XL Nintendo? Why does it have to stay a Japan exclusive?

Although now that I look at it, they don't look half bad. I might want the blue one myself... Does anyone know if I can transfer the preloaded X and Y to my 8 gig SDHC card?

I wasn't thinking of getting a 3ds xl anytime soon because to me the only benefit is the bigger screen, and 3ds regular's screen is big enough for me, but that blue bundle made me want an xl.

'His is beautiful. I'll upgrade if it comes to Europe to replace my broken 3DS, I don't really mind if the game comes pre-installed since I could just get a physical copy of the opposite version of the game.

Also the blue looks a lot more colbat and metallic.

This is one situation where the game being pre-installed doesn't bother me, since it's basically tied to the system. But I'll probably buy the physical copy of the opposite version anyway.

I think yes, Eu/US should get bundled versions of the game, especially limited edition. Infact, I would love to see an exclusive limited edition pokemon 3dsXL for all the different regions, like gold, silver, bronze, copper, etc

Well even if they get released outside of Japan i bet that once again Australia/New Zealand would miss out on them, as so far we have missed out on all but one of the limited editions. We only ever got the Zelda Ocarina of Time model.

Nintendo isn't very good at releasing limited edition bundles outside Japan. NA has gotten quite a few more bundles, but Nintendo won't even give us basic colors, such as the white 3DS. It's sad to hear that Australia and New Zealand face the same problems that we all do.

Yeah, that's is really disappointing for those who live AU and NZ. Hopefully we can urge Nintendo to stop making some things Japan exclusive and urge them to release their products to other regions.

That gold one... Sheesh. It's beautiful. Such detail...

I respect that it's exclusive, but it's a shame we won't be able to see it around more because of its rarity.
