New Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition Coming This Month

This past weekend, Nintendo announced a few cool pieces of news. One is that the goofy crime-solving game Detective Pikachu is finally coming to the US, and the company also revealed this cool new Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition to coincide with that news. Pokefans are going to want to get this rosy-cheeked limited edition, since they love to catch them all.

This new portable console will be making its way to North America on January 26, and will sell for $159.99. You can pre-order it from GameStop right now. It should be a hot collectible since it will be one of the last hardware revisions for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS family. Plus, it looks like Pikachu obviously. They won’t last long, I’m sure. And with Detective Pikachu on the way, people are extra excited for all things Pikachu. So if you want one, you better hurry up and claim one while you still can.

McDonalds Japan Gets Pikachu McFlurry: Tooth Decay, I Choose You!

If you live in Japan or will be visiting soon, you might want to stop by McDonalds to get your mitts on this new Pokémon-themed McFlurry treat. The dessert appears to be vanilla ice cream swirled with chocolate and banana flavors.

The colors remind of Pikachu, but I don’t think the electrifying little Pokémon would taste like bananas and chocolate. The limited-edition McFlurry comes in a Pikachu cup, with six versions showing different Pikachu emotions.

The Pikachu treat goes on sale July 14 and won’t be coming outside of Japan. There is no evidence that the McFlurry will electrocute you when you eat it, so enjoy!
