Pokémon fans will be getting a jolt of excitement when Nintendo releases the Pikachu Edition Nintendo 3DS XL on March 24.  This yellow Nintendo 3DS XL hardware features a familiar outline of the iconic Pokémon mascot de facto.  The system also comes packaged with a 4GB SD memory card and will be available while supplies last at a suggested retail price of $199.99.

On the same day, gamers will find the new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity game for 3DS.  While playing as one of five popular Pokémon, players travel through a near-infinite amount of randomly generated Mystery Dungeons, battle and recruit other Pokémon and collect hidden treasure.  The game is available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS and includes the ability to discover Magnagates - entrances to new dungeons - by scanning everyday circular objects with the Nintendo 3DS Camera.  Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity carries a suggested retail price of $34.99.

Furthermore, Nintendo is offering a special bonus to those who buy both a Nintendo 3DS XL system and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.  Anyone who registers a Nintendo 3DS XL system and either Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon with Club Nintendo between March 21 and April 30 will receive a code to download one of five Nintendo 3DS games for free: Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D, or Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!.
