So, I really want to buy this, but two questions:

1. Those Pika-Nipples are really bothering me and I worry that the Pikachu graphic will be too overwhelming. Anyone seen this thing in person to confirm that it looks decent?

2. Will these really be limited edition? Seem like there will be plenty to go around and not valuable in the future. Though I am bummed about not getting the Zelda one when I had the chance.

GameStop has this for pre-order for 199.99. Any chance they might lower the price before release? I know they have a lowest price guarantee.
Also wondering this. I don't have much experience with GS online, but their shipping price is pretty hefty and I don't save on tax, so unless this item is going to be hard to get, not a lot of point in ordering there.

I have it on pre-order there, but if I can just stroll into Target and grab it for 159.99 plus tax, I'm obviously going to do that instead. Smilie

Does Gamestop typically pricematch sales like this one at Target?

How limited is this bundle really? I might save it if it is. If not, just gonna open this bad boy up and trade-in the game to save up for Pokemon X/Y.
Quote from karyadi View Post :
sweet, get a free download then trade-in the game.
I don't think this comes with a game. Nowhere on the box or ad does it say it includes a game. Even if it did, it would probably be a pre-installed game like Mario Kart 7. But yeah, until I see otherwise, I'm going to assume it doesn't come with any bonus games.

Quote from Big Wang View Post :
So is this a permanent price drop?
I don't think so. The 3DS XL still shows $200 everywhere. It's just Target doing the sale for the Pikachu LE release.

Does anyone have experience buying these limited edition items from Target? Do I have to camp out for this @ this price? I wanted to buy Wreak-It-Ralph in 3D and I had to go to 3 Targets since they only got 20 in stock on its release date and each store was out of stock.

I'm in Tacoma, WA and I can't say that I've had any issue grabbing limited items from Target . Most recently, I've gotten the Tomb Raider steel book and Wreck-it Ralph 3d without issue on release day. I tend to go after I get off work though, pretty much when they first open.


I'm really thinking about get a 3DS XL now. Maybe I'll just get a skin for it if it's too loud a yellow.

Heads up found this on joystiq:

"Nintendo is also incentivizing a buy with one of the two 3DS games coming out on the same day, namely Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. If you register the Pika-portable and one of those two games before April 30, you'll receive a bonus download code for one of five 3DS games.

The five games up for grabs are Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Star Fox 64 3D, Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive, and everyone's favorite college of craft, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!"

Might look into this deal. Great deal and if anything, the resell should get about $200. I only have a 3DS original but I do want to see if I feel better with a XL.

Ugh. I've been waiting for a limited edition XL to make it stateside. I've also been waiting for another sale on the XL like when it was originally released. I just don't know if I can go with bright yellow black nips pikachu though. I'm 27, and I just don't feel like I could take this out in public (not to mention that I don't understand why they positioned the graphic like that...). That said I still have the limited edition pokemon gameboy color sitting around, but that was from when I was a little kid.

Ugh. Decisions decisions. Wait for another limited edition and sale, or jump on this one...

Nice find, but I wonder if this will be a collectible item like Zelda 3ds. Crazy prices now

I wonder if this will include the Mario Kart 3DS XL bundle?
Doubtful, but even if it did, good luck finding one in store. Hasn't that been discontinued? It was a limited edition.

Quote from pinecallado View Post :
Guys, do you think I might have a shot at price matching this at walmart for a mario kart 3ds bundle if the store has one? Big Grin
You are my hero if you can do that. Maybe if you paste a picture of the mario kart 3ds bundle over the photo in the target ad?

Quote from j3tl3 View Post :
Thanks. I think Im going to pass on the pikachu 3ds. I would like to bring the least amount of attention to myself while in public lol.
That's why you have kids. It's like a get out of jail card that allows you to buy any toy, no matter how age inappropriate. Wink

Quote from dkslblackjack View Post :
Hope the other vendors get wind of this. I want to avoid shlepping into an actual store.
Who says it won't be available online? Just set your alarm for the middle of the night on Sunday and check the website like I'm sure all the other SD'ers will...

Quote from Foladar View Post :
Fine print says: "Also in blue, red and pink"
You do not have to get nipples Pikachu edition. Are those really nipples? They're just two large black dots at the base of his head. It could be a neck bangle.

Quote from SlickDealio View Post :
Remember you can save 5% if you have a Target REDCard.

Is Amazon going to sell this and it is likely they match Target's price?

Why is this in Deal Talk?
This is a slickdeal with the red card. Should be free shipping too if it's available online.

Quote from Heat6Jones View Post :
How long will it take to get approved for that red card? 10 days perhaps?
I know online it's instantaneous if you sign up for paperless statements. Otherwise, you have to wait 'til you get the card in the mail.

Quote from thejman563 View Post :
Is this in-store only or can we get this online too?
See my response above. When in doubt, set your alarm.

Quote from hzafary View Post :
This is an amazing deal.

Let's keep an eye out and see if these bundles get discounted:

3DS Red with Mario 3d Land: Possibly $129.99
3DS XL with Mario Kart: Possibly $159.99

I would have to jump on these. If anyone has any answers for these bundles please share!
You might have a better chance of getting another store to price match these bundles at the Pikachu Target price...if you can find those bundles available in store anywhere.

Quote from bunnyeric View Post :
will this be available online as well?
See response above.

Online early Sunday morning is your best bet.

So my son lost his 3ds xl mario version, and I was looking around on the internet for a replacement. Saw that Amazon UK had the white version available for shipping to the US. Thought I would be all cool and get the white version no one else has. When I got it, it said on the box it was region locked for Europe. Really? Really Nintendo, it's necessary to region lock a portable video game console? Anyways, sent it back, my son found his mario kart 3ds xl bundle, pikachu version is going on sale in the U.S., which is just about as cool as having a white version, I guess. Only thing that sucks is Pikachu doesn't come with a game pre-installed. What's up with that? A limited edition with no game included? El cheapo Nintendo...
