Pokémon: 4 Nintendo 2DS bundles in Japan, Mew distribution, more

Today, Nintendo made a rather surprising announcement… the Nintendo 2DS is coming out early next year in Japan! But it doesn’t look like it will be sold separately: it will be part of a bundle including a “physical copy” of Pokémon Green, Blue, Red or Yellow.

SpecialOn February 27th, Nintendo will release four Nintendo 2DS bundles, including:

  • a Clear Red / Blue / Green / Yellow Nintendo 2DS console, with coloured buttons

  • a “physical copy” of Pokémon Red / Green / Blue / Yellow, with all the goodies (game is pre-loaded on the 4GB SD card that comes with the console. It requires 11MB / 88 blocks)

  • a code for an exclusive Nintendo 3DS Themes (4 different in total)

    • a code to receive Mew in Pokémon Red / Blue / Green / Yellow

  • a code to receive Mew in Pokémon X / Y / Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire (redeemable until March 31st). Will also be available for players who buy Pokémon Red / Blue / Green / Yellow separately.

Those bundles will cost 9880Yen, making them some of the cheapest options for a brand new Nintendo 3DS console in Japan.

The Pokémon Company will also have a special offer: the bundle bundle will be available one day early there (in fact, it will only be sold there), and comes with an artbook and a CD with Pokémon voices.

But that’s not all… On February 27th, Nintendo will also release a special set of cover plates (#072), with artworks of the various Pokémon:

Pokémon Red / Blue / Yellow (3DS, Virtual Console) will be released on February 27th, worldwide. Pokémon Green (3DS, Virtual Console) will also be released on the same day in Japan.
