Yoshi-Themed Special Edition 3DS XL Coming March 14

Have you been looking for a Nintendo 3DS XL, and are you a fan of Yoshi? If so, you are in luck, as Nintendo is launching special edition featuring Yoshi on March 14 for an MSRP of $199.99. This system will launch alongside Yoshi’s New Island, which will be $39.99. While it would have been nice to have a bundle with the game included, at least we are still getting special editions here in the States. Also, don’t forget that if you get and register both in March, you will get a digital copy of Pokémon X or Y for free.
