Many of you will remember that, during an edition of Nintendo news service Nintendo Direct at the start of October it was revealed that the special edition Pikachu 3DS XL console which was released in Japan earlier this year, would be making its way to the UK before the end of the year. This morning gaming magazine Official Nintendo Magazine finally confirmed the date the console will launch on. It has been revealed that the console is due for release on the 7th of December, just in time for Christmas.
Do remember that the console is a limited edition and as such there won't be that much stock of it, so if you wish to get your hands on one you best be quick!
