Nintendo of Japan has certainly pioneered the art of selling the very same hardware over and over again to the same customer just because it comes in a special limited edition design from time to time. And by design, I do not mean a change in the hardware mould, but rather, new livery or color has been introduced. Well, we have seen our fair share of different Nintendo 3DS XL versions in the past, and here we are now with the chance to pick up a limited edition Pokémon-themed 3DS XL, where you can do so simply by attending a football match in Japan.
Do bear in mind that football here refers to soccer as understood by those of us living in the US. Nintendo is the one behind this opportunity for fans to pick up one of three limited edition Pokémon-themed 3DS XL systems at Yokohama F. Marinos, Urawa Red Diamonds, and FC Tokyo J-League matches, and depending on the number of systems made available, that will strictly be based on the home side’s score.
Football is not a high scoring game, but it is nevertheless exciting as evident by those last minute exploits, or even brilliant individual runs. Each of the 3DS XL system will feature identical Pokémon artwork with the respective club name of the home side on the base. Of course these will be extremely rare in due time, and ought to be able to fetch a handsome price in online auction sites.
