As if we were already excited about the release of Pokemon X and Y this October, during a Nintendo Direct announcement this morning, Nintendo has confirmed that September 27TH, they are releasing two special edition Nintendo 3DS XLs, one read, the other blue in honor of Pokemon X and Y. Nintendo these are too, too sexy :
Along with this great news, Nintendo confirmed a Pokemon bank, which is used to hold 3000 Pokemon. It’s essentially an app for the Nintendo 3DS, that will allow you to deposit pokemon from Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 and transfer to Pokemon X and Y. This way, you won’t NEED another 3DS to transfer your Pokemon to Pokemon X and Y. The only catch: it’s a $5 annual fee. Yes only $5 bucks a year. The icing on the cake though is, the return of the original trio, Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur! Here’s a beautiful video of the recently announced MEGA evolutions , Mega Charizard, Mega Venusaur and Mega Blastoise:

If you had any doubts whatsoever that Nintendo lost their shit after making the Nintendo 2DS, this should surely put Nintendo back in your good graces.
