Those of you looking for the latest Pokemon X and Y news may not like this piece of information that we have for you. Over the last few months we have been telling you about certain Pokemon X and Y events that are exclusive to Japan.
Now though, we can tell you that Game Freak’s home country is getting even more Pokemon goodness this year. It has just been revealed that purchasing a new 3DS LL (XL) console in Japan will score consumers with a free copy of Pokemon X and Y.
There’s no catch whatsoever either. Simply buy the console and you’ll get a retail voucher which you can redeem online from Nintendo’s store. The only criteria that you need to know is that this offer is valid all throughout June.
It goes without saying that it would be rather nice if the same offer would apply to Pokemon fans in the UK or US. We are willing to bet that 3DS XL hardware sales in US and UK would increase significantly if Nintendo decided to promote the offer with let’s say – a Reggie ‘My body is ready’ commercial.
As it stands though, it’s Japan only yet again. Let us know your thoughts on this and whether you would consider buying a 3DS (presuming you don’t have one) if this offer for a free copy of Pokemon X and Y were available in your area.
Japan always gets the good stuff.
