Today is a good day. Everything is good.
It was revealed earlier this morning, during the Pokémon Direct, that the two new special edition Pokémon 3DS XLs will be coming to North America and Europe on September 27.
There will be a red one and a blue one. Both will have an MSRP of $199.99. The hardware will feature the flagship Pokémon from Pokémon X and Y.
It was confirmed at an earlier date that Japan will be getting this same blue 3DS XL Pokémon hardware, as well as a special gold version with a different design. The Red version, announced today, has the same artwork as the blue hardware and currently appears exclusive to Western markets.
Pokémon X and Y will be released worldwide on October 12, 2013.
