All you Japanese Baseball fans will be very interested.
Nintendo of Japan has announced that if the Hanshin Tigers, a Japanese baseball team, win the league championship a special commemorative GameCube will be released to honor the occasion. The system will be pin-striped and will sport the 2003 Champions logo. The bundle is being released as an enjoyment plus pack which includes a Game Boy Player. Included with the bundle will be the following:
- A Hanshin Tigers uniform with the Nintendo logo and the 2003 Champions logo.
- A Hanshin Tigers GameCube with a 2003 Champions logo on the lid.
- A Hanshin Tigers GameCube controller.
- A black Game Boy Player.
The bundle will retail for 27,700 Yen (about $230) and will go one sale the day after the Tigers win the championship if they win. Here are some pictures of the bundle (note that the ? circle will be replaced with the as of yet unrevealed 2003 Champions logo).
