Nintendo Announces Pokémon Sun & Moon Legendaries 3DS XL Console for N. America

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The legendary Pokémon of Nintendo's Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Nintendo 3DS games are also getting their own New Nintendo 3DS XL console in North America. The black portable gaming console has both Solgaleo and Lunala engraved on the front and back.

The console will be released on October 28 ahead of the games' debut on November 18. It costs US$$199.99. The same design was revealed for Japanese release, along with a Pikachu design, in June.

The Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games will debut in Japan and North America on November 18, followed by Europe on November 23. The games will be available on the Nintendo 3DS worldwide in Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, and — unlike in the previous generation — Chinese (Traditional and Simplified). Players can choose their preferred language when they launch each game.

The games are also inspiring a manga adaptation by Tenya Yabuno (Inazuma Eleven, Digimon V-Tamer) titled Pokémon Horizon that will debut in the October issue of Coro Coro Comics on Thursday. A television anime series inspired by the games will premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliated stations in Japan in November.
