Special Edition Pokemon 2DS consoles heading to the UK

2016 is the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon, don't you know? And part of the celebration sees three Special Edition 2DS making their way to the UK.

Three systems will be released on February 27th, one each of which will be based on Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red and Pokemon Yellow. Each will come with the Virtual Console version of its respective release pre-installed.

Also in the box is a sticker sheet and a code to download a relevant theme.

Existing 2DS or 3DS owners will also be able to download the games on the same day. 3DS owners will also be able to choose between two themed faceplates. Prices for the consoles or the games have not yet been specified.

In North America it looks as if a different bundle is on the way. Also due on February 27th, the SKU includes a 3DS (non-XL), two alternative cover plates and both Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue pre-installed.
