Pikachu is by far one of the most iconic Pokemon in the series, and fans of the yellow, electric mouse can look forward to the release of the Pikachu themed New 2DS XL when it launches later this month.

The yellow, handheld exuberates Pikachu’s look with a close-up of the Pokemon’s cheery face, including rosy red cheeks and brown accents. Like the other members of the 2DS family, the model will not offer any kind of 3D capabilities, but it will feature the amiibo scanning and C-stick that have become so popular on the New 3DS line-up. The Pikachu New 2DS XL will launch on January 26, and will be available for Nintendo fans at a cost of just $160 or £117.
