    Glad I waited.

  • DarthBrian

    Wow, this is a pretty good deal.

    Was gonna wait for Pokemon X/Y to come out to get a 3DS though. :(

  • MrRobbyM

    And now is the time I get a 3DS :D

  • Revorse

    Damn. How long will this be around? I won’t have the funds till about this time next month. I hope I can find one still.

  • new_tradition

    Holy cow, I never thought we’d see this O_O

  • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

    I may get this and grab Senran Kagura Burst

      If only region locking wasn’t a thing.

      • 新阿修羅(ShinAsura)

        Nooooooo, Japanese hardware is so expensive

    • Haku_Luvs_You

      Really want burst now after playing Shinovi versus. Just need more SK :)

  • DarthBrian

    Okay, so if I get the Pikachu 3DS XL with Mystery Dungeon and I also pick up Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, what else should I get with it. Only really looking for one more game. Thanks for any suggestions. :p

    • Tyler James Sherwood

      right now for myself i only have Mario kart 7 and KH3D. So if you like racing go for MK7. Also the new Super Smash Bros will be on both Wii U and 3DS

      • DarthBrian

        Not a Kart racing fan in general, so that’s out sorry. :(

    • Haku_Luvs_You

      Depends on what you like. For RPG fans I would recommend Fire Emblem, or some Etrian Odyssey IV. Luigis mansion is also on the way and coming out soon. What kind of genres are you into?

      • DarthBrian

        Oh yeah, Fire Emblem. Is it still hard to find in stores? :p

        I like everything except Kart racers. :p

        But RPG would be my favorite genre.

        • Haku_Luvs_You

          I think so. I only know of one place near me that has a used copy.

  • Elvick

    That thing is still ugly.
