    Believe it or not this will sell A LOT of wii u consoles in japan.

  • $18114340

    It’s a perfect match for the system. The peripherals are even backwards-compatible. Too bad the system also happens to be region-locked…

    Blast! I got so excited when I saw the pic: been waiting eagerly for a Vita version.
    I liked the DS ones a lot for the touch, but I also really loved the PSP ones for the crisper colors. Now with the Vita it can be the best of both worlds— so where the heck is it?!!
