All the 3DS XL games and Pokemon Sun & Moon fans out there here is a piece of good news for you to make whoopee. Nintendo of Europe has now confirmed that it’ll be launching a limited edition New 3DS XL and ‘Fan Edition’ SteelBooks with the game. Read on for details.
Isn’t it intriguing? We bet it is, especially for all those die-hard fans of the game series.
Pokémon Sun and Moon is indeed the biggest release heading to the 3DS this year, with both iterations about to combine for some striking sales numbers. To make the release an even larger affair amongst the game buffs, Nintendo of Europe has now announced that it’ll be bringing some special edition. The 3DS XL features the legendary Pokemon from Sun & Moon, Solgaleo and Lunala in a black and white art. There is a catch. These 3DS XL games are only limited to Europe so far. Pokemon Sun and Moon are the upcoming Generation VII Pokemon games.
Both versions will also be getting two Steelbooks of separate designs. Pokemon Sun featuring Solgaleo and Pokemon Moon featuring Lunala. The edition is called ‘Fan Edition’. However, the company has yet to announce the pricing for these SteelBooks, Gearnuke reports.
According to Nintendo life, a Solgaleo and Lunala Limited Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL was recently out in Japan. But the Japan version won’t contain any game copies. This means it’s likely to be hardware-only. One can have a look at the limited edition 3DS XL games here. The site also displays the images of the ‘Fan Editions’ of Pokemon Sun and Moon.
The new entries in the long-running series will witness players venture to the Aloha Region in Hawaii Island. Now the fans in the region will catch brand new Pokemon on a tropical island to become the Pokemon Champion. Does the news excite you?

Nintendo will be launching Pokemon Sun and Moon 3DS XL and SteelBooks with the game on November 18 this year.
