Pokémon New 3DS Cover Plate Pre-Orders Open On Nintendo Official UK Store


The Nintendo Official UK Store is now taking pre-orders for the Pokémon-themed New Nintendo 3DS cover plates.

Fans can choose between Cover Plate 30, which has a colourful design filled with the playable creatures that appear in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, and Cover Plate 31 which is densely detailed with coloured sprite artwork taken from Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version.

Each are priced at £12.99, with Cover Plate 30 releasing on February 19th, and Cover Plate 31 arriving over a week later on February 27th.

As part of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary plans, four Nintendo 2DS Special Edition bundles will also see release in transparent red, blue or yellow – each pre-installed with either Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue or Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition.

These will release at retail across Europe on Saturday 27th February, coinciding with the Game Boy titles being relaunched on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console service.
