Pokemon X and Y 3DS XL bundles revealed for Japan

Pokemon X and Y are the first games in the series to appear on Nintendo 3DS, so Nintendo will provide two charming system bundles to get trainers up to speed. Official Nintendo Magazine grabbed the first pictures of the twin 3DS XL systems: the above Xerneas and Yveltal Blue Edition, and the below Pokemon-center-exclusive Premium Gold Edition.

(Even Steve Jobs eventually came around to putting logos upside down on Macbooks--so they appear right-side up when in use--so what gives with these otherwise cool designs, Satoru Iwata?)

Both editions will come with the system, a 4GB SDHC card, and a copy of either X or Y for ¥22,000 ($220). The bundles are only confirmed for release in Japan on October 12, but we hope Nintendo sees fit to release them elsewhere.
