Nintendo to Launch Yellow Pikachu DS in Japan

After announcing the Ice Blue Nintendo DS for Australia, Nintendo has decided to come out with a yellow DS. The Pickachu-themed handheld console will only be available in Japan. It is a special edition DS, so it is going to be hard for gamers to get their hands on the handheld.

To buy the yellow Nintendo DS, gamers will have to first go to one of the five Pokémon Centers in Japan between June 1, 2007 and July 1, 2007. They will have to fill out forms which will then give them a chance to buy the yellow DS. The winners will be informed via mail if they have won the chance to buy the Pickachu-themed handheld console.

The Nintendo DS Lite Pikachu Edition is priced at 16,800 yen (approx. Rs. 5600). But I have a feeling that most of these yellow handhelds will end up on online auctioning sites!
