New 3DS bundles for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Xenoblade Chronicles 3D are coming to Europe on June 26.
Each of the bundles come with: A New 3DS, the original system’s cover plates, an additional set of cover plates with game-related art, and a free game-related Home menu theme.
Of course, the bundles also come with their respective games. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire come pre-installed, while Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is a physical copy (presumably because the game would fill up the 4GB Micro SD card included with the system).

Now that the soundtracks for all the past Pokémon games are on iTunes, it’s time to add the new stuff, which is, ironically, just remakes of stuff from the past.
You can now pick up the Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire: Super Music Collection on iTunes for $9.99. At 160 tracks, that’s about 16 cents per trumpet!
