Well, this is pretty self-explanatory. Remember how Nintendo bundled a Pearl Pink 3DS exclusively with nintendogs + cats: French Bulldog & Friends? Well, starting February 10, it’ll be available separately. Just in time for Valentine’s Day– it’s no bouquet of roses, for sure, but with a 3DS, you can draw a bouquet of roses in SwapNote! Or take a 3D picture of one! Or … we’re out of ideas.

Unfortunately, it’s not a Kirby edition, no matter how much you want it.

Anyone thinking about getting this color? Or are you still waiting for another limited edition? Full press release after the break!
