Pre-order bonus GameCube skin

Nintendo of America has announced a bonus gift for Americans pre-ordering Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness- a GameCube skin featuring characters from the game such as Dark Lugia, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.

Nintendo will also be selling a limited edition bundle that includes a GameCube, controller, Pokémon XD game, and Gale of Darkness faceplate. No price has been announced for this set as of Tuesday.

The bonus for American pre-orders is different than that received by their Japanese counterparts. Japanese players will receive a special "triple changing sticker" which features the game's protagonist, Dark Lugia, and Eevee and its five possible evolutions. It appears that this sticker changes its image when turned.
