You’re going to want to put off buying a 3DS over the next few weeks. Two new bundles have just been confirmed, thanks to a leaked GameStop Black Friday ad. They’re a Luigi’s Mansion 3DS bundle and that The Legend of Zelda 3DS XL bundle just announced for Europe.
We aren’t getting that special Luigi 3DS, with all the green Luigi silhouettes dancing around. The Luigi’s Mansion 3DS bundle includes a blue, standard 3DS. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is also already installed on the system. That bundle costs $169.99, the same price as a standard 3DS.
The The Legend of Zelda 3DS XL bundle is more attractive, but also more expensive. It comes in at $219.99. That’s $20 more than a standard 3DS XL. However, you get a special 3DS model with a gold top and the Tri-Force etched onto the front and back of the system. You also get a downloaded copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the latest portable Zelda game.
Though the GameStop Black Friday ad is the only one showing the Luigi’s Mansion and The Legend of Zelda 3DS XL at the moment, I’m sure they won’t be the only store with these specials. The Nintendo holiday bundles always appear in limited quantities at every major retailer. Your best bet is to keep in mind which one you want, then scour all of the ads prior to Black Friday 2013. Though the GameStop prices seem decent, you may be able to find one or both of these bundles for less soon.
