Nintendo Sets Black Friday on Fire with Flame Red Nintendo 3DS Bundle
Starting Nov. 23, a limited-edition version of the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS will come with Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed on the system. The bundle is offered at a suggested retail price of $169.99, providing an incredible value for holiday shoppers. If purchased separately, the system and the game would be offered at suggested retail prices of $169.99 and $39.99 respectively.
Since it launched, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has sold nearly 6 million in the United States alone. The portable dual-screen system lets users see 3D images without the use of special glasses, while providing them with a wide variety of gaming and entertainment options. People can explore and purchase additional games in the Nintendo eShop, or watch the fun and funny 3D videos on Nintendo Video.
Super Mario 3D Land reinvents everything fans love about Mario gaming with the first platforming environment in true 3D. Players will experience an exhilarating new sense of depth, distance and speed while running, jumping and stomping on enemies throughout the levels. Mario can also use the tail of his Tanooki suit to swipe at enemies or float down from heights.

I haven’t touched my 3DS in months. Looking at the game lineups for it and the Vita, I think it’s pretty apparent that the dedicated handheld gaming market is dead. Way dead.
iOS and mobile have taken over.November 22, 2012 3:18 am at 3:18 am #420236
I wouldn’t mind picking one up to play the new Mario games, Resident Evil Revelations and Advance Wars 3DS if that ever happens. Plus, the backwards compatibility is nice as I have a handful of great DS games and a broken DS.
Oh, and maybe this:August 30, 2013 2:27 am at 2:27 am #420237
What the what?August 30, 2013 2:53 am at 2:53 am #420238
$130…August 30, 2013 11:50 am at 11:50 am #420239
Yeah, and a basic 3DS is $170 MSRP. Seems like a weird step down for only saving $40.
Could probably find a 3DS on sale bundled with a $40 game pretty easily.August 30, 2013 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #420240
This thing is way more slammable than a 3DS. We’re not going to make any money doing those agonizing hinge repairs on the 2DS that we did on the other DSs.August 29, 2014 1:04 pm at 1:04 pm #1037660
How Does the “New” 3DS Compare to the “Old” One?August 29, 2014 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1037668
Ooooo the white one with the colored buttons! Why isn’t this out right now so I can play this fall’s new Pokemon and Persona on it.. :(August 29, 2014 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #1037670
I’m starting to think Nintendo wants to fail. First the 2DS, and now a new 3DS that lots of consumers will assume is the existing 3DS, yet some games require the new 3DS. Let’s fragment our limited user base even more.
Yes, Iwata was a genius in the 80’s and 90’s, but now they’re basically becoming what Sega was before they kicked the bucket.
Bad decision, after bad decision, after bad decision.
That’s great that Nintendo has their “treasure chest” of money, and can afford to bleed hundreds of millions of dollars in losses on an annual basis. It’s going to catch up to them sooner or later though. All the while they’re continually pissing off their loyal, and dwindling, fan base.
Just look at the game lineup for the rest of the year for Wii U. It’s basically non-existent. Seriously Nintendo, get your shit together on every single level before you’re history.November 4, 2014 12:20 am at 12:20 am #1048926November 4, 2014 9:10 am at 9:10 am #1048940
Damn, anyone on the fence should def get that deal. Tons of backlog DS and 3DS games to play.November 5, 2014 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #1049262
For the Zelda fans out there…
