On Monday, Nintendo announced an exclusive version of the Nintendo 3DS would go on sale on Black Friday. For one day, people will be able to buy the handheld console from different retailers for $99.99.
Nintendo of America’s Doug Bowser said the company would offer some of the best gifts for the holiday shopping season in the United States. In addition to cheap new systems, Nintendo also has a lot of games in stock.
Contrary to speculations, the Japanese company does not expect its upcoming handheld/home hybrid console will impact on 3DS sales.
What are Nintendo’s offers for Black Friday 2016?
Once customers have bought the Nintendo 3DS, they can choose between a massive library of games.
Gamers can pick classics such as Super Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and many others. They can also turn to recently released titles like Mario Party Star Rush as well as Yo-kai Watch 2.
If that is not enough, fans can wait for the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon (November 18), and Super Mario Maker (December 2).
Next in line are a new Pikmin game, Ever Oasis and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King due to hit stores in 2017.
There are more holiday game recommendations, special offers, bundles, and discounts, too. To know every single one of them, shoppers should visit Nintendo’s official Holiday Gift Guide.
Nintendo 3DS Black Friday price
The limited edition of the new Nintendo 3DS will have two models: one black and one white. Both of them will feature Mushroom Kingdom characters and imagery like Mario, Luigi, Toad, bob-ombs, piranha plants, and coins.
Nintendo will begin offering the two models for $99.99 starting on November 25 at retailers across the US. The company did not disclose when the offer will end. The duo is regular-size 3DS systems, not XL variants.
Usually, the new Nintendo 3DS sells for $150 in a bundle featuring Super Mario 3D Land. Meanwhile, the new Nintendo 3DS XL costs $200.
Aside from Nintendo hardware, the new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will also have Black Friday deals. Several retailers will sell the systems for $250 instead of $300. Unlike the 3DS, the PS4 and Xbox One will both come with games bundles.
