Nintendo is in the midst
of its regular holiday push of all its consoles, with the 3DS and DSi XL
available in festive new colors and game bundles. European fans have their
choice of color (or colour) for a new 3DS, and with it one of two games; across
the pond US customers get to pick between two new bundles for the slower but
good-natured, great-with-kids DSi XL.
Launching 18 November in
European stores, the Ice White 3DS bundle comes with Super Mario 3D Land, which
it's fair to say we are anticipating somewhat eagerly. Alternatively, the Coral Pink model comes
with the popular nintendogs + cats, because girls like pets and pink is girls'
favorite color, obviously.
US customers also get new
bundles, with the DSi XL available in new Metallic Rose and Midnight Blue hues.
Both come with the gender-neutral Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem, and
will be available from Nov 6 at $169 RRP. Buy one for the awkward, androgynous
child in your extended circle of friends – or, if that child happens to be you,
look forward to some plus-sized puzzle-platforming this Christmas.
