3DS XL Zelda Bundle

Nintendo is gearing up for the holidays and putting together some enticing bundles of joy. Today the company announced a Zelda 3DS XL bundle that will launch in NA on November 22. The unique 3DS XL features gold-and-black coloring, a Triforce logo printed on the device, as well as a download code for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. This gorgeous handheld will be available at a suggested retail price of $219.99.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds takes place several years after the events of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. As Link, you must journey between two worlds, plunder dungeons, and save the day. Additionally, you have a new power that allows Link to become a drawing and move across walls to solve puzzles. Players are also able to buy or rent items, allowing you to explore dungeons in any order you want.

Wii U Bundles

Wii U Deluxe Mario Bundle

Last week, Nintendo announced a Wii U Deluxe Mario Bundle set to arrive in stores on November 1. The Bundle will be listed at $299 and includes New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U (expansion) on one disc.

Also announced last week was the Wii U Basic Skylanders SWAP Force Bundle available November 15, for $299.

What’s in the box?

  • White Wii U Basic system 8GB
  • Skylanders SWAP Force starter pack that includes:
    • Skylanders SWAP Force Wii U game

Those of you who have been putting your Nintendo shopping on hold will certainly want to jump on one of these three bundles this holiday season. Maybe you need a gift for a friend or loved one, or perhaps it’s time you treat yourself to something nice. I’m sure you deserve it. Either way, a shiny new Wii U or golden 3DS XL has the power to bring a smile to any kid’s face. Even if they’re a big kid like me.
