The two bundles--a Mario Red DS with New Super Mario Bros., and an Ice Blue DS with Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day--will sell for $149.99 each. The Mario package will also include the portly plumber's familiar "M" logo on the front of the casing, whereas the Brain Age system includes a special carrying case in lieu of a logo.
Both systems will debut on November 28, the day after Thanksgiving in the US and an annual shopping event that signals the start of the holiday-shopping season. Nintendo launched a similar Black Friday initiative last year, with DS bundles for Nintendogs and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Word of those bundles also leaked well before their official unveiling.
