Nintendo confirms Legend of Zelda Black Friday 3DS XL Bundle for $150

The deal is currently only at Target and only on Black Friday.

Getting a standard 3DS XL for $150 is a pretty good deal, but Nintendo revealed today that you can do one better. Target will be offering the special edition Zelda 3DS XL bundle with a copy of A Link Between Worlds for that same price on Black Friday.

GameSpot gave the game a 9 earlier this month and GameSpot editor Tom McShea called it the "best Zelda in years" in the video below. If you've been on the fence over whether to pick up October's highest selling console (and you're willing to risk the infamous Black Friday crowds), this is the time to pick one up.

And if you're looking for more Black Friday deals, check out rundown of the best Black Friday video game deals.

Wait, that's not even true. Target specified that the sale doesn't include the Zelda bundle. It only applies for plain 3DS XL consoles (black, white, red, blue), which is still a great deal, but a bit less exciting.

I have this, it's cool. But I'm little surprised how uncomfortable 3ds even the xl model is to play. My hands start hurting just about after one hour of game play. Same happens with my left hand when using 360 controller on my PC. Buttons are just too close of the edge of the machine, just like the left stick on 360 controller, the reason why I prefer PS controller over anything else, it's more comfortable for me.

Nintendo is going to make TONS of money with the 3ds this year.

what does this normally cost?

Considering that the regular 3DS sale on Amazon yesterday lasted about 5 seconds until it was sold out, this one might as well not be real since there's no way I'll be able to get one.

Why didn't they announce a Wii U bundle with 3D world?

Almost mad. I got the same deal on a 3DS xl with mario kart 7 so I guess I can't complain too much.  If you've been waiting to get one, this is a fantastic deal.

That's freaking lazy. That's the exact same design my DS Lite had when I bought the Hourglass DS bundle years back. Looks ugly on 3DS XL. Why couldn't they done a new design and print a shield and sword or something else creative like what they did with the Pokemon X and Y?

Stretching out that old design is just dumb. But at least you get a good deal either way. I got no game when I bought my limited edition Pokemon 3DS XL at 200+tax.

I would do this if they had 1 that was solid gold, or if I could get a black 3DS for a similar deal

Is that deal also food for canada's targets ? The only black friday deal they got on target.ca so far is the luigi's mansion bundle.

@Tiwill44 Man, it is true, just bought mine! hurray! Zelda 4ever!

@themc_7 Amazon.com has it at $252 although  you can probably find it cheaper.

@DiscGuru101 This will be sold out before 1am, and being a limited edition that will have been out a week, some stores might not even have any in stock when the store opens for Black Friday.

@Xenro4 Same here.

$99, and games look much better on it. If the 3DS XL had a resolution that matched the 2DS size-wise instead of just stretching it out to fit the screen I would get it instead.

@telaros That's not the same design at all, the back of the 3DS is black and there's a dark, inverted triforce on it. It matches the game's logo.

eelektrik

@telaros Actually its quite awesome and matches the logo of the game with the top half of the outside case being gold with a gold Triforce and the bottom half being black with a black Triforce on it, though you can't see that in the picture on the box.

@robbiejones Scoring a 3DS AND your first Zelda game? What I would give to experience the gaming feels that are heading your way. It's a solid entry in the series, a great nod to classic Zelda of the past with some new twists. Have fun!

@BradBurns Yea im a big Zelda fan too, but I'm not about to get a triforce tatttoo'd on my body, nor do I want it on my 3DS..

It is it all started a very long time ago when slave owner Jim Bob Johnson opened a store that was failing so he started overcharging the free blacks so the whites could save money. The racism behind it ended after Jim Bob's son started selling flesh colored paint to slaves costing his dad to go on a rampage killing the whole family. Jk it's actually just an accounting term when stores try to make a profit and turn red ink into black ink.

@rafastv

Oh, nevermind. Canada sucks. Here we get a shitty Luigi's Mansion regular 3DS bundle instead. For the same price. Fuck.

@BrutalPandaX2 @themc_7  And that's $70 less to spend on 2 extra games, like fire emblem and super Mario 3d land or whatever you like. this is one great deal. don't let it go.

@HowlPendragon I never imagined I would get a positive reply. Yeah that's part of the reason for me. I think I'll like the way it fits my hands better too. Never liked 3d effect anyway.

Lol yeah cyber Monday was the day the robots revolted and killed humans. All except John Carter who borrowed a Deloren from his pal Marty traveled back in time to cheapen robotic self esteem so the revolt doesn't happen.
