Get a Limited-Edition New 3DS for $100 on Black Friday
Black and white models featuring Mushroom Kingdom characters will be available.
Nintendo announced today that it will offer the New Nintendo 3DS for only $100 on Black Friday. That's the lowest-ever official MSRP for the handheld device.
Two new models will be offered for that price on November 25. One is black and the other is white, and both feature Mushroom Kingdom characters and imagery on the case. Characters like Mario, Luigi, and Toad are seen on the system, along with bob-ombs, piranha plants, and coins, among other things.
Note that these are not the XL variants of the New Nintendo 3DS but rather the regular-size model. Additionally, there is no pack-in game. The deal begins on Black Friday at retailers across the United States. No end-date for the offer was announced.
The New Nintendo 3DS normally sells for $150 in a bundle that comes with Super Mario 3D Land. The New 3DS XL, meanwhile, goes for $200.
This is the first we're hearing of Black Friday deals for Nintendo hardware. If you're looking for a new PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, numerous retailers will offer the systems (in bundles that include games) for $250 instead of $300.
In other news about the 3DS, Nintendo has said it does not think the Nintendo Switch console--a mobile/hybrid device--will cannibalize 3DS sales.
