Zelda 25th Anniversary Edition 3DS coming to US
[UPDATE] Nintendo confirms special $200 hardware bundles for Ocarina of Time 3D, Super Mario 3D Land to launch on Thanksgiving Day.
Nintendo of America may be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Zelda with a new 3DS, if scans of retailers' Black Friday ads are accurate. As spotted by Kotaku, scans of Best Buy and GameStop circulars for Black Friday advertise the hardware bundle as appearing on store shelves in time for the traditional post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping kickoff.
Each retailer lists a $200 regular price for the package, which includes a black 3DS with a gold Zelda Triforce design on the lid, along with a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. However, Best Buy is advertising a sale price of $180 for the package.
Link isn't the only Nintendo mascot receiving the bundled hardware treatment, as the ads also show Super Mario 3D Land packages. However, those appear to include a standard Flame Red 3DS system. (Nintendo recognized Mario's 25th anniversary last year with redesigned Wii and DSi XL bundles.)
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D launched in June and sold more than 1 million copies in its first two weeks on sale. For more on Link's revamped adventure, check out GameSpot's review.
[UPDATE 11/21]: Nintendo today confirmed both the Ocarina of Time 3D and Super Mario 3D Land bundles will launch in the US on November 24, Thanksgiving Day.
