Nintendo Debuts New DS Colors, Bundles For Black Friday
Nintendo of America plans to release two new limited-edition Nintendo DS Lite bundles on November 28th, the day following Thanksgiving.
The Mario Red Nintendo DS bundle includes a red DS lite branded with a Mario "M," and a copy of New Super Mario Bros., originally released May 2006.
The Ice Blue Nintendo DS bundle comes with an Ice Blue DS Lite, a custom system case, and a copy of Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day, which released in April 2006. Both products are priced at $149.99.
This will mark the second year in a row that Nintendo has debuted system bundles on "Black Friday." In 2007, the company released gold and metallic rose DS Lites with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Nintendogs, respectively.
The Ice Blue edition of the DS Lite has been available in Japan since the system's launch in March 2006, but with the exception of a limited release in Australia, that system color has not left the country.
"Nintendo DS is both the most affordable and the most popular video game system in this generation," says Nintendo of America's EVP of Sales and Marketing Cammie Dunaway. "These limited-edition bundles make great gifts for first-time Nintendo DS players and collectors alike."
