Pink Nintendo 3DS Nintendogs bundle launching December 4

Pink Nintendo 3DS bundle

Nintendo on Monday announced that it will offer a pink Nintendo 3DS, bundled with one of two games, starting Dec. 4.

The pink 3DS will retail for $169.99 and come with one of two Nintendogs + Cats games: French Bulldog and New Friends or Toy Poodle and New Friends.

The bundle will join existing 3DS package options, just in time for the holiday season - here's a list of 'em:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword with a gold Wii Remote Plus controller and a CD with music from the series for $69.99.
  • Red Nintendo 3DS with Super Mario Land 3D for $199.99.
  • Special Edition Nintendo 3DS system with the Hyrule emblem and gold embellishments, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D game for $199.99.
  • A metallic rose or midnight blue Nintendo DSi XL system bundled with the Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! game for $169.99.

Nintendo kicked off the holiday bundle sales for Black Friday, taking about $10 off the price of the handheld console.

Nintendo said it will have special set ups in malls across the U.S. between now and Dec. 18 where shoppers can test drive Super Mario Land 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The company also promised to display "all the best video games for the holidays."

Over the summer, Nintendo dropped the price of the 3DS from $249.99 to $169.99 in the United States. According to September data from NPD Group, that price drop —as well as a similar adjustment for the PlayStation 3—helped boost sales for both consoles.

Earlier this month, NPD said Nintendo 3DS sales in October totaled more than 250,000 units for a grand total of 1.65 million sold since its March debut, though that was down slightly from the month before, when it sold 260,000.
