If that fancy new gold Zelda-themed 3DS XL bundle wasn’t enough to make you part with your precious rupees, then maybe this snazzy silver Mario Bros. package will have you breaking bricks in search of coins. Spotted at Walmart, this unannounced bundle comes with a pre-installed copy of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and is expected to go on sale on December 2nd. No word on pricing just yet, but we wouldn’t expect anything south of $200.

    Because I don’t own a 3DS, now is the perfect time to pick out a cool one… But I am so broke…

    • Fred

      Oh man, don’t miss out. You might consider your options to see if there’s a way to get the money together

  • Lord Tywin

    I’ve always wanted a silver 3DS XL. The Mario & Luigi graphic on the top looks really nice. However, I am loving my gold Zelda 3DS XL.

  • CEObrainz

    Man…the choices are so good, if they ever brought out a purple Majora’s Mask themed handheld I think I’d never be able to get a console cos I’d want them all.

    Nintendo sure knows how to cash crop. Makes me worried a little how they keep doing these special editions like this.

  • Ducked

    Pikachu 3DS XL
    Animal Crossing 3DS XL
    Pokemon X 3DS XL
    Pokemon Y 3DS XL
    A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL

    And now this.

      You forgot the Luigi 3DS XL. Even if it is ugly.

      • Ducked

        I was going by North America :p

    • The Clockwork Being

      Better make some Wii U custom designs.

      • Ducked

        That would be awesome. It seems like Nintendo is against different designs for home consoles for some reason.

  • In my opinion:
    Almost all special 3DS XL versions < Golden Zelda 3DS XL. I'm so happy with the Golden one 🙂 Only a super cool Metroid 3DS XL would separate me from my Golden 3DS XL edition, and even then I'll probably keep both 😀

    Edit: I actually traded in my Silver 3DS XL for the golden Zelda one albeit the silver one I had was just that, silver no artworks on it, in Europe we can't buy the black one, instead we can buy a silver one, my cousin is very happy with my old silver 3DS XL and me with the golden one.

      At least you kept it in the family. Lol. I have a turquoise 3DS and a red 3DSXL. Two systems which I would never part with. And I’ll tell you if a Really nice Metroid 3DS popped up I would definitely be purchasing one.

      go die in hell. My target had none.

      • Dude we don’t even HAVE Target in Europe, at least not in the Netherlands. The Golden 3DS’s have also been sold out day one in the Netherlands, and likely in all of Europe, all have been pre-ordered or sold on release date (the few that where not pre-ordered). Same goes for PS4 in the Netherlands, they are also sold out, and I don’t have one, because I didn’t pre-order my ps4 so I’m the one to blame for that as I didn’t pre-order. Luckily I DID pre-order the Zelda 3DS.

        But that gives you no reason to get all aggressive, if you wanted it so badly you should have PREORDERED like I did.

        Anyway, I should go die in Hell? No thanks I’ve been there was terribly borded so I came back.

          You can still buy the golden Zelda 3DS XL bundle. Just check or

          • I didn’t check online for it, I was referring to retailers, where it’s for now no longer available, maybe a new stock comes in soon though. Personally I prefer to buy games and consoles/handhelds in retail stores, one in General I always buy my stuff.

            Maybe that’s a good suggestion though for mister Cahone up above thataway ^ who went crazy over the fact I got the Golden 3DS, and his local target didn’t sell it/was outsold, if he wants it so badly he can order one from, not sure if budget gaming ships to NA, but bol probably does. He does have to use a Pal version then 😉

  • Angelo G
