Legend of Zelda Nintendo 3DS bundle confirmed for USby Steven Mostyn - Nov 21 2011, 15:14
Keen to sprinkle a little festive fairy dust on its portable product line, Japanese gaming giant Nintendo has announced a new 3DS console crafted specifically for Legend of Zelda fans.
The special edition Nintendo 3DS sports a sassy black chassis accented by distinctive golden accents that include a bold front-facing Hyrulian logo and iconic decals from prior Zelda games.
Heading for released to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Nintendo’s critically acclaimed adventure franchise, the stylish Zelda 3DS also comes with a 3D updated version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time—which is widely viewed as one of the greatest games of all time.
If you haven’t yet sampled the autostereoscopic wonders of the 3DS and perhaps have an older generation Nintendo DS, the lovely folk over at GameStop are presently offering a tempting trade-in deal.
Specifically, they’ll sell you the Zelda bundle for just $100 USD against a DSi XL, $120 USD against a standard DSi, and $130 USD against ye olde DS Lite.
Other outlets will also be selling the Zelda 3DS (including Best Buy) come the turn of Black Friday (Nov. 25), alongside a recommended retail price of $200 USD.
