All Articles: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!

Metallic Rose, Midnight Blue DSi XL bundles coming November 6

While the 3DS will be the hot handheld this holiday season (for those of us not holding off until the Slide Pad is integrated into a 3DS2), Nintendo is still pushing the DSi XL. In fact, they’ve announced two new colors for the jumbo-sized portable: Metallic Rose and Midnight Blue.

As you can see from the box art above, both bundles will include a copy of Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, as well as a trio of pre-installed titles: Brain Age Express Math, Brain Age Express Arts & Letters, and Photo Clock.

The bundles will be available on November 6 at a price of $169.99 apiece.

Nintendo DS Lite price drops to $99.99; Mario games “go red”

The Nintendo DS Lite is getting a price cut down to $99.99, making it ridiculously affordable. If there are any people left on this planet without a DS – aside from Jack Tretton – they should seriously consider this the best time to hop in with both feet. All five of the people without a DS already, that is.

On top of that, Nintendo will also be changing the packaging of six of the Mario games that “represent some of the best-selling fan-favorite Nintendo DS games of all time.” The games will now come in red packaging, making them easy to identify. Those six games are:

  • Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story
  • Mario Kart DS
  • Mario Party DS
  • Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!
  • New Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario 64 DS

No word on whether or not the red packaging will also come with a price drop as well. As for me, well, I’ve got a DS… and a DS Lite… and a DSi… errr, and a 3DS. But if there was any way I could get this beauty for $99.99, I would do it in a heartbeat.
