Everyone gearing up to stuff their faces this Thanksgiving weekend? Well, don’t eat too much, because you might want to venture outside at some point and take advantage of some deals Nintendo has coming up for the Wii U and 3DS. Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, laid everything all out on the dining room table with these words:
“This year, there is a dizzying amount of affordable Nintendo options for any holiday shopper looking to stock up on fun gifts for family and friends. And if there is ever a question of why shoppers should choose Wii U and Nintendo 3DS this holiday season, the answer is simple: Because it’s Nintendo.”
Can’t argue with that logic! Let’s see what plentiful bounty awaits us in the coming days:
Luigi 3DS Goodness – various outlets will have a SEXY Cobalt Blue Nintendo 3DS system that comes installed with one of my faves, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, for $169.99 on November 28th.
2DS For Cheap – Walmart is going to be selling the 3D-less 2DS for $99.96 on the 28th of November.
3DS XL Deal – Target will sell the 3DS XL for $149.99 on the BLACKEST OF FRIDAYS.
Digital Delights – there are character-themed discounts going on in the eShop on the 3DS and Wii U right now, which you can learn about here.
A Green Pack-In – Nintendo Land for the Wii U will come bundled with a Luigi Wii Remote Plus for $59.99 on December 2nd (which I need for my Salsa dancing on Wii Fit U).
Why wait a couple of more days for savings, though? Check out what Nintendo discounts you can enjoy RIGHT NOW:
A Turkey-Sized Bundle – gamers can pick up a Wii U with both New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U on one jam-packed disc for $299.99.
Exercise For Free (Almost. Practically. Kind of.) – this one I have already taken advantage of: if you purchase a Wii U Fit Meter pedometer for $19.99, and download the Wii Fit U trial through the eShop, and then sync said pedometer to the game, you unlock it for free. This is only good until the end of January, so hop to it!
HD Wii Sports – players can download a demo of Wii Sports Club and play tennis or bowling (the only sports available at the moment) for a full day. Once the trial ends, gamers can purchase a Day Pass for $1.99 to play any available sport for a day (which will include baseball, boxing, and golf in the coming months) or spend $9.99 on each sport they desire to keep it forever.
