Nintendo 3DS XL Mario Kart Bundle Revs Up for the Holidays


Bundles, bundles, and yes, more bundles. This holiday season, like others before it, is full of them, because nothing says Merry Christmas like a game and video game machine all snuggled up together inside the same package.

Nintendo’s already offered one 3DS bundle for Black Friday, but this next one pairs the extra-large 3DS with a completely different Mario game.

Starting December 2nd, $199.99 will get you a Blue/Black Nintendo 3DS XL system pre-installed with a digital copy of Mario Kart 7, the excellent kart racer which updates the series with aerial gliders, underwater racing, kart upgrades and sparkly 3D effects.

Read our Mario Kart 7 review from last holiday season to see why you’ll want to take it for a spin, whether bought separately or in this shiny new bundle.
