The week of Thanksgiving video game festivities continues along as we enter the Mushroom Kingdom, where Nintendo treats its fans to 2DS, 3DS, and Wii U sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Yahoo!

These are the deals you can jump on like a Goomba now:

A Mario and Luigi Thanksgiving: A new Mario and Luigi Wii U Deluxe Set that comes packaged with both New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Luigi U games on one disc is now available at the low suggested retail price of $299.99.

Burn Off Those Thanksgiving Calories for Free: Running through the end of January, Wii U owners who also own a Wii Balance Board accessory can download a monthlong trial version of the full Wii Fit U game for free on Nintendo eShop. Users can keep Wii Fit U for as long they like by purchasing and syncing a Fit Meter accessory. A Fit Meter has many features of modern activity meters and is available at a suggested retail price of only $19.99.

Compete with Wii Sports Club: There is nothing more fun than playing a round of tennis or bowling with family and friends in Wii Sports Club, now available as individual downloads exclusively in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. In the coming months, Wii Sports Club will include three other sports from the original Wii Sports – baseball, boxing and golf. All sports feature HD graphics, enhanced controls and new features, such as community clubs. With a broadband Internet connection, players can be registered to state or regional clubs and will be able to send messages to one another via Miiverse during matches. With the addition of online multiplayer, users can even play Wii Sports Club with family members that can’t make it home for the holidays. Wii U owners who download Wii Sports Club will get a free trial pass that will let them play any available sports for a 24-hour period from when the Wii Sports Club game was started. Once the trial period ends, players can purchase a Day Pass for $1.99 in the Nintendo eShop to play all available sports for a 24-hour period, or can buy permanent access to individual sports for $9.99 each.
