With the end-of-the-year holidays come end-of-the-year sales. Yay! In that spirit, Nintendo is hoping to entice you to purchase one of their plus-sized handhelds by unveiling a limited-edition 3DS XL Bundle that comes with Mario Kart 7, pre-installed. Folks interested grabbing the bundle will be able to choose between either black or blue color schemes for the device.
The MSRP for the 3DS XL is normally $199.99, and Mario Kart 7 retails for $39.99, so the bundle is basically a great way to save forty bucks if you were thinking about getting the system and Mario's latest Kart outing anyway. Not a bad little bonus, if you ask us.
The 3DS XL Bundle will be available at retail on December 2. For more on the XL, read our hardware review.
