Black Friday is a gamer’s dream holiday. With the gaming industry being a fairly expensive lifestyle to get into, Black Friday serves as a nice reprieve from the stress of having to pick what games you want to spend your money on. And now that Nintendo has released its plans in full for the day, you can start planning in advance.

We got a few details during the Nintendo Direct last Tuesday, such as the Super Smash Bros./Splatoon Wii U bundle. Previously, both games (which have been huge commercial successes for the company) have been offered as separate bundles, but now we’re seeing them together for $279.99, and under $250 at Walmart and Target. If you still haven’t jumped on the Wii U bandwagon, now would be the time.


The 3DS, both new and old, are getting some attention, too. The classic 3DS XL is seeing a sale at $129.99 on Amazon and $129 at Walmart, and it comes with a download code for Super Mario 3D Land. The New 3DS XL is getting a $20 price drop, putting it at $179.99 at GameStop, Best Buy, Toys ‘R’ Us, Target, and


Additionally, Toys”R”Us is having a buy one, get one 40% off all amiibo figures and cards, and we’re finally seeing the individual release of Modern Color 8-Bit Mario without the Wii U bundle at $12.96.

If you’ve already got a Wii U but haven’t picked up Splatoon yet, it’ll be available for $25 at Walmart, alongside Mario Party 10. 3DS titles New Super Mario Bros. 2, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, will be at Target for $15.

Lastly, the eShop is getting some Black Friday love with up to 50% off tons of games for both the Wii U and 3DS, with prices starting at under $5. This will run from November 25th at 9:00 a.m. PST to December 2, 8:59 a.m. PST.


Lots of big things coming, so if you find yourself behind on anything Nintendo, now would be the time to catch up!
