A little while back, we showed off a sweet new, special edition model of the Nintendo 3DS that was being released overseas. We really hoped that Nintendo would do the right thing and bring it to the United States as well in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series. The recent release of a couple of retailer ads for Black Friday reveal that it is in fact coming, and will be here as soon as next week.
Both Best Buy and Gamestop are advertising the sleek system in their ads for their various after-Thanksgiving sales. The package includes the golden 3DS system, encrusted with the Hyrulean crest, and a copy of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
If anyone wants to pick up a couple of extras and leave it in our stockings, we won’t complain.
