Nintendo Reveals Luigi-Themed 3DS Bundle
Alas, the 3DS is not green. This is a travesty in the Year of Luigi.
In a series of post-Thanksgiving deals, Nintendo has announced the first Luigi 3DS for North America. There's only one thing missing - the color green!
The Year of Luigi will wrap up in about a month, and to end it Nintendo has bundled Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, which released in March, with a cobalt blue 3DS for $170. The color was first introduced in the limited edition Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS bundle. Whereas the Fire Emblem 3DS has a design featuring the main character's sword and two dragons, the Luigi 3DS is just cobalt blue with nothing fancy on it. What a shame in the Year of Luigi. The bundle will be available starting Nov. 28.
Otherwise, Nintendo Land for Wii U, released in North America Nov. 18, comes with a Luigi-themed Wii Remote Plus controller - and this one's green! This bundle is available starting Dec. for $60.
Nintendo stated Walmart and Target will have Nintendo handhelds on sale for Black Friday. At Walmart 2DS systems will be $100 (originally $130), and at Target 3DS XL systems will be $150 (originally $200).
The Nintendo eShop has been running character-themed sales for a little while now, and it's going to continue over Thanksgiving. Right now classic Mega Man titles are on sale for the 3DS and Wii U. Starting 9 a.m. EST on Nov. 28, Mario will be the star for a week. Link kicked off the character-themed sale, and Donkey Kong will wrap it up from Dec. 5 to Dec. 12.
Even though Luigi can't get his own week, he's got his own year. Sadly, it's coming to a close - and without a special green 3DS.

Shame this isn't the one thats releasing. I know its a 2DS, but its oh so pretty :D
Such a pretty design, sucks its fan made and not Nintendo 'sanctioned'.
Really? They didn't even go with green? This has been one disappointing Year Of Luigi. Let's hope for better things in 1AL (Anno Luigi)
hell, if they didn't stop printing the teal colored ones, it would have been acceptable
