Nintendo is launching special black and white editions of the 3DS on Black Friday, which will be available for just $100. The handheld will feature imagery and characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, making it an enticing option if you’re looking for a deal on Nintendo’s current-generation console.
The 3DS currently costs $150, and comes bundled with Super Mario 3D Land. The $100 console won’t include any games, but the fact that it is a special variant combined with the low retail price should attract a lot of customers:
