If you are still holding out on your decision to buy a 3DS, here is something else to help tip the balance, at least for European gamers. On December 2nd Nintendo will be releasing the previously announced ‘Ice White’ 3DS model, in a snazzy bundle alongside Super Mario 3D Land, in the pretty impressive looking packaging below.Hopefully the game within the bundle will be presented within the full retail box, Nintendo has a nasty habit of just storing their bundled games in flimsy paper wallets or without any packaging at all. We want to store the game on our shelves dammit!
It certainly seems that Nintendo is going all-out in a bid to consolidate its place in the handheld marketplace and take advantage of the Vita’s delayed release in the West. Whether the introduction of a new colour console and the dual heavy hitters of Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 will be sufficient to do the trick remains in the hands of consumers.
Although this bundle has so far only been announced for Europe, (Japan is getting their own Monster Hunter Tri pack) surely it is also likely that US gamers could be seeing the box filter down their chimney this yuletide? Just be careful to avoid getting any soot on your 3DS, these white models have to be kept clean you know!
