With Black Friday now less than a month away, some of the deals set to hit store shelves on 28th November — or in the surrounding days — have begun to leak through to the public.
For those unfamiliar with the day, Black Friday is an annual shopping extravaganza started in North America. It's renowned as a day of big savings in stores, though the sales and discounts have spread to surrounding days and weeks, too. In addition to that, the main day is also well known for the odd scuffle.
Whilst many will avoid heading out on Black Friday like the black death, given its less than glowing reputation, others will be keen to grab a bargain or two, especially when Nintendo systems are involved.
Not only have the release schedules for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire been lined up in the States to coincide with Black Friday, but according to these leaks, a few (previously unannounced) system bundles will be available to purchase too.
According to an advert from Target, a "Crystal" Nintendo 2DS system will be available. These 2DS handhelds, sporting a rather vintage translucent shell, go on sale in Europe on 7th November in both Red and Blue varieties, but until this leak had not been confirmed for North America. Judging by the advert alone, it's unclear whether the system will also be available in red, or just the blue variety shown. The "Crystal 2DS" will go on sale at $99.99, a reduction of $30.00 from the RRP.
And finally, based on an escaped Meijer advertisement, there will also be a special Mario Party: Island Tour bundled blue 3DS XL hitting American shelves at a price of $179.99, a grand saving of $20.00.
