UK industry magazine MCV reports that Ubisoft and Nintendo will offer a 3DS hardware bundle in October this year.

The console will be available in Cosmos Black or Aqua Blue and come packed with Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell 3D and Driver Renegade 3D. There's currently no price for the packages.

This isn't the first time Nintendo and Ubisoft have collaborated on hardware and software bundles; recently the black Wii was combined with top-selling title Just Dance 2 for a limited time.

Ubisoft's E3 press conference takes place on Monday 6th June at 2:30pm PST, 10:30pm UK time. Expect plenty more Nintendo news from the show then, including a new Raving Rabbids game and Rayman's return to 2D platforming in Rayman Origins.
