Nintendo today unveiled two new DS bundles just in time for the holiday shopping season. On Friday, the company will start selling two special-edition Nintendo DS bundles. Each pairs a custom-color Nintendo DS with one of the platform’s hottest titles.
The first bundle involves the new Gold edition DS, which will come bundled with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The second DS bundle will feature the Metallic Rose Nintendo DS and a copy of the “Best Friends” version of Nintendogs.
“Nintendo DS remains the portable system of choice for gamers,” said George Harrison, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. “Our new bundles will be collector’s items for current gamers while offering an attractive way for people new to video games to play with style.”
With its dual screens, touch-screen, amazing franchises and innovative games, Nintendo DS has been a cornerstone of Nintendo’s efforts to expand the world of video games to new audiences and to get as many people playing as possible. Technically, it’s also the best-selling gaming system on the planet. Seriously. Sales data supports that.
