Just because Nintendo is focusing its energy on the Wii U launch doesn’t preclude a sweet deal or two in portable gaming. Starting November 23rd, the company is bundling Super Mario 3D Land with Flame Red 3DS models at the same $170 price as the handheld by itself; it even comes pre-loaded on memory to save some of the hassles of physical media. You can be sure the limited-run console is all about goosing Black Friday sales at a time when Nintendo really needs the boost, but we don’t think too many mobile gamers will mind if it means entering 3DS ownership with one of the platform’s better games in hand.
