3DS nears 6 million US sales, Flame Red bundle inbound

Monday, 19th November 2012 23:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Nintendo is approaching an important milestone in the US, and this new Super Mario 3D Land pack will probably push it past the post.

Gamespot reports the new bundle includes a Flame Red 3DS and Super Mario 3D Land pre-installed for $170. It will be available from Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving traditionally associated with spending lots of money on slightly discounted electronic goods.

Nintendo can afford to value add on the 3DS’s RRP, as it has managed nearly 6 million sales of the two models – 3DS and 3DS XL – in the US alone.

Worldwide, the system has sold 22 million units, and software sales have passed 64 million.

The 3DS launched in March 2011 and has had an RRP of $170 since a price cut form its original $250 price tag.

    hmm, perhaps i will pick up a Flam Red 3DS, since all the games Nintendo has been releasing have been for the 3DS, kinda sucks tho, i think 3D is just a lame gimmick

    @2 Don’t worry. Just turn 3D off and it’s just a fancy DS with a very very nice circle pad

    #1 well i do love the 3D of my 3DS without glasses, and i find that in some games like pushmo and mario land it really enhances the gameplay, but i understand if you dont like it, is not for everybody.

    #2 +1, and the graphics are an improvement over the Ds.
