The first bundle includes the just-launched Super Mario 3D Land game and a Flame Red Nintendo 3DS system. The second bundle includes The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D game and a special 25th anniversary limited-edition Cosmo Black Nintendo 3DS system marked with the Hyrule emblem and gold-colored embellishments.

Both games reportedly make great use of the 3D on the 3DS, and both packs feature very recognizable favorites. I mean, come on, Mario and Zelda! Hot cakes, sell, lots. Nintendo is obviously hitting up the Black Friday sales, and Christmas is directly behind it.
