The $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition announcement has put the 3DS into the spotlight for Black Friday 2016.

Nintendo made a splash Monday announcing the $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition. A Nintendo 3DS console for under $100 sounds like a great deal, but the new Nintendo Black Friday special edition might not be the best Black Friday Nintendo 3DS deal to score this month. There are other 3DS consoles that can be the better deal.

The new Nintendo 3DS for under $100 has no game installed. This means you need to consider the cost for at least one game when comparing this 3DS deal with 3DS bundles. There is already a New Nintendo 3DS on the market sold at Target for $149.99. The Super Mario 3D Land Edition New Nintendo 3DS has the Super Mario 3D Land game pre-installed and also comes two extra interchangeable Mario-themed cover plates. The game has a list price of $29.99.

Right now the Super Mario 3D Land Edition New Nintendo 3DS is not cheaper than the new announced Black Friday edition, but Target might offer a discount on the Super Mario 3D Land Edition New Nintendo 3DS on Black Friday. If Target sells the Super Mario 3D Land Edition New Nintendo 3DS for under $130 its a comparable deal.

Moving on to the New Nintendo 3DS XL. This Nintendo handheld console is offered in a number of special editions and game bundles. The advantages of the New Nintendo 3DS XL is its larger screen. A Black Friday deal on a Nintendo 3DS XL could very well beat the $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS edition deal. 

Nintendo offered last year deal on the original 3DS XL console. Walmart and Amazon offered the original Nintendo 3DS XL system with a download code for the game Super Mario 3D Land for $129 on Black Friday 2015. This 3DS XL Black Friday deal was not on the latest generation of the Nintendo 3DS XL, but now we are a year ahead and the New Nintendo 3DS XL has come of age. 

New Nintendo 3DS XL bundles sell regular for $199.99. It is very likely that retailers will at least take of $50 on Black Friday. The Pokemon themed New Nintendo 3DS console could be available for $149.99. Especially in the case of the Nintendo New 3DS XL Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition a bundle deal with the Pokemon Moon & Sun games is possible on Black Friday offering  big savings for Pokemon fans.

So far no released Black Friday 2016 Ad features a Nintendo 3DS deal, but keep your eye pealed. The  $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition is not necessarily the best 3DS deal on Black Friday 2016.

Despite the possibility of better 3DS deals, the demand for the $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition will be very high. So far there is no option to pre-order the 3DS Black Friday edition anywhere. It is not clear yet, if there will be a pre-order option. The console might just show up on sale on November 25. 

Nintendo also has not released the finer details about the $99.99 New Nintendo 3DS Black Friday edition yet. So far we only know that it will be available in white and in black. The Japanese video game maker has not revealed yet what is in the box besides the console. 

 

The Nintendo Switch is missing the crucial Holiday season, but Nintendo is still in and is set to get a large pie from the Holiday gift spending with the NES Classic Edition and Nintendo 3DS sales. I don't believe the Wii U will find any buyers anymore. Also huge will be the launch of Super Mario Run on the iPhone. I already know that I will by all levels for my kids.
