The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds 3DS unboxing photo
The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds 3DS unboxing
by Dale North

This unboxing will look like pure braggery, but that's not the point. I really wanted to show you the beautiful new golden, Triforce-d The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL bundle. We cut the box right open as soon as we got it. It's...it's so pretty! 

As you might have heard, this lovely system bundle has been confirmed for North America, set to hit shelves on November 22, right alongside the game itself. The bundle is priced at $219.99, and comes with this beautiful system, a download code for A Link Between Worlds, a 4GB memory card, the standard AR cards, a stylus and the AC adapter. 

I only have it early because the Golden Goddesses have smiled upon me this day. 

Oh. Does anyone want a skanky blue 3DS XL?

Wii U gets a $50 price drop on Sept 20, now at $299 photo
Wii U gets a $50 price drop on Sept 20, now at $299
by Dale North

The Wii U Deluxe Set will be priced at $299, dropping $50 off the price, come this September 20. Use that to play all of the new Nintendo titles coming at the end of the year (list below).

In related news, a new The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle -- which you heard about first right here on Destructoid -- will be available on the same date, for the same price -- so that's the one you'll get. You'll get a black Wii U Deluxe, a GamePad with gold lettering, a gold Hyrule crest, a download code for a digital version of Hyrule Historia, and a download code for the game itself. Nice.

Hit the jump for Nintendo's fall release schedule.
