There’s no doubt that Nintendo wants everyone to go out and purchase a 3DS, but they also don’t want consumers to forget they have another handheld still selling strong on the market, and that’s the DSi XL. This holiday season, Nintendo is offering the Midnight Blue and the new Metallic Rose units with a free bounus.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! will be included in this bundle at no additional cost. For fans of classic Mario vs. Donkey Kong action, these are bundles that can’t be missed.

Nintendo releasing bundles with their handhelds is nothing new – They did with basically every major DS release. Pokemon Black and White received their own legendary bundles and we’ll probably see the same with Pokemon Gray if it is ever released.

The 3DS may be the new kid on the block, but the DSi XL is the perfect handheld for those who want a bit more screen real estate to view the huge library of DS games on.

DSi XL Metallic Rose

Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! is the latest in the Mario Vs. Donkey Kong franchise. The game combines the gameplay from the classic Donkey Kong arcade games with Lemmings, giving the player many unique and challenging puzzles to solve. The game also offers a level editor where players can create their own levels and even submit them to online competitions.

With the 3DS selling strong after its price drop and the PS Vita launching in February of next year, it might be tough for gamers to think about investing their time and money in an older handheld.

The DSi XL is a solid handheld with an extensive library of titles to choose from. Those who are low on cash may want to opt for this lower cost gaming option this holiday season.

The Midnight Blue and Metallic Rose DSi XL bundles will be available November 6th at a MSRP of 169.99.
