Best Buy Offers $180 Mario and Luigi Dream Team 3DS XL Bundle for Cyber Monday

Best Buy is offering a 3DS XL bundle that includes Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for just $180 on Cyber Monday.

"Defeat your boredom with this Nintendo 3DS XL, which features a battery-operated, handheld design, so you can stay entertained and play your favorite games while you're out and about. You've always been a fan of the plumber brothers, Mario & Luigi. Now, you can show off your fan status with the limited-edition Luigi graphics, which depict your favorite Italian duo. With a 90% larger screen than the 3DS, the Nintendo 3DS XL showcases vivid, immersive visuals in 3D, making your gaming graphics truly pop. Sometimes bigger really is better," the Best Buy description reads. The listing can be seen here.

The regular price of the bundle is $199.99, and the actual silver handheld is Luigi themed with a design of the character on the model.

The Luigi themed 3DS XL bundle was originally leaked by a Walmart employee who snapped a picture in the store's stockroom. Today is the game's official release date, and so far Best Buy is the only retailer who has a deal on it.

Best Buy also has a Nintendo 3DS bundle that includes Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon for $149.99 and includes free shipping.

Toys R Us has $30 off of 3DS XL's and Amazon has a number of sporadic deals.

Nintendo recently announced a 3DS region-free title called, Louvre, that will be playable in in North America, Europe, and Australia.

Kotaku reports that Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre will be available for digital download and retail and will work across multiple regions instead of being region locked like most games and consoles.

Louvre is not a video game, it is an art museum guide, almost like an app, so it does not have to be rated or broken down like a normal game. This is why it is not region locked, it is supposed to be used all over the world.

"There are many different regions around the world, and each region has its own cultural acceptance and legal restrictions, as well as different age ratings. There are always things that we're required to do in each different region, which may go counter to the idea that players around the world want the freedom to play whatever they want," said Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president, earlier this year.
