You "red" that right.

It’s time to start saving for November 7th. This holiday season, Nintendo shows it’s no stranger to good marketing, and is releasing two special bundles in honor of the 25th (wow, has it really been that long?) anniversary of the release of Super Mario Bros. on the NES.

The bundles are for the Wii and DSi, and if you hadn’t already caught on, feature red consoles. The Wii bundle comes with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Wii Sports, a red Wii Remote with Motion Plus, and a red Nunchuk to accompany it. The suggested price is $199.99, which aside from being somewhat of a middle finger to those of us who already bought a Wii, makes for a damn good deal.

Click the jump for the information on the DSi bundle.

DSi owners will be seeing red this holiday season.

The new DSi bundle has quite a lot to offer. It includes Mario Kart DS on cartridge, and has Brain Age Express: Arts and Letters, and Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock preloaded into the console. Want to guarantee yourself a unit of either console (or even both)? The official Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary site has a special pre-order page with links to participating retailers. The suggested retail price is $179.99, so if you intend to get both consoles, you’ll want to save up quite a bit of dough in the coming weeks.

    They're really nice, but the DSiXL, imo, won't sell too well. I mean with the 3DS on the horizon and all…

  • Blizz

    I want one so bad, but already have a Wii. :<

  • I think the black and white look better on the Wii, honestly.

  • majoras mask fan

    I can’t wait for a triforce wii and ha mario won’t geta a 3ds special editio for is 25 birthdat but zelda will and I will wait for the triforce 3ds

  • ChainofTermina

    you know, I just realized, if they DO do something like this for Zelda, the Wii will probably be green, not gold.

    • I concur! I'd totally love to see it in green, though I think the gold color would also go better with the "Triforce Wii" theme. In fact, I would lean toward the green selection, yet they could have a Triforce tattooed on it just like the Mario images above, but have it filled in with gold on the outer triangles.

      • mikey_puff

        i think it should be a green wii. with an enourmous triforce on the side. thatd be epic 🙂

    • Shaelyn

      you sure? they did a gold DS Lite for Phantom Hourglass, and a gold limited edition Advance SP for Minish Cap…I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see a gold Wii.

      Green would work too, and I'd be happy with green, but it doesn't make as much sense to me.

    • LoZisSo69

      I think by the time Nintendo does one for Zelda it'd wouldn't be a Wii, it'd be something even awesomer 😀 and I think green with a gold triforce tattoed would look pretty goo too.

  • suzettergreinwich

    This looks so shiiiiny. I kinda want one… but if they had a Zelda one, I would want it more.

  • LoZisSo69

    is this what you mean? http://blog.deadlycomputer.com/2006/12/20/603/
    fking win.

  • Keimori

    I'm sorta hesitant, anyone thing theres a zelda DSI in the works, I kinda plan on buy a DSI anyone, but i don't want to buy the mario one, If a Zelda one is in the works.

    • Lukar

      I doubt a Zelda one's going to be released– there's no need for there to be one. The DS Zelda series is essentially finished; OoT3D proves it.

  • To hell with that. I already bought the white and black. I don't need to buy every color in the spectrum.

  • Milla the Icecarl

    Good thing I havn't purchased my own Wii yet 🙂

  • QueenxLink

    I'd really like to have a godlen Triforce Wii and a golden Triforce DSi… Mmm if only they made a golden Triforce DSi XL! The bigger the better!

  • Merkku

    Omg, that's just insane! In a good way of course. Wow.

  • mikey_puff
