DS Lite Mario Brain Age
Nintendo today unveiled two special edition DS Lite handhelds specifically intended to spur sales at the height of Black Friday. The Mario Red Nintendo DS comes in its namesake color with Mario's signature "M" logo and a copy of New Super Mario Bros. bundled with the system. An Ice Blue DS is targeted more at girls and women and comes in its logo-free color along with a copy of the original Brain Age puzzle game. Both are functionally identical to the inaugural DS Lite.
The two systems will cost the same $150 as the regular model and should be available in US shops on Black Friday itself, or November 28th.
