Nintendo DS Bundles Gold Zelda Announced

Starting November 23, Nintendo gives the planned holiday season a fresh blast of color with the unexpected launch of two special-edition Nintendo DS bundles. Each pairs a custom-color Nintendo DS system with one of the platform’s hottest titles. The new Gold edition comes with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, while the Metallic Rose Nintendo DS comes with the “Best Friends” version of Nintendogs.

With its dual screens, touch-screen, amazing franchises and innovative games, Nintendo DS has been a cornerstone of Nintendo’s efforts to expand the competitive world of video games to new audiences and to get as many people playing as possible.

Nintendo DS boasts 14 different million-unit sellers in North America, including Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day, Pokémon Diamond Version, Pokémon Pearl Version, Yoshi’s Island DS, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team, Big Brain Academy, New Super Mario Bros., Animal Crossing: Wild World, Mario Kart DS, Super Mario 64 DS and four versions of Nintendogs.

The new bundles will build on this legacy as they offer shoppers something new for the holidays.

The glimmering Gold edition of the Nintendo DS comes bundled with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass — the year’s biggest hand-held adventure game — and is emblazoned with the series’ signature Triforce logo. It’s a shiny nugget that any gamer — girl or guy — would be proud to show off.

For those looking for a different kind of dazzling color, the new pretty-in-pink Metallic Rose edition puts a futuristic sheen on your color scheme. It’s bundled with Nintendogs, the acclaimed puppy-interaction software that lets players select, train and play with their own canine companions. In addition, the hardware comes accented with a distinctive pink puppy paw print.
