Nintendo’s coming out with a new SNES-themed New 3DS XL on November 27, and if you order it from Amazon, you’ll get a free download of Super Mario Kart, the kart racing game that started it all. Given Nintendo’s track record, this will almost certainly sell out quickly.

It’s been many years since the original 3DS launched. There’s a new version with better 3D, improved controls, and of course, a wealth of excellent games to play. There’s also a new 2DS XL that can do everything its 3D brother can do, aside from 3D.
At long last, we have a new Metroid game. And it’s good! It officially releases on Friday, which means you only have two days left to save $8 by preordering with Amazon Prime. As always, you won’t see the discount until checkout.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is coming to the 3DS eShop this November for $19.99. Originally released for the original DS in 2008, the 3DS game features updated 3D graphics, and includes both the Japanese and English versions, with odd regional variations intact. Neat!
