If you want to play great video games in 2016, you can do worse than a Nintendo 3DS. The Wii U has been a bit of misfire, but the 3DS is a system with some of the excellent games that have been released in the past few years.
Nintendo has the best first party development of hardware manufacturer. The best deals on Nintendo 3DS for Black Friday: hardware-wise, this deal is a piece of cake. Nintendo released two versions of the 3DS, black and white, both with a Mushroom Kingdom detailing, for 99 dollars. This is the deal that you can see pretty much everywhere this Black Friday.
The new Nintendo 3DS does not have a charger. So you will need to buy one, especially if you are giving this as a gift. None of the kids want their new console dying when it runs out of the residual battery. You are also in need of a game.
If it is not a 3DS, it is worth nothing that Gamestop is unloading pre-owned Wiis for 39.99 dollars. Wii Bowling remains one of the best achievements of the 21st century, so this is worth it.
Black Friday gives you an opportunity to get discounted Nintendo games at a good price because these rarely go on sale. First party Nintendo development is reliable, so you know what you are getting.
If Pokémon GO has you itching to play a mainline Pokemon game, Omega Ruby, X, and Y are all on sale. Don’t expect deals on the recently released Pokemon Sun and Moon.
